Today’s quote really doesn’t need much introduction. I think it really does speak for itself. It’s message is bold and open.
To make bread or love, to dig in the earth, to feed an animal or cook for a stranger — these activities require no extensive commentary, no lucid theology. All they require is someone willing to bend, reach, chop, stir. Most of these tasks are so full of pleasure that there is no need to complicate things by calling them holy. And yet these are the same activities that change lives, sometimes all at once and sometimes more slowly, the way dripping water changes stone. In a world where faith is often construed as a way of thinking, bodily practices remind the willing that faith is a way of life. – Barbara Brown Taylor
I got stuck in an elevator today at work. I had just left for the day and was on my way out the door. While sitting there, I realized this was pretty cool and thought it was good to use real life for my “art,” so, here’s today’s photo.
A great photo from a recent trip I took. I never hesitate to look out the window whenever possible on a plane it’s still surreal to look out and watch the world spin by.
I took a day trip to Mt. Hood. Which, is one of the reasons I love Portland so much. You can, quite literally, drive from Mountain range to Seashore in a couple hours. Ski and surf? Why not. 🙂 At one of the lakes near the base of Mt. Hood I took this photo from the car. Thought it made a great photo.
Today’s photo comes from inside Northeast Portland. This park, which is in a roundabout in NE Portland, on Glisan and 39th avenue. Recently some vandals gave Joan a crown and her horse a unicorn horn. That act of mythological defiance took 3 days to repair. I wish people would leave things alone!
Still, I dedicate today’s photo to my friends @PaceSmith and @Kyeli for following their hearts and embarking on a new journey and following their dreams.
…Or “This is a really big blue marble…” Either way, I really liked this photo and thought it was cool do to something special with it.
Today’s photo and accompanying text are somewhat brief as I am traveling today. Making my way from Portland, Oregon to Lana’i, Hawai’i. So, it might be wise to prepare yourselves to see some beautiful tropical photos. Until then, a moment of reflection.
