All That We Share

Welcome to 
on Sunday

with highlights from this year's Renaissance Festival 2019.

"What I know for sure is this:
You are not built to shrink down to less,
but to blossom into more.
To be more splendid.
To be more extraordinary. 
To use every moment to fill yourself up."

"Sometimes we spend so much time and energy 
thinking about where we want to go
that we don't notice where we happen to be."
Dan Gutman

There's so much more to a book than just the reading. 
quotes Maurice Sendak

It's how I feel while attending a Renaissance Festival.
There's so much more than just being there.

Oh my goodness, haven't you ever met a Grey Elf Before?

"Elvish singing is not a thing to miss,
in June under the stars
not if you care for such things."
J.R.R.R Tolkien

Thoughts on
 dressing up.
It's not just people doing it!

"Dogs are not our whole life,
but they make our lives whole."

(take time in life to greet those that enter your day.)

Precious beauty captured in stonework.

You know someone is special when their absence
 is felt deeply within.

It is good people who make good places.
Anna Sewell

You always hear incredible new names for dogs
 at a Renaissance festival.
 Like the pup following behind Karina. 

So many slithering friends to meet!

"The snake stood up for evil in the garden."
Jack Frost

Of course you know there's a dragon on your shoulder? 

Someday if not already, someone will create a 
Renaissance Festival Museum.
What a sight that will be. 

"Museums are places 
where we're taught to pay attention."
Isn't that how we should 
 experience everywhere we go?
