We don’t use them much anymore, now that most of us aren’t farmers or mariners, but weathervanes still grace our world and add some whimsy. Whichever direction, smile and enjoy!
When I need a quiet place just to think and reflect, I find myself drawn to the beauty and peace of a cemetery. Far from being spooky, I find them places of beautiful sculpture that I find calming. In our older cemeteries, they are filled with the names of people no one now remembers or even knew. But I know they too had their struggles, hope, dreams, and challenges. This is a reminder to me that whatever is bothering me will eventually pass. Life goes on for me, for now. And I must seize the moments I have.
Driving the Las Vegas strip is an interesting trip in time. The southern portion is modern, sleek and glossy. Going north shows the older, more seedy, part. It is surprising how much of the old strip was still there and in need of repair (or demolition!). And, there was still the abundance of wedding chapels. It’s a fascinating place!
Unconcerned about status and standing.
Being an “only child” brings a peace and security,
with no worries about power and prestige.
Playful, happy dog. A gift of time to indulge.
