Pondering tolerance

It seems to be in short supply these days.

That’s too bad. There is not a single one of us that can’t use more.

For us and

From us.

Less righteousness, more tolerance would make everyone’s life a little nicer.

Do your part for global mental hygiene

The sun rose orange

1000 have died in floods this summer in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Who knows how Houston will recover, I mean the poor not the rich. Who gives a crap what ethnicity is helping what ethnicity there?

Wild fires are searing Canada and the western United States. Our sun is apocalyptic orange due to the smoke.

It is the responsibility of everyone to stop being part of the problem. At least stop using devisive words. Remove “Snowflake” and “Trumper” from your vocabulary.

If we all put as much effort into helping instead of hating, life would get a lot better for a whole lot of people.

Including us

Reinvest your energy.

Adversity = Gratitude

It's been a tough summer

It rained through most of June.

There has been a multitude of "stuff"
Lots of little stuff
One or two big stuffs

But I know the best way out from under "stuff" is with gratitude
For sunshine ☀️, thank you for finally getting here.
For all the two legged and four legged beings
that care about me.
And of course grateful for Boysenberries
And sunflowers

Choices 

This is so much truer than I ever thought.

Life can change in the blink of an eye.

Good choices

Bad choices 

Unexpected happenstances 

Or just choosing to change the lens you view the world through.

Today, I’m choosing a farm ripened organic strawberry len

They call it summer love 

Honor beings


Walking to work there was a tiny dead baby mouse on the parking lot


The tiny mouse on the hard black top tugged at me and I was compelled to snap a photo.  Knowing she would feed some other hungry baby I left the mouse there. 

After sketching her, the art looked so bleak and for days it bothered me. So I changed the story and gave her an umbrella of flowers to rest under. 

Hopefully I do the same in life. 

Protect 

Nourish 

Give people a place to rest, or a strong shoulder to lean on

Hopefully 

Forgive 


We are so busy forgiving everyone for everything.

Are we remembering to forgive ourselves?

Especially for things we didn’t know we didn’t know?

Happy Solstice 

Dad?


This fresh strawberry crumble is for all the single moms on Fathers Day. 

My boys will tell you I was probably a better dad than I was a mom, 

Thanks guys

Persevere 


My husband died of a brain tumor 19 years ago. This was one of his favorite sayings. 

When I feel as though I’m in a slog-fest with bits, pieces or the entire world I remember this…. and him
