Inside myself is a place where I live all alone,
and that's where I renew my springs that never dry up.

Patience is the key
a virtue unknown to me
I wait for a spark

  1. Bless your artist's dryspell.....

    I was happy to revisit the slide show as I loved it before. While there, I checked to see that I'd commented at that time to let you know how beautiful it was. I did, but can't compliment this gorgeous, emotional, peaceful slide show too much!

  6. The poetry of life
    is one spark
    that ignites
    the human soul.

  9. I can relate to dryspells. I work in glass and haven't created anything new in six months. I have thousands of dollars of beautiful sheet glass waiting for me and I've got nothing. Hang in there - it'll come.

  17. Hi Jessica and Cody Have a merry christmas and a blessed new year. Joke of the week.....The Collar


    A priest was walking along the school corridor
    near the preschool wing when a group of little
    ones were trotting by on the way to the cafeteria.

    One little lad of about three or four stopped and
    looked at him in his clerical clothes and asked,
    "Why do you dress funny?"

    He told him that he was a priest and that this is
    the uniform priests wear.

    Then he pointed to the priest's little plastic
    collar insert and asked, "Does it hurt? Do you
    have a Boo-boo?"

    The priest was perplexed till he realized that to
    him the collar insert looked like a Band-Aid. So
    the priest took it out to show him. On the back
    of the collar are raised letters giving the name of
    the manufacturer.

    The little guy felt the letters, and the priest asked,
    "Do you know what those words say?"

    "Yes I do," said the lad who was not old enough
    to read. Peering intently at the letters he said,
    "It says, 'Kills ticks and fleas up to six months!

  20. It's that time of the year ... so much is going on and it's easy to be overwhelmed.

    BTW, the cemetery shot is perfect with the colors of the sunset as the backdrop.
