A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Here's to Vacations

It's so much fun getting away from the normal, paranormal, abnormal, subnormal and supernormal stressors of everyday life! Visit some friends, spend some time with the kids, too.

Even mini-vacations are wonderful for the mind and soul. Just as our camping trip a few weeks ago was a delight--roasting marshmallows around the fire, beachcombing for sea glass and whatnot, having a sip of wine or apple cider or coffee, breakfast on the grill, friends, searching the shops in town, etc.

Sometimes I think it might even be nice to stay home for a week or so, laze around the yard, watch the wildlife, take photos, sip iced tea or mojitos, listen to soothing music, play in and with the water while I water my flowers, and all that--BUT no phones, no people, no light pollution, no noise pollution. What in the world am I thinking!

Here's to vacations: Cheers! And when you get back, you have so much more work to do, you wonder why you went in the first place!

As always, pleasant dreams, my friends. Dreams of deserted islands, dreams of swinging hammocks, dreams of walking on the wet sands of your favorite beach, dreams of floating upwards to the moon and stars... Good night!
