Get Down and Look!!

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?

Winter Etching

Winter is an etching, spring is a water color, summer is an oil painting and autumn is a mosaic of all of them.

Nature

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, 
places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer 
and give strength to body and soul alike.

January

The leaves hop, scraping on the ground.
It is deep January. The sky is hard.
The stalks are firmly rooted in ice.
It is in this solitude, a syllable,
Out of these gawky flitterings,
Intones its single emptiness,
The savagest hollow of winter-sound.
~Wallace Stevens

Master Artist


What a severe yet master artist old Winter is.... No longer the canvas and the pigments, but the marble and the chisel.

Scatter Joy

Hope you scatter joy and happiness wherever you go all 365 days of the upcoming year and get the same in return. Happy New Year to you!


New Year's Words of Wisdom

Hold the smile, let the tear go, keep the laugh, 
lose the pain,  look for joy, and abandon the fear. 
Happy New Year dear!



Oh the Year Fades!!

A spirit haunts the year's last hours
Dwelling amid these yellowing bowers...
The air is damp, and hush'd, and close,
As a sick man's room when he taketh repose
An hour before death;
My very heart faints and my whole soul grieves
At the moist rich smell of the rotting leaves,
And the breath
Of the fading edges of box beneath,
And the year's last rose...
~Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892), "Song," Poems, 1830


New Years Wishes!

Hope and faith flower from the cheerful seeds 
of the old year to the sprouting garden 
of the new year's dawn.
