Seaside Saturday: Images of the Maine Coast ~ Jan. 29th

I decided to try something new, which I'm calling Seaside Saturday. On Saturdays, I'll post images of the Maine Coast. This week, I turned to my archives for these photos of Reid State Park in Georgetown, Maine, which I took last winter. As you can clearly see, Maine is beautiful in every season!

Darkness cannot drive out darkness -- Martin Luther King, Jr. ~ January 17th

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Remembering the great civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., today and asking you to consider this:

If you love one person today, you'll have made the world a better place. You can love one person, can't you?

My tree of words for 2011 ~ January 8th

I had a little New Year’s Eve gathering at my house this year, and I did something different for a table decoration: I made a tree of words for 2011. To make it, I gathered branches in my yard and then attached paper leaves. Each leaf hides a word. Now every visitor to my house gets to choose a leaf so they can discover their word for 2011.

My word is ...

I was rather surprised to receive this word, since for quite some time, I have been on a bit of a hiatus from dating. Well, maybe 2011 is the year I will meet someone special. We will just have to wait and see. One of my friends got contemplation. Another one got optimism. I asked them if they were happy with their words, and they said they were. I would have let them choose again if they wanted to, but they declined. Do you have a word for the New Year? If not, I’d be happy to choose one for you from my little tree. Just let me know.
