dan gogh?

This is one of many pictures that Dan has made at school. Most of the large ones are hung in my laundry room for a wall of artwork. I liked this one as I thought the colors were good and that he used different shading to show the depth.

All of a sudden I'm hungry for a piece of cake. :)

Would you sell the shirt off your back just to get what you need?
Before we go any further, would you do it if I ask?

Would you rob my heart to soften yours?
Lighten my load while securing yours??

Watching it scatter in the daze of love

Hanging on tight
Gaining my strength
Smiling in the process

Dan's New Kayak

I am just as excited as Dan in him getting his new kayak. He made this purchase last month in January after saving money for a couple of years. We paddled out on the lake last week when the weather was nice and the sun shinning. I also signed up for another week long trip with him this summer. We will do both the rivers and lakes this year and hopefully make a trip to the ocean for some sea kayaking. It's great to see him enjoying one of my passions in life. :)

Although the controversy has died down about this author, I thought I would write about these books.

I had read both back in the fall before all the hoopla started. I was enthralled with Million Little Pieces and couldn't put it down. I found it to be an encouraging book with great meaning. As I was reading it, I did think that he was so far gone in the drug and alcohol world that he couldn't have remembered everything exactly. That was OK for me, because the meaning that I got out of the book was more important. It was different than any book I had read before, and I liked that also. My Friend Leonard was also a good follow up.

We will be reading Million Little Pieces at my suggestion, for our book club in the next coming months. I can't wait to hear the controversy and should prove to be good discussions. :)
