What I Imagine

IF YOU LOSE YOURSELF in your work, you find who you are. If you express the best you have in you in your work, it is more than just the best you have in you that you are expressing. Frederick Buechner, Whistling in the Dark I thought it was rather coincidental (not) that my quote of […]

A Gentle Glow

Today was a really good day. Although I don’t like to write posts that aren’t uplifting, or bursting with joy, I have to say that yesterday it proved to be helpful. For me anyway. Something in a comment got me thinking about my reluctance to make decisions. He mentioned that some people actually preferred having someone else make […]

Tonight… after I’ve enjoyed this relaxing day, I’ll sit […]

Slightly Closer-up

I managed to hunt down the parrots before it was too dark. They were still 3 houses down in the neighbors backyard tree, which is very TALL mind you, but I did manage to get a little more detail after working on it a bit. I just think it’s fascinating that these parrots live in […]
