A Peek into my Journal


Beauty is many things. It is the sun rising above the timberline to give its light to a dark and waiting world.Sunset in the Ozarks
It is the sound of a loved one’s voice when an eternity has elapsed since you last heard the familiar echoes in your heart.

It is the violet beside the road, the “Sweet Williams,” the rose petals and budding oaks in spring.
It is the voice of a friend when you need someone who understands.
It is a secret that the beholder of beauty must open not only his eyes but his heart if he is to see the total realm of beauty.
Beauty and love intertwine, like ivy across a trellis, the one depends upon the other as they stand out to be seen in all  their splendor.

    You know I would love to see you do a post about journal writing–media (notebook/computer?), process, how you sustain it, benefits, etc. I have tried it a couple times over my life, never succeeding and it seems to be such a wonderful resource for you…


  2. Yes beauty is all around us if only we take the time to look.
