Time's a tickin'...



Do you ever feel like as time moves you stand still? Like you can be in moments in time as if they are here and now...

Connecting the dots ...

Kelli is visiting Beira, and took some time to find my childhood home. Here's her account of that experience.

"But today’s most incredible accomplishment was finding a friend’s childhood home. She grew up in Mozambique and asked me to try to photograph her old house. With the decaying roads and neighborhoods in mind I wasn’t hopeful, but I told her I would try. She printed off aerial maps of the area and gave me her old address – certainly I’d be able to locate this tiny spot 10,000 miles away between two small landmarks. Right?After showing the maps to our driver and patiently driving and then walking in circles for about 30 minutes, not only did we find the house, we found the family who has been living in it for the last 31 years. The neighbors remembered her. They were surprised and very interested in hearing about the first people to ever come back and photograph the neighborhood. It was surreal. They looked at the Google maps and stared at their homes as seen from space. They couldn’t get over the technology, or that a woman now living in America was looking at them from so far away, wondering about the small cement house she once called home. I can’t wait to share the photos with her when I return." - Kelli

I want to share this with my sisters.

Ways to help Africa, a must see story...


It's about using the money already going to Africa in more efficient ways. I saw this amazing program here.

Africa

Kelli is in Beira. The significance of this is so meaningful to me, that I want to keep it to my self. Ask, and you shall receive, said the Spiritual one.

Food is welcoming

Sisley

I love images of Mediterranean kitchens, where food and cooking are abundant. Where mothers cherish their daughters and heritage is passed down as necessary treasures.

Responsibility comes with power


Emmy Taylor

Harnessed power. Responsible power is sacred. It respects life, and sustains it with tenderness. Lives are shattered when power exists without care. It surfaces in families, groups, and countries, depriving people of the possibility of flourishing lives. I AM MAD.

Kid friendly art in a new Xeriscape garden in the valley. The Chandler Arts Commission engaged Juanita to produce this symbol of water conservation: the water drop.

Endorphin heaven...

Running around from activity to activity, is high inducing. Most of my days are very busy. :-)
That's gentleness.

We be jammin'






Wow.... It was thrilling having been a part of the group that made this happen. My cup is full. The music and dance groups were amazing. The kid jam section was popular. The T-shirts rocked. It was a family affair in so many ways. More later.
