My 10 Favorite River Stones are:

Fiona asked for our 10 favorite 'small stones' so for better or worse these are mine.

1. Surprises and knotty decisions are like dandelions in Spring -- you never when where or when they're going to pop up.

2. Tangled yarn is easier to fix than a tangled life. Maybe that's why I'd rather stay home and needlepoint.

3. Reflection can be a good thing when inspiration joins the fray and prompts new vision.

4. How precious it is to end the day and feel that it was productive and a blessing rather than a burden.

5. When I read Lia's blog, Yum Yum Cafe, this morning I realized that contemplating New Year's resolutions was not what I needed. The better approach is a New Year's revolution. After an tumultuous 2010 on several levels, it's time to seriously consider some major changes and muster the courage I know I have stashed somewhere in the clutter in my poor damaged brain and move forward.

6. Starting my very own personal, life-changing revolution isn't as easy as it sounded two days ago, nor does coming up with a scintillating 'stone' each day and the list of such endeavors goes on and on . . .

7. Blame and denial by certain factions, entities and individuals will not solve the travesty that's occurred in our country. Am I angry? Damned right!

8. Every time I think that I'm making some progress in getting things organized, I find something else I need to organize.

9. There's nothing like an Alberta Clipper blowing about nine inches of snow through Ohio to remind us that it's winter. Yikes!

10. As I think of what happened in Arizona, I can't help but think that -- as I always have -- that the Reckless Right has gone too far. Prayers for all who were killed or injured just don't seem sufficient and ring hollow in the insanity of it all.


  1. you can only do your best.

    good luck.

  2. Number 3 is apt. I entirely agree with it.

  3. Couldn't agree more with that last one! Lovely new digs, too.


I Love comments but ask that if you want to use 'Anonymous' that you put your name in the body of the message.
