Have Yourselves a Merry, Little Christmas

It is Christmas Eve and the year is almost over....
This has been a whirlwind year for me.
I've purchased and renovated a house.
I've taken in a half a dozen wayward teens
and I found my sweet, loving better half!

Life is rich and full
and I am happy and grateful.

My wish for the few who read this:
Have yourselves a Merry Little Christmas!
Peace and Love from my heart and home to yours,

Art in All Things

I see art in everything.......

From colorful router bits........

To the Christmas tree shaped wood pile.......

A mossy brick path.......

and even a winter's sky

It is all around us if we only choose to see.....
Life is art!

Sunshine and More

Today I felt the sun warm my face
as I turned towards the heat of it's fire.
It has gently caressed me
while the rays swept across the day.

I am fortunate.
I can escape the confines of the building where I work
slip quietly into the day unnoticed
but for a few moments stolen,
only to return to the shadows within......

Pictures from my Grand Adventure

These pics don't even begin to tell the tale of my two week Grand Adventure out West but only scratch the surface of the 1,200 plus pics I took on the journey. America is so much more vast than I had ever dreamed and this once in a lifetime trip was the perfect way to see some of it!
