The Makeover

You can use an eraser on the drafting table or a sledge hammer on the construction site. Frank Lloyd Wright So true. It pays to fix your errors as soon as possible. Fortunately, there are also times when you can tweak or modify. That’s what I’m STILL doing here. It’s been quite a chore, but it’s also been enlightening. Reviewing some of my past writing has reminded me of things I’d virtually forgotten. On the one hand, I’m a little tired and stressed out after reading posts that I wrote over a year ago.

And as far as that burnout thing, I got my mojo back this morning and it’s all systems go. Peace & Love!

Street Life

A Grandson’s Kisses are Like Tattoos on Your Heart. This was a fun shot today. My grandson and I noticed the cute little flower dangling near the ground on our way to the donut shop. He’s a pretty cooperative subject if his face doesn’t have to be in the photo. This was the first time I tried a color splash, so I was excited about that as well!
