So it’s been a busy time already. People are using the year 2020 to express their hopes this year will be filled with 20/20 Vision plans: where people can get back on track and have a real vision for their future. Continue reading “One Month Down Eleven To Go!”
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is amazing how I can go through a year being busy, being frustrated, being excited, being tired…and not take a moment to sit quietly and express any gratitude for the time I share with others. Continue reading “Adventure Gratitude Moment”
It’s been a few weeks since my last writing. Life has a way of interrupting the best of intentions. Between illnesses, hospital visits, trips, travails, time with friends & family, and other events, time slipped away between posts. I have started a couple but they are waiting for my “final” thoughts to wrap them up…that or no thoughts and a full closure (hmmm, another life metaphor?).
The thermometer read over 90 dF so what was the brilliant plan for an adventure day? Miniature golf, of course! Out under the blazing blue sky of North Carolina sans any wind is perfect for standing still and just putting a round or two of golf, right? Continue reading “Landing in Adventure”
This was a busy week. We managed to enact a bunch of verbs: climbing, fishing, casting, spinning, swinging, acting, singing, dancing, playing, riding, casting and teaching to mention a few. Continue reading “The Verbs”

So here are several brief adventure highlights, comments and tips (making it a really long writing!) without any attraction note summaries but perhaps with some typos 😉 .

Rising early this morning, I was getting ready to start writing …about what I was not sure. With my coffee in hand and computer in lap it occurred to me that I had not written about our most recent adventure! And I bet you cannot guess from the title what that adventure entailed.
In an earlier epistle I commented that sometimes a picture could be enhanced by words. I then blithely went on to talk about how to make a picture or combination of pictures speak for themselves without words.
Recently I read an article that repeated the saying “A picture is worth a 1,000 words” and I had an “ah-ha!” moment. And that thought was…”sometimes, not all the time, a picture is literally worth a 1,000 word essay”! Whether the essay is an explanation of its environment and setting, or the feelings and emotions felt and depicted in and through the image, there are times when words will add another layer of color and hue to it.
