And the Clouds Say

And the clouds say… “I’m opening a way.” I’ve passed this church for many years but never stopped to take a photo. It wasn’t the right timing. The sky wasn’t there. A cloudy day, just a blue sky — no, it’s not there yet. Patience and timing. A simple analogy…

A Favorite?

People ask me if I have a favorite. Reclined on a leg press machine, angled upward, after several sets I rest my head back, look up, and see the exposed rafter, wooden boards, forming all these crosses. I felt like I was on Candid Camera. Seeing this everyday cross brought…
