Day 263 – Stormy Weather

It poured today! Now, this may not be big news but it was very odd for late June in Colorado. We get brief intense thunderstorms often with hail in the summer months but it rained all night and to about noon today. I loved it! The smell of rain on a summer morning makes me […]

Day 262 – Sparkle and Shine

My Dad is one of the most remarkable people I know. You may think it’s strange of me to name a post about my Dad – “Sparkle and Shine” – but that is what he does. His goodness shines out of him, his smile sparkles and his laugh is contagious. My Dad makes friends of […]

I love the concept of a dropping a Love Bomb! Basically – it’s flooding a person with love and attention to get them through a difficult time. Couldn’t we all use that some days! It’s such a great idea that someone created a website and turned it into a movement asking people to spend 5 […]

Day 257 – Crimson Thread

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break. – Chinese Proverb A red string in Chinese folklore connects those who are destine to meet and in Tibetan Buddhism a red string is a “blessing cord” and according […]

Day 256 – Matryoshka Apples

When I was growing up I was fascinated with the Russian nesting doll that sat on the shelf in our home. I loved opening and lining up the the family of babushkas. I insisted on matching the painted tops to the painted bottoms – aligning them as precisely as possible and then setting each smaller […]

My river runs to thee. Blue sea, wilt thou welcome me? My river awaits reply. Oh! sea, look graciously. I’ll fetch thee brooks from spotted nooks. Say, sea, Take me! – Emily Dickenson Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 255 was created with acrylics.
