Arizona Sunset

                                                          L. Grimley

Seek not peace, yet seek not strife,
But be assured that all will be
As God has set forth for all destiny.
Come not looking for answers smooth
To questions of life as yet unused.
Live each day knowing that when
The time has come for things undone,
That all will unfold and all will be told,
As those of old have seen and spoken
From days long ago.

Sharing with Blue Monday
Here is what I call art photography – a photograph of mine that I have creatively made into an art piece.

Iona Nunnery and St. Ronan’s Chapel

Iona Nunnery is on the Isle of Iona in the Inner Hebrides Islands in Scotland. If you like medieval ruins this one is simply awe-inspiring.  Here are some photographs from my visit.  I also visited the Iona Abbey, but I will save those for another day.

Friday My Town Shootout

Moonlight, flowers and wine

On Drinking Alone by Moonlight

Here are flowers and here is wine,
But where’s a friend with me to join
Hand in hand and heart to heart
In one full cup before we part?

Rather than to drink alone,
I’ll make bold to ask the moon
To condescend to lend her face
The hour and the scene to grace.

Lo, she answers, and she brings
My shadow on her silver wings;
That makes three, and we shall be.
I ween, a merry company

The modest moon declines the cup,
But shadow promptly takes it up,
And when I dance my shadow fleet
Keeps measure with my flying feet.

But though the moon declines to tipple
She dances in yon shining ripple,
And when I sing, my festive song,
The echoes of the moon prolong.

Say, when shall we next meet together?
Surely not in cloudy weather,
For you my boon companions dear
Come only when the sky is clear.”
― Li PoThe Works of Li Po: The Chinese Poet

This poem seems apropo   (no pun intended); DSH (S for sweet) is in the hospital with serious health concerns – prognosis, guarded.  The photo above was taken last month during a full moon.  Guess I’ll have to wait a few more weeks ’til the moon is full again.  But, hey, maybe dear hubby will be home by then. 🙂

 

 

I’m sharing this with Random Heart.  If you look closely there is a heart in one of the open spaces between the clouds.

Orange You Glad It’s Friday! Let’s Have a Paint Party!

I’ve sold quite a few Zazzle.com products with my pomeranian, Sushi, on them. She was my heart of hearts. She’s been gone about five years now but she lives on and is becoming popular around the world with her picture on magnets, keychains and the like.  Thank you Sushi! And for more splashes of orange go to Orange You Glad It’s Friday

For Paint Party Friday and Creative Every Day I have a fast sketch I did a few months ago and a WIP. My refrigerator was driving me crazy with so much junk stuck on the doors so I took everything off and organized and rearranged some of what was there before – and it looks pretty good! One of things I had was a magnetic strip of a bone, heart, and paw. So I took each piece out of the magnetic strip and had this great stencil of a bone, heart and paw! I’m not sure how to proceed from here. Normally, I’d just use some watercolor or acrylic paint but made the mistake of buying an art journal that doesn’t have thick pages and too much paint or water and the pages ripple terribly! So I’ll probably use stamps and tissue.  Are there any suggestions as to a glue that is least likely to ripple the pages?
