Monday morning



more pictures from the pavement artist called
Julian Beever


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that somehow, I was able to overcome my usual weekend isolating trend. This was absolutely done by a power greater than myself. I wanted to isolate; I intended to isolate. But I never "got around to it" and was spared. God doing for me what I could not do for myself.

that it works if you work it

for a fine meeting about the connection between being powerless and the need to set personal boundaries (it was an Al-Anon meeting, LOL)


that I got to see our old home; now remodelled and upadated and beautiful

for vivid dreams that aren't nightmares or even bad stories

for the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause and say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hi Dave and thanks for dropping by. That artist is amazing, thanks for sharing the pic. I luv MLK and was thinking that statement re the streetsweeper would be great done as a poster in my front hall. I'll have to check the net to see if someone sells that kinda thing. thanks for inspiring me (and yes feel free to link and I'll do the same if I may.)
