The Skies


Swinging SwingingSkies

If the sight of blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive.

New Year, New Goals



I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches.

294 to 40: Joyful Noise!

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!

Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

~ Psalm 100

295 to 40: Tooth Fairies


Dear Tooth Fairy,

if only you were real I would bee so [happier] to you Mom and Dad



We’ve got two little teeth hereabouts that have not been claimed by the fairies, and after a dental visit at school this week, Miss Esmé put out lots of hints that she’d welcome some tooth-fairy roleplaying by her parents…

298 to 40: The Vote

I voted.  On time.  Read through the long ballot pamphlet and made my choices based on the issues.


Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one's government is not necessarily to secure freedom.

~Friedrich August von Hayek

Hmmm… I feel old.

300 to 40: Grapes

I will love them freely,
for my anger has turned from them.
I will be like the dew to Israel;
he shall blossom like the lily;
he shall take root like the trees of Lebanon;
his shoots shall spread out;
his beauty shall be like the olive,
and his fragrance like Lebanon.
They shall return and dwell beneath my shadow;
they shall flourish like the grain;
they shall blossom like the vine;
their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon.

~Hosea 14:4-7

Concord Grapes

The bumper crop is more than ready for the picking.  Anyone wanna help?
