Happy Valentines Day

Two Hearts

Two Hearts

Took the bus to the Transit Center on campus. Grabbed a mocha at the coffee shop in the Behavioral Science Building. When they called out my drink they also called out the name of some young lady who order a carmel latte. Her and I were surprised to see a heart on each of our drinks. Showing us some love.

Its Cold This Morning

Frost on my windshield

“Knowledge is learning something every day. Wisdom is letting go of something every day.” Zen Proverb

Frost is on everything. Temperature gauge on my dashboard says 7 degrees  (F). Makes for cold toes. We are expecting similar nighttime lows for the next 5 days. Stay warm!

Two of my dads carvings.

Two of my dads carvings.

This is two of my dads carvings. The first one is two hearts connected at their base and carved from one piece of wood, Birdseye Maple. The carvings in the background are small elephants with intertwined trunks. This is my dads, creative outlet and a great form of therapy.

Just a Baby

A Baby Snowman

A Baby Snowman

I encountered this 6 inch tall snowman last week at campus. Wonder what his name should be and where’s his/her hat?

Have a great week!

Wall Graffiti

Colors and Patterns

Colors and Patterns

This is the side of a metal building someone has painted a mural on. It is massive in size and depicts a couple of hummingbirds that must be 10 feet tall. I am standing along the path leading to the bus stop and can’t step back any further. It was the abstract essence that called me when standing this close. Bright colors!

Watering the Aspens

Watering the Aspens

Watering the Aspens

Elf Lane (also known as “Gnome Road”) is mountain trail in the quaint village of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. The trail is a quarter-mile long between Lake Hiawatha and Lake Apache.

As you enter Elf Lane, there is a sign posted on a tree that reads: “PLEASE Do not take us, Break us, or Relocate us As We Live Here on ELF Lane to Watch over children and All the Little Animals.” As we walked the trail we found ceramic little characters; elves, gnomes, spiders, Elmo, angels, SpongBob, SquarePants, and many more. The little character who caught my eye was busy watering the aspen tree. 🙂
