“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.     The University observes Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so I was out of the office with a lot of things to get done. First on the list was car repair at Lowell’s downtown. Stacy and I had a great breakfast at Lexington Diner, then we joined the MLK March

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” ~ Robert Fulghum   This morning, as the east coast was being buried in the first blizzard of 2018, the Bluegrass got just a dusting,

“There is no greater wealth in this world than peace of mind.” ~ TinyBuddha     With the time change last Sunday I now leave work at dark. I think campus is especially groovy in the early evenings. The buildings have a warm glow about them, and tiny packs of students scurry around me as I walk to the garage. This week, the University is supporting Alzheimer’s awareness by lighting

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.” ~ Martha Graham     The remnants of Hurricane Harvey finally made its way to The Bluegrass.

“Our greatest human adventure is the evolution of consciousness. We are in this life to enlarge the soul, liberate the spirit, and light up the brain.” ~ Tom Robbins     It was a beautiful day in the Bluegrass. Dad and I went to see our Shero at Good Sam. She’s getting good food and continues to improve. Meanwhile, I stopped briefly to enjoy the view from the parking garage.

“In a way life itself tracks a person’s generosity, much like an airline might track frequent flyer miles. The more you give, the more you earn, the higher you fly, and the further you go.” ~ Robin Jackson     Today I did something I’ve never done. I went to a protest march; the Women’s March. I tend to keep my political views to myself. The outhouse provides me a

“Anything that costs you your peace is too expensive.” ~ Unknown     It was Monday. It was a very Monday Monday. It seems it was a very Monday Monday for everyone I talked to. Mercury doesn’t even turn retrograde until tomorrow, yet everybody around me experienced technical difficulties. Plus,¬†communications were just horrid today. In short, it was an unusually exhausting Monday Monday. And then I walked to the parking

“Don’t underestimate the healing power of these three things: music, the ocean, and the stars.” ~ Tiny Buddha     I took this shot several weeks ago when Judy Sackett and I went downtown to pickup the visitor information for our IFLA guests. We’d just gotten in her SUV when the skies opened up. IT made for a pretty view over the old rooftops. Today, it rained all around me,

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” ~ Lewis Carroll     The moment we Absolutely Fabulous fans have been waiting for had finally arrived. Opening night was a must for this AbFab fan. Stacy Yelton and Annie Bassoni posed with the marquee before the viewing. As you can see, they were in prime form for the big reveal.¬†We were later joined by Joy

“I’ve got too much to do to wait on someone to turn the light on my path.” ~ T. D. Jakes   I heard a story some years ago that three houses by Gratz Park were built for three sisters. I snapped a pic of these three houses on Saturday believing them to be the houses in question. I did some sleuthing, and sure enough, I was right. These are
