More Worser

'Just when you think it can't get any worse, it can. 

And just when you think it can't get any better, it can.'

--Nicholas Sparks

An old photo, as I'm too tired to go through the effort....

It's been a rough week.   I visited family, to see Mom and

sis as she battles cancer.  She's positive and upbeat, things

seem to be OK for now.

Had lunch with my friend; she had surgery last week to

remove cancerous lymph nodes.  They think they got it all,

but who knows what's going on in these wondrous, marvelous,

miraculous yet vulnerable bodies of ours?

My aunt had a tumor on her bladder removed, and the PET scan

shows not good news.  Fck Cancer!   She's opted for no treatment

as she says "Life's been good" and she's 81, so 3-6 months.


My heart is heavy, it's one of the signs of aging, watching friends

and family go through these crises.

I don't know about you,

but it puts me in a mindset

to get my affairs in order!

Monday Mornin' Sunshine

Monday Mornin' Sunshine

It's a beautiful day, and lucky me, no work!

Just a day off before I start a long stretch,

getting things done before a short but

well-deserved vacation.

Gonna pop up and visit with my mom and sis,

get a feel for how things are *really* going

because I think I get a lot of 'fluff' on the phone.

Very typical in my family.  lol

I don't know what the weather is like where YOU are,

but today, it just might reach 90F.  :)

Hello Spring, Summer's just around the corner!

(and another hat - done and gone!)

Here I am, out in the backyard,

barefoot (and bare nekkid!)

Connecting with Earth makes me

feel that much better.  When I walk

Sadie to the local park, we lay down

in the grass (fully dressed - can't scare the neighbors!)

and I think we both sleep better at night for it!

I don't have much opportunity to 'ground' while

at work, so I carry a couple of stones in my pocket!

I know some people put the "pooh-pooh" on

alternative ideas, but I say "if it feels good, do it!"

Get Creative

Creativity is the way I share my soul

with the world.

-Brene Brown

I started out my evening thinking

I'd just snap a couple of shots

and post something.

I sit down at my computer and start

looking at composition and every now

and then, a whim comes over me to do

a little more with the photo using some

of the creative elements built into my

editor.  Sometimes, the results are lousy

and I scratch it all.

Sometimes, they come out to my liking ---

hopefully to yours as well!

Baby Got Back

Baby Got Back

"I like big butts and I cannot lie ..."

A song by rapper Sir Mix-a-lot

The song has been around for a while

and seems sort of timeless

I looked it up and it was released in 1992.

Yikes!  That was 25 years ago ??????? 

Doesn't seem like it was that long ago --

where does the time go?
