Greener New Shoots

We head into warmer weather season. 

Heard around the neighborhood are the sounds of whirring lawn mowers, and buzzing of weed whackers as people work to freshen up their yards in anticipation of grilling outside, parties in the sunshine, and enjoying the warm weather. 

Preening. Pruning.  Brushing away the browned and decayed plants for greener new shoots  to flourish.

Where in my mind, do I need clearing?

What is working and what is no longer working?

What thoughts do I need to brush away to allow my minds new greener shoots to stretch up and grow?

Soldier Portraits
Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
