Brand new second hand thoughts



“One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.”

Maya Angelou
(b. 1928); poet

Grace in small things:

1. The generosity of friends

2. A new old sewing machine courtesy of a generous friend!!

3. The smell of chili roasting and knowing fall is coming

4. Gloomy, rainy mornings and evenings

5. A pink morning walk with moisture

6. The perfect sliver of a moon through the clouds

7. Another finished piece for the show

8. 6 whole weeks at the job

9. Thinking of things to celebrate at the end of the month

10. People keep coming back to read my blog!

Or just to visit, or thinking of you with great affection, or leaving you silly comments in order to make you smile. Who could I be talking about, "I is wondering, sugar"? I am still waiting for the cigar boxes, leave it up to me to send for them in Chicago. It seems that they are being sent by donkey express to Portland. Don't ask. But I will have the shrine, maybe even "shrines" done before the deadline. Be good to yourself, hugs from here.

"putsmstf"? what heck of a verification word is that?

PS: Love the photos.
