Inspiration

I happily reblog this post from my friend Mary’s blog, Walking My Path. I love the photo and the quote from Chief Dan George that accompanies it. I want to keep this quote handy especially for those times when life is not so gentle with me when I need something uplifting.

Check out the rest of Mary’s blog. It is a thing of beauty and of quiet inspiration.

Anne Lamott (Author) Writes Down Every Single Thing She Knows, As of Today

I am re-blogging this absolutely wonderful post by the author Anne Lamotte. I can’t quite believe that this is every single things she knows, but I agree with almost every one of the truths she speaks herein. I have no knowledge of whether #7 is true or not, but other than that I think she is spot-on.

61st birthdayI am going to be 61 years old in 48 hours. Wow. I thought i was only forty-seven, but looking over the paperwork, I see that I was born in 1954.

My inside self does not have an age, although can’t help mentioning as an aside that it might have been useful had I not followed the Skin Care rules of the sixties, ie to get as much sun as possible, while slathered in baby oil. (My sober friend Paul O said, at eighty, that he felt like a young man who had something wrong with him.).

Anyway, I thought I might take the opportunity to write down every single thing I know, as of today.

1. All truth is a paradox. Life is a precious unfathomably beautiful gift; and it is impossible here, on the incarnational side of things. It has been a very bad match for those of…

WOW!

Check out the link on this post that I proudly re-blog from Making It Write. The setting of the video happens to be northern New Mexico which is near and dear to my heart. But the glory is in what this artist does, not in the location. Truly amazing.

Lisa’s One Word Challenge

BeFunky_hills.jpg

I found a link to a video about a man who, for 25 years, has been digging beautiful caves in sandstone hills.  Although the creator of these monumental works of art didn’t mention the word ‘love’, I am sure that love is what drives him  – it certainly isn’t money, as he only charges $12 an hour.

The images of these caves filled me with wonder, and with love, and that is why I have chosen it as this months post for Lisa’s One Word Challenge.

It must be an a moving and unforgettable experience to stand in one of his monumental, sculptured constructions.

Nothing more needs to be said, as the caverns and walls speak for themselves.

This is the link.
