A Ride Worthwhile

Today's the day to spread some love around, 
no matter the weather.

Once again let's ride out the storm.

Believe it or not-
I took this smack in the middle
 of what the weather folks were upgrading all week long,

Another brutal Winter Storm on its way!

Kind of pretty right?

Thank goodness they didn't cancel our convention.

Today's your day to express your happiness!

Some people feel the rain
others just get wet.
Bob Marley
So if you're skating on thin ice 

why not dance!

Let's be grateful to people who make us happy!

Don't wait for the storms of
 your life to disappear
rather allow joy to appear.

No matter where your ride may be
or where life takes you
never forget your roots.

It is in the roots,
not the branches 
that a tree's greatest strength lies.
Matshona Dhliwayo 

"Creativity doesn't wait for that perfect moment."


"Don't be satisfied with stories,
how things have gone with others.
Unfold your own myth."

Please make no mistake little humans.
You are under my protection now,
and I protect what is mine.
Danielle Monsch

Have I told you about the artist I know
 that while he creates from within his own soul
he does so to serve others most of all.

Mostly by no profit.

Here's an example.

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
Carl Sagan

Today's the day to share with others.

Love doesn't make the world go round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
Franklin P. Jones

Art by twelve year old Peyton Ek (12 yrs old)

"I created a "Journey of Peace" using a puzzle road. 
Everyone contributes a piece creating a road leading to peace." 

Children are happy because they don't have a file 
in their minds called 
"All the things that could go wrong."
Marianne Williamson

Instead their files read what can I do to top what I just did?

This coming weekend I'll be on Lake Harriet for their
Art Shanty Project so be ready to view my visit in a few days!

Thanks for stopping in every comment you leave is a gift!
Take good care of you.

Why Outdoors

Aren't we lucky for another new
 and fresh series of chapters just waiting to be lived?
Let's move away from the same old story line though.
I'm so eager for new adventures, I trust you are too.

"If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul."
Drew Barrymore

Take over your winter blues with nature's gifts!
Last Saturday I visited our lovely
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum 

and I'm going to share a few tips for this new year.

Try going where you feel most alive.

Explore the unseen.

Seek adventures that open your mind.
Don't be stuck with the same ho-hum attitudes.

Gather earthy goodies
 and create anything.

You can try the same places or things
 just with new eyes/ideas/shapes/designs.

Work hard but travel so much harder.
Go to that destination you've been putting off.

Life is short just ask any snowman.

"Until you step into the unknown, 
you don't know what you're made of."
Roy T. Bennett

Last but not least for my post today
is spending more thought towards the ever mysterious
 shadows in our daily lives.
Victor Hugo

Had I cut my dog Misty out of this photo you'd never been able to guess where this shadow came from.
Here's to sharing mystery shadows to open our minds!

Thanks for stopping by I always appreciate your visits!
Take good care of you.
