365 Things That Inspire Me

I also do posts for my clay group, beads-of-clay.org. Twice now, I have posted pictures that I took on walks with my dogs in a park near here, 3 Creeks. I post these as creative inspiration for my fellow artists and jewelry designers. These posts have been so well received that I decided to start a blog with daily inspiration in the form of pictures, quotes and poems. These pictures will be things from my immediate environment that I find inspirational or beautiful; textures, colors, contrasts, animals, unusual things, intriguing things. A daily dose of wonder....

"Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things."

"Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush is afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes."
E.B. Browning

It's all for Joy!

Sept 13 2010 This Prairie Land

This Prairie Land

this prairie land echoes
with the ghosts of 
wagon trains;
calico dresses
long and plain;
pioneers on rutted roads
with work worn hands
and heavy loads;

this verdant land echoes
with the sound
of dusty boots on hardened ground;
fireside songs by blackened kettles
odes to courage, strength and mettle;

this prairie land.
