Time Flies

Floating on through the first week of October…where does the time go?!

A few more journal pages to share…this is where my heart is right now…giving me so much joy--gluing, painting, doodling—and learning from the lovely thoughts of those much wiser than I am…

Have you ever wondered how many sayings of Benjamin Franklin’s we use on a regular basis?  I think I’ll look into that.  One smart gentleman, that Mr. Franklin!

And this one…gives me lots of peace.  As I worked on it, I kept hearing the beautiful Shaker hymn in my head:  “Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free…”.

I couldn’t agree more.  Life gets pretty complicated and messy these days, doesn’t it?  Maybe time to slow down a little bit…

And one last HURRAH for summer…I love this faceless little girl—pieced together with lovely collage bits…It was a VERY good summer…

Hope you’re enjoying your moments…they fly away much too quickly…Take some time to do the things that bring you joy….
