Plastic Easter

The books say that the resurrection of Christ is an event that has come down to modern society over a two millennium time span. What do we have to show for it? How is our collective faith expressed in contemporary culture? Does everything come back to oil? I mean after all, plastic is a hydrocarbon product and perhaps the plastic Easter Egg is simply our own exercise in irony... for what it is worth.

B - Day Photos

I had a great birthday with a German Chocolate Cake finale, remembering what my Mom always did for my birthday (it usually rained) thanks to Lynne's cooking skills!

I'm not exactly sure what the metaphor is for these photos, but tracks are something left behind that is evidence or an imprint of what passed, and a sunset is just a a sunset. I won't comment on that as a metaphor, but it is obvious isn't it?

Spring Blossoms

The Amaryllis in the house is blossoming, and I'm not sure exactly where it came from, but it has been here awhile and has a "history" from or around this family. I read a biography of Georgia O'Keeffe this past winter and have a senior student who had never seen O'Keeffe's work and yet peripherally approached its style on her own, and I connected her with the artist just this week. It was so rewarding to see the light come on in her eyes. I know I have mentioned O'Keeffe before in this blog, but I can't help myself.

April Fools!

Yes, and I often am. A number of photos of the storm.
