Linked 52 - Peace...

Peace for me has changed through out the years.

I was/am at Peace when...

I was pregnant - each time
my child snuggled in my arms
all of them were getting along
I had the house all to myself
there was quiet
I turned to 99.5 (Classical) in the car with my noisy children and they quieted
I sat in my favorite pew at church and felt God's arms around me
O Holy Night turned out beautifully when Kira and I sang a duet
my children all made it through High School with nothing horrible happening
my children are all doing well
I can divert arguments
all my work is done and I can read a book without feeling guilty
someone really likes my art
I am out in my gardens
I am walking in nature
I see a sky full of stars, a pink and orange sunset, a gorgeous sunrise
life is going smoothly
I feel exceptionally alive.

See what these lovely ladies have to say about Peace

Linked 52 - Shadows


I'm only a day late for this one, whew!
I cheated a bit and dug through my photos until I found something worthy of the word shadow, which turned out to be a little more difficult than I had thought.
I came across my Arizona album which includes the Grand Canyon, and some honest to goodness shadows.

Check out these ladies take on Shadows.
I caught up and posted Water...keep scrolling down.

Linked 52 - Water


Doing a little catching up this week, work has been sooooo busy.

My hubby and I ate at Joe's Garage last night, then walked on over to the Walker Art Center and the Sculpture Garden What a cool place, lots of different sculptures and gardens to walk around, including the Giant Cherry (I always thought it was called the Cherry and the Spoon, but apparently I was wrong and I now know better).

Water shoots out the stem.
