It’s Very Exciting, This Lack of Logic

Well, I sang a new song coming home to my two focal verses this week.  It being a rainey day, not having not much to do and a hankering to sit down and see if I could peck it out, I did. 

The second time through, with nothing much to do, not having a shower, put in my contacts, fixed my hair beyond the “to school” once over, and having put on negligable makeup, I was compelled by some force outside of human logic to video tape this endeavor for you. 

Then, having realized how boring it was, I gave myself a shot at trying to edit-merge the “two takes” I taped on my digital still camera (which happens to record about five minutes of video on a good day).  The battery went dead after that, so I stopped. 

I would have, or perhaps, should have, stopped after the first time through the piano was so out of tune, but the first time, I realized I had aimed the camera off center cut off my entire head, which seemed worse than no eye makeup to me at the time.  Don’t ask me why.  It is “lack of logic” day.

Again, not having bathed today, or put on make-up, I decided to write my first public song, make a makeshift video to try to make it less boring, and share it with you.  Did I mention that my voice is not what you would call “a trained professional voice”.  Um.  No.  I would be a siesta worshipper, just like you.  They sometime give me a mic to keep me humble.  It works out nicely.

Now that you are teeming with excitement and anticipation, it will be forthcoming. 

Try not to chew through your pencil eraser waiting…those things cost money.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
