balance ...

i think finding a balance in what we attempt to accomplish in life is one of the most rewarding pursuits .. for me that balance is with nature .. i think .. i am invigorated when i see something as beautiful as the sunset .. as quiet and calm as the summer winds over the trees .. the way they dance across the tops of the oak and pecan of texas .. the silhouette of the day falling into slumber .. the marking of evening .. i love that time of day .. when supper is either been had or being fixed .. and we do fix supper down here ..i can see fall in the air .. i know the good is upon us ..
we started 'the sort' today. i spent a lot of time 'fiddlin' - trying to make sense of the endless trinkets and do dahs i have managed to rescue. i decided instead of sorting them all out and placing each in a small bag and pricing it some small price - i would go big - i am going to set it all aside and use the little pieces and bits to create something big and noticeable - something that says 'look at me' - something that won't get lost and hopefully won't chance a destiny of landfill abandon.


  1. Thank you so much for your gracious and supportive comments on my blog. You are too kind.

    I hope to make it to Zapp Hall, and will surely come by and say hello. Oh, one more I live in your warehouse? ;-)


  2. When my boys were little we always said and had "supper" then one day my oldest started calling it "dinner". Just didn't sound right, but I played along with him. We still call it supper, such sweet memories my friend. As I was driving home this evening the quarter moon was so pretty. I could sit for hours and watch birds, nature, the sun, fire flies, you name it. You sure we are "kin folk"! ha ha I think so...

  3. Your lovely words paint a lovely picture. I love the quiet and peacefulness of nature and find it so necessary in my life.

  4. Thanks for stopping by ...yes, it's important to keep such memories alive with pictures and respect. It sounds like you've got you hands full in that new wharehouse. How wonderful it looks though...does all that get taken to Zapp Hall??!!Whew!
