Montage Monday: Friends, Fun and Feathers

29 Apr

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
― Ansel Adams
This week was filled with meeting friends, finding feathers and lucky coins, and taking fun photos. A week in a peek.



Montage Monday: To All My Peeps and Friends

22 Apr

“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”
― Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
I agree Miss Austen. It is not in my nature either. I spent a very jammed packed busy week with so many of these wonderful friends, and I would do anything for them, and they the same for me.

Good Friday started off my weekend baking frenzy. I baked 6 dozen large cupcakes and decorated them for “my peeps” and firemen friends, and 4 dozen mini cupcakes. All were well received, and it was my extreme pleasure to make so many people smile. This makes my heart soar. I don’t do things by halves, more like by the dozens.

A week in a peek.


Montage Monday: Family

21 Jan

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.
-Desmond Tutu
I am blessed with many gifts from God, and my family is the greatest blessing. Being able to spend so much time with my mom, my sons and my sister has been wonderful. Seeing old friends is another gift. They are just like family. Forget that! They are family! Life is good!

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Harriet Tubman

The bad news is that time flies. The good news is that your the pilot.
Another week has flown by. A week in a peek that didn’t squeak.


Monday Montage: A Week in a Peek

1 Jul

From dancing dogs to putting out fires, it’s been a busy week, and as they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Wait a minute. Who is they, anyway? Hold on! I’m gonna look that up…. OK, here it is…from Wikipedia…or just scroll down and look at the photo… much easier and faster…

[The adage[citation needed] “A picture is worth a thousand words” refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image. It also aptly characterizes one of the main goals of visualization, namely making it possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly.
The expression “Use a picture. It’s worth a thousand words.” appears in a 1911 newspaper article quoting newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane discussing journalism and publicity.[1]
1913 newspaper advertisement
A similar phrase, “One Look Is Worth A Thousand Words”, appears in a 1913 newspaper advertisement for the Piqua Auto Supply House of Piqua, Ohio.[2]
An early use of the exact phrase appears in an 1918 newspaper advertisement for the San Antonio Light which says:
One of the Nation’s Greatest Editors Says:
One Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
The San Antonio Light’s Pictorial Magazine of the War
Exemplifies the truth of the above statement—judging from the warm
reception it has received at the hands of the Sunday Light readers.[3] ]

So, there you have it. TMI
