Take The Time To Understand


Never mistake knowledge for wisdom.

One helps you make a living,

the other helps you build a life.

Puzzles


When traveling with someone,

take large doses

of patience and tolerance

with your morning coffee.


Helen Hayes


This was my first attempt at a collage puzzle.
Worse for wear sending through the heat of summer.


I will be updating and adding a link to my Etsy shop.
No longer on FB, pass around the link to anyone

Thanks in advance. = Cheers!

State Of The World Today & Mary Delaney Book


Started this book and for anyone interested in
history and art forms, you should seek this out.
And goes to show, it's never too late -

In the late 18th century, the twice-­widowed Mary Delany
created nearly a thousand breathtakingly beautiful
and intricate paper “mosaicks” of flowers.
Glued onto black backgrounds,
they were not only stunning but also botanically precise.
Mrs. D., as her latest biographer, the poet Molly Peacock,
sometimes calls her, began this project in her early 70s
and only stopped roughly 10 years later, in 1783,
when her eyesight declined.
Today the collages reside in the British Museum.

Sometimes



 Are we sure it is desirable
for a man's spirit not to be at war with itself,
or that it is better to be serene
 and ready to go to dinner
than to be excited and unwilling
to stop for a cup of coffee, even?

Little Boxes


Too many times in life, people tend
to put others in a little box,
as if we all fit neatly somewhere -

After all these years,
I'm able to accept the
fact I am different,
embrace it,
and not worry anymore
about whether I do
or don't fit in any box -

That's what this one
was made for this past week -

1K Coffee Company Sierra Madre Blend


"Dinsdale, he was a nice boy -

He nailed my head to a coffee table."

Monty Python



We recently ran across this brand of
coffee in a local store.

It was ground, and Best By date
was 5/17 -

Ran a cold press and tried this morning -

Smooth, fruity and no after taste.

If you ever see the 1K brand, you
might want to give it a try.
