I want to share three thoughts that I ran across in scanning the blogs of friends today.
"Art and creativity are not about being perfect."
-- by Aileen at Chasing Light (in "Instant Wishes")
"There is a 'reality section' of the crayon box -- burnt umber, raw sienna, tan, mahogany, maize, sepia -- that boys use to color animals and buildings. And there is a 'fantasy section' --magenta, orchid, carnation, periwinkle, thistle, turquoise, mulberry -- that girls use to color fairies, unicorns and princesses."
-- by Randi at Foreign Quang (in "The Bluest Skies You've Ever Seen")
A day to remember.
But the question has become...remember what?
Remember to grab the lifejackets on your way to the lake?
Or remember to stop for flowers on your way to the cemetery.
Remember to get charcoal for the grill?
Or remember to lower your flag to half-mast.
Remember that you signed up to bring the potato salad?
Or remember those who gave their lives so you can live yours.
