“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt



a good idea


At KHS we saw these sliding walls that house many 2-D artwork that’s not on display. I thought they were an ingenious idea. If I ever get around to remodeling my house I want two or three of these installed in the studio. I’ve got so much work hanging on the walls already (and more that I don’t have room for) that it would be nice to have a place to house them without fear of damage. I love smart discoveries.

mystery mail


A very sweet person sent me a birthday card today. Mind you, my birthday was over six weeks ago, but since I usually say over 50 gets you a whole month of celebration, I reckon they figure 54 deserves two months. I’ll take it.  My sweet person did not add a return address, nor did they sign it. It’s postmarked Cincinnati and that’s my only clue. So, whoever you out there thinking of me, I thank you.

“At the end of it all, when we look back on our lives, we won’t take a mental inventory of the dollars we earned, followers we gained, or items we checked off our to-do list. What we’ll see is a mélange of moments—times when we loved, connected, got outside our comfort zone, and engaged with world with wonder and enthusiasm. These moments generally don’t just fall into our laps. We have to actively create them.” ~ Lori Deschene

The only real problem with the weekend is that two days isn’t enough. Nevertheless, I’ll take it and be grateful for the rest and the chance to cook. There are some things you just can’t cook on a work night, like a roasted chicken. I learned to roast a chicken from Julia Child, and lawdy, it’ll make ya wanna slap your granny it’s so good. It’s not exactly cal-free, but it’s extremely healthy so I’m willing.

signs of spring


In Stacy’s yard stands a single crocus. I’m told it peeps its little head out every year. Always alone. Always strong. Always dependable. Always beautiful. Nature is a glorious thing.

“Forgive yourself for not knowing better at the time. Forgive yourself for giving away your power. Forgive yourself for past behaviors. Forgive yourself for the survival patterns and traits you picked up while enduring trauma. Forgive yourself for being who you needed to be.” ~ Audrey Kitching


one million


Two weeks ago a group of us from work were given a generous tour of the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS). Just before my camera battery died I saw the one millionth Toyota Camry to roll off the assembly line in Georgetown, Kentucky back in 1993. I found the juxtaposition with an old wagon interesting. It was a wonderful tour and KHS is a great resource for our Commonwealth. Toyota hasn’t been too bad for us either.

morning burn


A rare day of sun in Kentucky saw the steam rolling off the monsoon soaked fence. It’s temporarily unnerving to step outside and the entire neighborhood looks like it’s on fire until the reality, and the beauty, sink in. It’s a really pretty sight,

“Humans aren’t as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth. So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were ‘reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.'” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson




Look what showed up in my mailbox today! Tickled me to find it waiting at home. I had so much fun with this bunch of fun-lovin’ hillbillies. I’m really honored they picked me to do their pictures. The photos look really good individually and as a package. And when you open the case and remove the disc? Honey, there’s not a more Debi Horton picture anywhere. It’s all perfect and I’m so happy for Mike. This was an important project for him and I’m glad I could play a small roll.
