I never saw this word before, but Lani Gerity made a post about the definition on Facebook. It inspired me to create this digital collage. The digital elements are from kits by Foxy Squirrel and Lynne Anzelc.

Digital Whisper Dreamers' Challenge - Gypsy

The theme for this week's challenge made me think of a digital collage I created several years ago. It was published in Artella magazine. The poem was written by a woman who called herself "Bobute." She identified herself as being part gypsy. I liked the poem so much that I had to create a collage with it.

Flowers - Father's Funeral

I can only think of a couple of "nice" things that happen at funerals. My father's funeral was this past Saturday April 22. He would have turned 88 on the 28 th. of this month. As difficult as it is to say goodbye to loved ones, it is nice to see friends and family that you haven't visited with in too long of a time. It reaffirms friendships and family relationships.

I'm not sure where the custom of sending flowers came from, but it is always nice to see the beautiful flowers. Maybe they serve as a reminder that for the rest of us, life goes on along with all it entails. I took a picture of the arrangement my wife had made to serve as a reminder of that day.

Brain Food

It has felt like my brain hasn't been working right for months. I wonder if it's old age? Yikes! Anyway, they say creating something helps your brain.

Father Passed

My father passed away earlier this morning. He would have turned 88 in just a couple of weeks. He suffered from dementia, and had a heart attack last week. I'm so glad he can be at peace now. Living in a nursing home was barely a life at all.

The Snowdrops Are Open

It shouldn't be 68 degrees in the middle of February here in Michigan. The snowdrops are happy, though, and their blooms have opened.

Hope For Spring :-)

I take a picture every year when our snowdrops first begin to bloom. They're proof that there is hope spring is actually going to come.

Art Journal Emporium Jan. 2017 - Kairos

When an artist is so engrossed in his work that time has no meaning, he is then working in kairos time. Time feels like it is infinite. There is only the present moment.

Marney Makridakis discusses the difference between kronos (linear) and kairos (non-linear) time in her book Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life. It is a fascinating read. :-)
