Words Mean Things


but pictures
bring life to your story.

There's a whole lot of living to be had!

First thing
welcome to another 

buried treasures.
Sometimes you just never know what may be on the other side.


An experience of love and support and a bounty of beauty.
Sometimes delicious things to eat too!
Never ever stop learning, or doing or questioning.

A simple hello.
those spontaneous
simple kind hellos exchanged
changes lives forever.
A cherry for your banana split maybe?

Isn't it always about the cherry on top?
If you're around munchkins it sure is.
Pickles and cherries go with everything
didn't you know that?

When you hear the bell, you feel a tug at your heart.

"Dare to be different.
Show off you
to everyone you meet.
Stand out and fill your world with joy."
Said the little turquoise sailboat to all the other sailboats.

Friends do things together.

Sharing precious silly, spontaneous, and captivating moments.


"Each friend represents a world in us,
 a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
Anais Nin

The Phone Booth
Things we may miss, and hold endless memories of.

This one is actually still in service at our local airport, for public use in Dakota County.


"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."
Mother Teresa

"PEACE begins with a smile."

"Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand."
Mother Teresa

I extend my hand to you all
I'm so happy when we share this time together.
Take good care of you.

The tree stump planter is great.

P.S. When I was in collage, some friends put a phone booth in their dorm room and hooked it up. (But the campus police eventually made them take it back to where it belonged.)

Words mean things...but only with context.

What could, "Eff, you," mean?

"Oh, aren't you a darling," can mean a lot of things too. It depends.

*big grin*

These are happy pictures, and they make me think. I never thought that a cherry on a spoon could make such a good sculpture. And I'd like to say "hi" to the nice little kid in the second and third picture, and see what it is that he is looking at. So much happiness from small things and kind human interactions.

Next time I need a public phone, I'll head to ND. Great photos with cute kids and wonderful VW bugs.
