Coloring: Day 2

I’ve never been able to help the fact that I’m easily amused. I’m extremely grateful for this fact—especially during these past few days (or weeks, or months)—when it’s so easy to be moody. I know that my coloring projects aren’t “originals” but they are dear to me nonetheless, so I’m going to share them damn […]

Giant Fruit

If people could shrink, Food would last so much longer. That’s just what I think. Written for the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Shrink & Think That was a tough Haiku!

Love and Light

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3 It’s been too long! I think this is the craziest, busiest semester I’ve ever had. It’s all good though because I love (most of) my classes and there are only 3 weeks left before it’s over. YAY! I wanted to pop in […]

The Excursion

This morning I drove into Pasadena. It wasn’t a major excursion, but it was in the opposite direction of where I normally travel and everything was unfamiliar. I wish I had taken my camera. It’s the perfect place for street photography, but it was just TOO hot! I wanted to get in—and get out. I […]

Salsa Dancing

The newest addition to my Garden Art series: I know, I know… It doesn’t look like it came from the garden. Believe it or not, this image was created with cherry tomatoes.

Karma

Whatever goes up, will surely come down; Like a boomerang, it just all goes around. You get what you give, or reap what you sow; If hate’s what you plant, then hate’s what will grow. If you want to see change; if love’s what you thirst, Be bold with your kindness… Dare to go first.

Is Fear Surreal?

FEAR has Two Meanings: Forget Everything and Run… …or Face Everything and Rise. A quote by Zig Ziglar I think there may be a third option. Be still. Because maybe, like this woman seems to realize, there is nothing to fear—but fear itself. 🙂 Image created for Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Surreal

An Ode to Introverts Solitude, You are so dear to me. Sometimes I wonder, Do I love you more than I should? My friends are all out gallivanting, And here I am, Alone with you. You give me comfort, Help me gather my thoughts, Like a breath of fresh air, You are my best friend. […]
