We had a minor ice storm/snowstorm here today. And it was not nearly so bad as others had it, but it wasn't very good either. When I arrived home tonight, I saw the ice on the trees and it was so pretty. So, after sliding my way home, I found some beauty. At work, we have a number of very talented artists, Kitty and Michele among them. We have put out a calling for artists in the office to bring forth their work to display. A co-worker is a photographer...actually, a number of my co-workers are. He has a picture hanging in a gallery...how exciting is that! I love to look at photographs, it brings me great pleasure. I worked on a picture for Ginger and I was so pleased with the results. I can't wait to see if people respond and to see their works of art. It will be like our own gallery. I see things and want others to see them and to see the beauty that I see...but it is hard. I remember looking at the Grand Canyon and thinking, "no picture can do this justice". So, maybe the pictures that I take can only be a memory of the beauty that I saw, even if it doesn't bring that beauty to others. But, oh, if it does, what joy! What do you do that brings that joy to you?
