Leap of Faith…..

We are each responsible for training our eyes to ‘look past’–past the exterior, past perceived imperfections, past race, color, and creed. To see the universal spirit within rather than the separate flesh. Until we learn to do that, we’re destined to butt heads with anyone who doesn’t mesh with our established comfort level. Love waits on the other side of fear; take a leap of faith….

I’ll Be The First To Admit…..

….that I don’t know a lot about the way a computer works. Most of the time, I just hope it does. And when it doesn’t, my first reaction is usually blind panic–my life is inside that machine!

Over the past three weeks I had to take the computer in to have a power source replaced…and I was without it for a week while the part was ordered, the Columbus Day holiday delayed receiving it, and finally, getting it back home. When I tried to access my blog, however, I found myself unable to access my dashboard functions, couldn’t write a new post. I was treated like any other visitor to my page and invited [via a blue-flag that popped up in the lower right corner] to become a follower. Not exactly what I was aiming for! Obviously, I overcame the obstacle. That I did so without having to call our local computer guru [again] is a source of some pride….although I did ask a trusted friend’s opinion. And….since I sort of blundered into the solution, it remains to be seen if I can duplicate my success. Stay tuned….

Meanwhile, I leave you with this image of a yard windmill, shot in September (this year) while visiting my sister in Cedarburg, WI, for their annual Wine and Harvest Festival. I have a small windmill in the yard here at home–this one was a monster! As was the price tag: $1,200, generously reduced to $500 in hopes of a quick sale. Assuming I’d wanted it badly enough to pay that amount, the next problem would have been getting it back to Iowa. I don’t think it would have fit in our Jeep!

I hope this latest post finds you all well, and busily perfecting your various crafts. I look forward to catching up!
