Christmas cards



Since Nate hasn't been around much, we thought this picture of him with Dani was probably the best one to use this year!

Orphanage updates: twenty out of the twenty-seven kids have American families pledged to adopt them. Please pray for the Guatemalan legal services to move with all due speed. Once some of the kids have been moved out, the children's home is going to relocate to the mountains of Antigua Guatemala where they've been building a new home (the one they came close to losing in last month's hurricane).

With fewer children to care for and educate, they will be turning their attention to their next mission: taking in HIV positive babies. Please pray for all of them about this change too. Nate is not sure what his niche will be as they shift their focus as a home. Emotionally, this will be a tough direction to go too.

Finally, an easy way to order



I don't know why it took me so long to get around to doing this, because it was really so very very easy! I have finally added an orders page, complete with shopping cart system so that it is now easy to order prints of my photos and collages. At least, of the most requested ones.

I'm happy about the way it's turning out, mostly because it will make things easier on everyone!

Frost at Midnight


Frost at Midnight

#2 in my new series, celebrating the beauty of each season. Do you know how hard it is to find poetry or quotes that have something nice to say about winter?!?

The Frost performs its secret ministry,
Unhelped by any wind. The owlet's cry
Came loud--and hark, again ! loud as before.
The inmates of my cottage, all at rest,
Have left me to that solitude, which suits
Abstruser musings : save that at my side
My cradled infant slumbers peacefully.

~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Delcious autumn!


Delicious autumn!

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
~George Eliot

Dockside


The view from our harbor cruise ship this August. These are actually my favorite little vignettes to shoot ~ the evidence of time and wear. I've been working on recreating the look of old colored linen postcards with these shots.

Buoys


Buoys

This is from last winter's trip to Truro with my book discussion group. Part of my "real job" involves leading three such groups. Hey, I know it's rough, but someone has to do it! Lucky us that one of our members has this great vacation house that she invites us to each year. You can read more about the Truro place here if you think you might want to arrange your own get-away!

I was just discussing with an artist friend yesterday about why it's so hard to call myself an "artist". I have no trouble calling her that ~ she paints big canvases. But I'm likely to tell people that I have a part-time job at the library and that I spend my other half time "doing" art. Why can't I get the words out of my mouth?

Lo and behold, here comes an article from the Creativity Portal on exactly this subject. Remember yesterday's post about setting your mind to see certain things and they will almost magically appear? Cool, huh?
