2 Aug 2018 – I decided to play with circles and color. After I finished this I decided it was like the Earth. The basic elements of life in the middle and then BOOM confetti in all different shapes, sizes and colors.
2 Aug 2018 – I’m so grateful to the recent influx of chalk from my mother-in-law. More vibrant and contrasting colors to work with!
2 Aug 2018 – MERMAN!
3 Aug 2018 – I have a little pecan tree growing on the other side of this picture. It makes it difficult to take pictures. This one has been adjusted. This is me playing with circles and color again – kind of like making a coloring book of my own.

Hello! It’s Friday, almost lunchtime as I write to you. How are you? I hope your answer is truthful. That’s easy for me to say because I’m not there to hear your answer!
How many times has someone asked you how you are doing and you’ve said, “ohhh just fine!” and you didn’t mean it? I have done that countless times because if I were to be honest and truly share what was going on, it would probably be too much for such a casual interaction.
We ask people these questions but more times than not we are not prepared to deal with the full weight of an honest answer. We will walk away real quickly after asking the question to avoid hearing the response. We even tend to shy away from people we know are going to give honest answers because it’s just too much to take in or we just don’t want to hear it. I wish more people could be honest with someone even if that means paying for a therapist or some sort of counseling.
From what I’ve noticed in this world, sometimes a person just needs someone to really talk to about unpleasant things going on in their lives without fear of being judged or ridiculed.
