Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #840 – If he Shoe Fits…


Yes, scale is everything. Without my fingers this might appear as a regular shoe. Not one for an athletic GI Joe.

Sometimes we keep trying to squeeze ourselves into a size that does not fit. We have worn a too large or too small size for so long that we think tightness and blisters are the normal course of the day.

Say it ain’t so Joe. Life has to fit just a little better than ill fitting footwear. Either grow to the scale or scale it to fit. Life is not a one size fits all….grow up or grow down but find a custom made fit……monos en theos

Find the right size…†…monos en theos…jim

Images of small things from the biggest county in Texas #552 – Okay it isn’t a little thing, but it was too good to pass up.


You just never know what you will find, right on your back porch.

I had been seeing a multitude of images of the great original Converse “Chucks”. I grew up in Converse All Stars, it was them or PF flyers which never was quite as popular.

A few years ago in a vain attempt to regain my youth, I started buying all color of Chuckies. Women, I understand the shoe thing, I got to where I had 22 pairs of them. Only problem was, my old arthritic body with a low tolerance to pain, just could not handle the lack of orthopedic support. I gave all but a couple of pairs to a local resale shop.

I digress, I had been admiring all these images of Chucks and I thought heck, I should use my remaining pair of Chucks to make an image.

I went to set up my shoes, artfully trying this way and that of an arrangement.  I finally was pleased and went to get my “Kon” to record my image.

When I returned, my Aussie, Clovis had decided my image was too much like everyone elses and that he was going to help me make mine my own. He had curled up on the stoop in front of the shoes. My first inclination was to want to shoo him away. Then I took the time to walk around the scene, realizing, this was what I was being given. Never look a gift dog in the mouth.

I love the “waiting for the master” appeal. Ah the gifts we are given if we just can keep from stumbling over them as obstacles.

Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”…Don Williams, Jr.

Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.”…Erich Fromm

To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping”…Chinese Proverbs

or as Nike used to say,  “JUST DO IT” !!!

For ages with all kinds of deep sayings, man has been speaking of the journey from their heart. Is your journey of the heart? Are you on the right road ? Where is that narrow path and will my wide load make it through ?
