Words Are Clothes

Words Matter.
Words have import.
Douglas Kennedy

Forgotten egg.

we never forget a smile, or a perfect summer
or a thoughtful word.

Words are clothes that thoughts wear.
Samuel Butler

Good morning everyone!

What We Wear

Nothing you wear is more important than your smile.
Or your imagination. Especially your imagination.

Imagination's secret of great style is 
to feel creative in whatever you wear!

On being you.
As you as you can be.

and yet,
We're All The Same

Count your days by moments instead of days on the calendar.

We all live with the object of being happy.
Our lives are all different
and yet the same.
Anne Frank

Rubber duckies are never lost
they're always there to lead us on.

Always stay afloat. Always.

Really, this is April? April in Minnalaska?

This year spring offers 
a gift of playing in the snow.

When snow gets in your eyes!

It cannot be denied, snow in the eyes or not, 
this is incredible fun!

We look up at the same stars
and see such different things.
George R.R. Martin

Words and art.
What they do for you.

"The purpose of art is washing
the dust of daily life
off our souls."
Pablo Picasso

Be brave be bold be you.
and come back and see me again.
Take good care of you.

Great photos and wonderful thoughts—will winter ever end for those of you up north?

I have decided to consolidate my two blogs (one is more professional) as I can’t see any reason to keep working on them both. In a strange way this feels like I’m coming out of the closet as I haven’t written about my livelihood. Most of my posts from now on will be at

You’re welcome to stop by.

Hello, I always enjoy your family and kiddies photos. The dog is a cutie too.
Spring is slow to arrive here, a frost warning for us tonight. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and weekend!

Lovely pictures Karen. I am glad you are feeling better. Have a lovely weekend. Here in Sicily it seems like we are finally getting nice weather, but now they are predicting rain again. The scirocco is very annoying.
