Diane is so, soooo talented. A little nudge from her got me going....thinking...
where "have" I been???
I had to chuckle, as I had no idea how to answer.
I have not posted as much as I used to,,, not even inspired to create.
I am not going to over analyze it, but, just reconnect with my muse.
Thank You Diane.
I am sending you a big southern hugggg from an out of place, fellow Yankee.
I had the good fortune to find a book from 1960 that teaches Braille. It captured me, and for the three dollars, well, wouldn't you get it? It was one of those moments, you know that you know, that you know it's right, and you hold it tight to your chest and feel it means....something good.
The creamy pages, and the millions of thoughts of all the perforations, what it must mean to one who has no sight. It makes me so grateful for the gift of sight, and all my other senses. Helen Keller lost her sight and hearing, and became a remarkable woman that brought courage to millions of blind people. She was born only an hour from here,,,, click here to learn more. I read quite a bit about her, discovered to my disappointment that she was a socialist. Oh well, she did some good. We visited Ivy Green a couple of years ago, it is a very charming place.
I am further inspired to finish the piece in the first photo, and I am exploding with ideas. I have dishes in the sink, and I do not care.
Have a creative weekend to my fellow blogger friends, you do make a difference!
The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing. Albert Einstein
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream -- the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, 'The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.' The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing." --Ronald Reagan
