Old Trees

 Tribute to old trees. I loved hanging out in the high-to-me branches of the tree in my front yard, my favorite hangout when I was a kid. “So from my eyes the message lingers, old trees give charm and character.” Zoom in to see the quote embedded in the painting.

Make Peace with Reflection

When I was about 16 or so, I went to a family camp in Big Sur with my mom and my brother.  There was a young kiddo there who, with great authority, told me one day, "You're going to be a funny looking adult." Pretty sure I gave him my best stink eye and wandered off with a new friend I'd made. Well, I can't begin to tell you how many times in my life that little kiddo's words have echoed in my head as I've done this adult thing. An inopportune reflection in a mirror...an unflattering photo..."Oh, fudge, I AM a funny looking adult!" Oy. Thankfully, the older I get the more at peace I've become with reflecting upon my reflection.

"Make Peace with Reflection."

What Matters is that We Embark

 “The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.”

- Barbara Hill

Patchwork Quilt

Like a patchwork quilt, I realize now that it’s the culmination of small beautiful moments that makes the quilt of our lives so beautiful. And even though we haven’t had as much time to create the fabric for the squares of ours, I know without a doubt that I will leave behind an entire quilt of beautiful moments.” - Inglath Cooper
