Coming Out of the Fog

You know when you’ve turned the corner on a cold, when the fog in your brain begins to lift and you feel more human than zombie.  At least that’s how it works with me.  Today seemed to be just such a day – it always comes nearly a week after the cold strikes, which would […]

Where Life Takes You

You’d think that if you were to encounter unusual events that such things would occur on a Monday or a weekend day, say Friday or at the very least on Saturday.  I mean, “unusual” screams something out of the ordinary and well, most weekdays are fairly ordinary, in and of themselves, except for Mondays on […]

The Gardens (Infrared)

  I have this perception, which I’m not sure is entirely true or not, that most people prefer color over black and white because it most resembles reality.  There is the need and desire then to see reality at its best – full of color, so much so that it’s dazzling, highly saturated.  When looking […]

The Gardens (Color)

Months ago, my small group from church and I decided to visit the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park today – not knowing what the weather would be like.  We had to revamp our plans for Picnic Pops because it was too hot & humid (in July) to attend.  Who would have thought that after […]

Why Is It?

Why is it that to call a woman skinny is to pay her a compliment but to do so to a man can come across as an insult?   Why is it that being real with one another brings along with it the fear of rejection rather than the hope of acceptance?   Why is […]

Reworking the Work Room II

I returned to my organizing-the-work-room project tonight.  With the other room organized, it didn’t seem as daunting, because I could now move stuff into there – into predetermined spaces.  My work room was basically in need of having everything sorted – as in, sand paper and sanding blocks put away, cans of paint – label […]

Reworking the Work Room

With the weather forecast predicting cooler weather for this weekend, I decided that it was high time I got around to doing some outside projects, like painting.  First up is the threshold of my sunroom.  Made out of wood, it gets roughed up by the door and tread of shoes and needs to be repainted […]

A Dilemma

So, I’ve done it.  I’ve finished reading the first book in my collection of unread books.  It was my first reading of Asimov and, while I was right – his writing is heavy on the science – it wasn’t entirely as dry and unlikeable as I feared.  As it turns out, the book was about […]

Sweet Dreams

I woke up yesterday morning realizing that I had dreamed of eating sweets ALL night long.  We’re talking cupcakes, coffee cake and so on.  I could actually taste the sweetness of them – the frosting, the fillings … yum.  When I looked up what it meant I read that I was savoring life and enjoying […]

Profiles

In coming up with content for our digital signage system at work, we’ve taken to featuring profiles of employees to help us all get to know one another better.  I was just asked today to have my profile featured on the system.  Being the “administrator” for the entire system, I wondered if it would come […]
