What He Carries In His Heart

“A man sees in the world 
what he carries in his heart.” 
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust

This morning I got this above shot walking Kolo in the sunrise. As usual, she is camera shy. (She learned that from Clapton, turning her head when I point the camera at her.) 

My camera shy sweetheart

Diamond Dust

"Adversity is the diamond dust 
heaven polishes its jewels with."
~ Robert Leighton

A bit of snow dust and golden light. Diamond thoughts, crystal feelings.

"An artist observes, selects, 
guesses, and synthesizes."
~ Anton Chekhov

Back home after a week on the road. Traveled over 1200 miles by car and heart. Visited Atlanta, Memphis, Little Rock, and Nashville. I had a wonderful time, but it is good to be home.

Blessed By the Sky

Happy New Year.
Aloha, like clean white snow,
glitters in my heart.

Shade and Perspective

"There is nothing ugly; 
I never saw an ugly thing in my life: 
for let the form of an object be what it may light, 
shade and perspective will always make it beautiful."
~ John Constable

Life brings ugliness, but I never think "ugly" when I look up at the morning sky. 

It is true, if you look for the light, shade, and perspective, no object will be ugly.

A Song A Day

Happy Birthday Susi!
"A song a day keeps the blues away."
~ Edward Hays

This morning I listened to music as I prayed. You can't feel blue for long, listening to music and watching the sky.

The morning sky is surreal in its colors and light. Thank you for this morning and this opportunity to share this morning. I am so grateful for this sky, this life.
