I Write

Lamy Logos

Lamy Logos

“A pen transmits the voice of the soul.” Fennel Hudson

I now have two Lamy Logos. One is a pearl color and the other is twilight. I have a deep blue ink in the pearl Logo and a black/brown ink in the twilight Logo.  

I enjoy going to coffee shops but it’s not just for coffee. These small shops are an extended family. A connection can be make with the baristas and many of the regulars. We get to know one another, the good things in life and the hard stuff we deal with. I come to watch people and to meet total strangers, who sometimes become friends. I come here to write in my journal about what I see, feel and what I dream. I sip on my mocha, a dark brew, a tea and every so often a chai. I write. I’m happy.

Strange to be back in class

Shadows on Campus

Shadows on Campus

I have been spending more time on campus since I began auditing a new class call Spiritual Deminsion of Human Life. I have a friend who is a professor at CSU and has invited me to sit in on this new class. Strange to take a seat in a college classroom after 25 years. 

They have a program for the seniors where at the discretion of the instructor, seniors 55 years of age or older may attend any University class as a visitor without formal registration, provided on campus classroom space is available and it’s free. I can do homework but do not turn it in, nor do I take any quizzes of finals. I’ve found it fun.

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

Storm Clouds Along the Colorado Front Range

We have had cloudy and cooler weather for the past few days, seeing less of our Colorado sunshine. This past Saturday was a day for lovely clouds and not just a gray sky. I have taken several images from this location and always include the trees.

Being Present

Shadows of students waiting at the bus stop

Being present is about living where I’m at in my own shoes. I cannot live in the past or future. Being present is being awake. Acceptance. I’ve heard it said,  “Reality is only experienced when we live life in the present.” May I live today in the present!
