light

lightAn antique-style light bulb.
I had previously posted renderings of light bulbs for other entries and I have included a small selection below. From time to time, it is good to look through old drawings to see where and how far you have travelled.

paper

paperPaper or plastic?
The environmentalist in me wants to say “paper”, of course –or- arrive at the checkout line sporting one of those re-usable synthetic-material bags decorated with an image of a panda or something…but then I wonder, if we don’t want those cheap plastic grocery bags ending up in our landfills, why then do we buy larger capacity GLAD or HEFTY kitchen garbage bags to stuff with our daily rubbish?

trouble

troublePockets! When I was a child my pants had no pockets and life was carefree. The trouble began when I received my first dollar, had a shopping list or a schedule to keep and my pockets filled with complications.

wish

wishSome Fall yard work this weekend involved cleaning up an area under our porch steps. While removing a small pile of stones, I realized that several of the rocks were unusual and I began placing them to the side. Some of the rocks were beautiful specimens of quartz, turquoise and even pyrite –better known as ‘fools gold’. With every new discovery, I began to wish of finding a real gold nugget or that perhaps I would uncover a precious gem.
This is the second time I have found a trove of specimen rocks around my property, furthering speculation on just who might have collected the minerals.
