Give Thanks…

NO MATTER WHAT Hmmm… well isn’t that a wee bit grandiloquent?! Between the Word of the Day, grandiloquent, and the weekend writing prompt, peristeronic, I’m beginning to think that I need to keep a thesaurus and a dictionary at my desk!  Grandiloquent: Language or behavior is very formal, literary, or exaggerated, and is used by […]

In Our Hands

We weave the pattern, Love dwindles, or ripples out, It is in our hands. As you can see, I’m still experimenting with my portrait/visual communication ideas here.

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 […]

The Jubilant Journey

This Alphabet Game is great because it prompts me to explore words. Words link to other words and—as I follow the trail—ideas literally spell themselves out. I thought it would be fun to share my journey through the letter “J” today. While exploring Joy—the first “J” word that came to mind—I found that one of […]

Dreamers of Dreams

D is for Dreams Everyone knows what dreams are, but I wanted to find a more personal way to describe them. Not the dreams we have when we’re asleep; the dreams we dream when we’re awake. I poked around google and found exactly what I was searching for: A synonym for dream is HOPE.

Just think happy thoughts and you’ll fly.  Peter Pan A couple of days ago I set out to write a poem inspired by the Word of the Day Challenge; the word being “dubious.” While wandering around the house, sentences and phrases welled up inside of me, and I sat down numerous times to jot down […]

A Ton of Bricks

Devote yourself to an idea. Go make it happen. Struggle on it. Overcome your fears. Don’t you forget: this is your dream. Read, read, read… I’ve been doing that a lot to learn new techniques in Photoshop. And I’m back to my sketchy images. The featured image is Bricktown, Oklahoma City. I took this during […]

Rise & Shine

I caught a bee in action this morning, in the crepe myrtle, so thought I would share! Hopefully you can spot him. 🙂 I looked up bee quotes, and really liked this one for today. The honey is sweet but the bee has a sting.  Various translations I found: If you want good things you […]

A Good Start

Rise up and attack the day with enthusiasm! It’s already 11:45 a.m. here in California, so this quote is a wee bit tardy… but it’s a good one nonetheless. And I had an extended coffee time, so it’s still morning in my eyes. 😉 I did some wandering around the backyard earlier and shot this […]

Signs of Change

Now that I’m back in the realm of randomness, I’m messing with alterations. This is a street sign by my old High School. Actually, it’s the street that I used to hang out on when I would cut classes, and do other experimental things. I’ve always said that I hated school. I really DID back then—but I thought […]
