Never did get the hang of Thursdays

(iPhone photo #40 in my 2012 365+1 project) I’m sure there will come a day in the not too distant future when I will have to work a little harder to come up with a photo of the day. I quit trying to do the photo challenges and decided just to go with found photo-worthy […]

Long Day’s Journey

(iPhone photo #39 in my 2012 365+1 project) I was too busy doing things I had to do and showing up places I had to show up to accomplish anything today. No exercise other than scurrying about feeling put upon. It’s probably for the best. I needed to give the blisters on my feet some […]

Soar if you dare

(iPhone photo #38 in my 2012 365+1 project) Perhaps I should say soar at your own peril. I keep trying to soar, but I more often just crash into stuff. I have nothing but blisters to report today. Yesterday I walked four miles after walking six miles the day before. I noticed a blister on […]

The Best Trail

(iPhone photo #37 in my 2012 365+1 project) I always think it’s not worth doing if it’s not worth overdoing. When I decided I wanted to get in shape, I couldn’t just start exercising more. I had to have an extraordinary goal. For me, extraordinary is the idea that I could get myself into shape […]

May we run and not be weary

(iPhone photo #36 in my 2012 365+1 project) But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ~Isaiah 40:31 This was the scripture at UBC this morning, and I decided to […]

All in a Day’s Avoidance

(iPhone photo #35 in my 2012 365+1 project) I’m a little worried about the blueberries blooming in February. I’m afraid they’ve been fooled into believing we aren’t going to have winter this year. Maybe they’re right. Maybe we have already shifted into spring, but that’s another kind of scary altogether. Poor little berry bushes. I […]


(iPhone photo #34 in my 2012 365+1 project) I showed up everywhere I was supposed to be today, and I didn’t run screaming from any room I was supposed to be in. For a Friday at the end of a long week, we’ll call that a success. I didn’t do a single thing toward accomplishing […]

Everything has a price

(iPhone photo #33 in my 2012 365+1 project) I spotted this tulip tree on my walk today. They are in full bloom now and quite beautiful. I’m doing better this week with the walking — at least I will be doing better if I manage to keep it up for the next few days. It’s […]

Conflict of Interest

(iPhone photo #32 in my 2012 365+1 project) I think the photo speaks for itself this time. I have no particular resolve toward anything today. Only two more days until the weekend, and after that, there will only be six weeks until spring break.
