The Test of Fame, or Reaching The Top

Have you ever noticed how some people seem to go a little crazy or become someone else once they reach a certain level of “success”? There’s an old proverb that says, “If you want to test someone’s heart, give them a little fame.”  Fascinating right?  First time I read this proverb, I was expecting, give them a little money, or give them a little power, or something more material.  It stopped me in my tracks a little until I had some time to reflect on it.  Fame can be a powerful influencer on one’s view of oneself, one’s status...

Beyond The Mundane

First, thanks for visiting this page. I do not take lightly the fact that you are spending some of your precious time taking in what I have to say and show you. It is appreciated. Second, I love this shot for a number of reasons. This photo perfectly encapsulates a quote I hold close to me often as I go through the daily routines of life.

You see, there is so much I get fed up with, grief stricken by, sick and depressed over. Just watch the news and you know what I mean or look at the headlines for the last month. But then… then there’s this… young love, a budding flower, an unexpected smile. I have to hold on to those things or...

The Unforced Rhythms of Grace

The quote below is one of my favorites from Jesus as it is a good reminder on how to live life in such a way that it is a cooperation with life itself, and when I saw this picture of the surfer in my portfolio it just seemed to match well. I’ve never actually surfed myself, but I imagine it certainly involves waiting and working in accord with the ocean and rhythm of the waves. One cannot force a wave to come but must learn how to read them and ride them as they freely come. Such is how...
