Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #814 – Black dog = Blue monster


“The only reason you are alive is that far more has

gone right for you than has gone wrong. Your dreams

are for your joy; even if they lie crushed on the ground,

you need not make them responsible for misery. If you

raise your eyes from the shards you’ll find more dreams

all around, and many of them can come true.”

Enjoyment is in the Waiting…Insight From Martha

Rest in peace my fellow flyer, no more black dog after you.

Hope you get a seat up front.

I am lifted that at least I know money and fame are not the answer.

Sadden by our lost.

Prayers to Robin Williams wife, family, close friends and those who knew but couldn’t help.

IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #589 – some days your blooms wither and you recede to the corner

The last time we were in New Mexico, we found this bloom radiant, full of life and beauty. This trip it was withdrawn, subcoming to the cooler evenings. A cool has blown in here today and I much like the bloom have withered somewhat and am shrinking into myself and seeking a corner in hopes of finding  protection from the coming change.

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
I know this, but I sometimes get so green with envy over all of those who do not have the “black dog” that follows me.  No matter how many times you throw rocks, yell, scream, pray, meditate and medicate he only goes a short distance away. He hangs in the shadows and returns to bite your butt when you least expect it.

There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds. ††† en theos jim work
