One-Liner Wednesday: Sunshine

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.”  ~ Helen Keller ~ There’s no better way to start a Wednesday than with your face in the sun. If you can’t see the sun today due to clouds or rain, feel free to stare at the happy little sun on your computer screen. Sunshine is positivity and light! It brightens the spirit and produces smiles. It gives warmth in the summer and hope during winter months. SunshineRead more

Dude on a Bike & #WATWB

On the bike, waiting for the traffic light to change… Me: Nice day for a bike ride. Dude on a Bike: Every day is a nice day for a bike ride. Me: Yes, I suppose…unless it’s snowing.

Me: Do you have a fatRead more

Nope, nothing does…

Absolutely correct! The dedicated bench in this photo is at the southern end of the Wiouwash State Trail, which runs from Oshkosh to Hortonville, WI. I couldn’t find any information about Michael McCoy, what kind of person he was, but obviously he loved biking for much of his life. This past Mother’s Day, after spending some time with mom, I took the bike and myself to the trail and spent a couple of hours with a blue sky, sun, andRead more

Vertical Light

Prone, face up, on the foam roller I lay. Assessing trigger point soreness, tired from a chilled winter’s day. Past rising shadowed wall, as I veer forty-five to the right, beyond the row of three switches the eyes grasp slim, vertical light. A photo op presents, In almost black and blatant white, with clever shades of gray. Not fifty, but a few of routine rite. To the left I roll and find the floor, stretching for the electronic brick.

Broken Light

He looks into the broken light. In search of full sun. “Those damn blinds,” he moans. They are not much fun. The plastic, rectangular pieces create broken, rectangular rays. He is not the least bit amused. “Please raise the blinds,” he prays. Mistress whips out her camera and pays no heed. What a beautiful day, beautiful boy. “Raise the blinds you say? There is no need.” He looks again into the broken light, knowing she is about to depart. “Those damnRead more

Who doesn’t want to know that we notice them and value them? And who might respond to us better when they feel that they matter? It probably cannot be overstated – it matters…that people matter. ~Steve Goodier~ This past Saturday was a day that mattered for other people. People that I didn’t know. It was a day when a small church community came together to show how love is given freely to others, no matter their life’s circumstances, their outward appearance,Read more

Water & Light

“This week, let’s play with light! Show us what refraction means to you.” Man, sub-creator, the refracted light through whom is splintered from a single white to many hues, and endlessly combined in living shapes that move from mind to mind. ~J.R.R. Tolkien~Read more
