Frosty Morning

Our lives go through many changes, sometimes suddenly, and we are caught unexpectedly in the cold.   When we are caught in the sudden winter, we think that the sun will never again warm our faces and we forget that the cycle will continue and things will soon begin anew. 



The weather in Mississippi is very unpredictable, one day it can be 80˚F (26˚C) and the next it can snow.   This has happened more often in recent years, you can call it global warming or climate change… it can be natural or man influenced, but it is obvious that something is happening.  Just a few days ago we were wearing shorts and sweating, and this morning our world was covered in ice and it was a nice 28˚F (-2˚C).  While this leads to a beautiful frosty world, it does wreak havoc on our bodies, as well as confusion over our wardrobe.

Blessing


Here we are on the cusp of yet another holiday season, and I can't help but think that we forget at times what the holidays are really  about. Well after much meditation and soul searching, the answer came to me.. Community. That is truly what it is about, we may not realize it, but if we sit and think.. even for a second, we will realize how very lucky to have such a wonderful network of people.

Sometimes when I feel the loneliest, I think of the people that I can count on, and these are the people that I hope can count on me. These people range from my family, to my friends, and the people somehow manage to bend the family/friend barrier. But I am also lucky to count each and everyone of you in my extended community. So no matter what holiday's you celebrate, be it Yule, Christmas, Hanukkah, or even the upcoming Thanksgiving. I hope that each and every one of your lives are filled with love, and prosperity, and I offer a small blessing to each of you, including the people that have come into our lives, and may have stepped out.



"To put the world right in order,
we must first put the nation in order;
To put the nation in order,
we must first put the family in order;
To put the family in order,
we must first cultivate our personal life;
We must first set our hearts right."
~Confucius

Look


Things are not always strictly what they appears to be when you first look at them. It takes further inspection to look into things and see more of the details that exist within. We often forget to look, and truly see. We are all guilty of this sin… I challenge you all to look at something you see everyday, really look at it. You may be surprised at things you forgot were there, or you never noticed before.

This frog is an interpretation of the Froggie that is on my foot. It is a line drawing in the style of few I have done in the past, they are very time consuming.

L*O*V*E

It is has been written many times in the past, in many forms. “The world is lacking in Love.”  I believe this is true whole heartedly, with more love in our hearts we could do so much good for the world around us.  From helping the less fortunate, to doing more little things for those around us… the world would just be a better place.  However I fear that we have more negativity and distrust, and this is more abundant than that one little four letter word.  L*O*V*E
