Chiseled Thoughts

Positivity, Thoughts chiseled with good intent, Like an open book. Greetings everyone! I’ve been experimenting with some techniques to create some new forms of visual communication. I was inspired after looking at graffiti and wall murals, and I started wondering what it is that I love about them so much. I think that, for the […]

Rejoice!

Where flowers bloom, so does hope. —Lady Bird Johnson Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends […]

Melting Time

I’m actually getting a late start on word prompts tonight. I really do enjoy those, but trying to fit multiple words into a poem or story is—to be honest—exhausting me. I think I need a word for the “week,” so that I have time to digest it, and ponder what the word really means to […]

Every single time I’ve tried! So weird! Anyway… I’m surrendering on the production of that post. At least until the words come streaming in. And I trust […]

A Healthy Brunch

I’m really liking the action around here today! This is the squirrel that chased the parrots away; munching on a loquat. I guess nature is dictating what I’ll be taking photographs of this season! I’ve added some fun color and the squirrel is a bit hidden (like his henchman) behind a leaf, so I did a zoom […]

The Shack

Don’t go in there! 😉 I ended up back around the old zoo today. It’s so beautiful outside, and they have some (gentle) inclines to walk (but I really felt it in my hamstrings!). I think I should get a Fitbit someday and see just how much walking I really do when I go out.

It’s a Magical Day

I caught a few minutes of a show my mom was watching… and a teacher was telling his student that her imagination was […]
