I’m having a rather melancholy Monday, so I decided to just post a picture that makes me feel happy. I played this piano for years. So did one of my best friends in the world. So did the master pianist Liberace. What a colorful past it’s had. It has a new home in Georgia now. And I’m happy just thinking about it.
It’s been a week of enormous strain and pressure, but the result is a great deal of work completed successfully. I’m relieved, a little bit proud, and very much in need of some R&R. Probably won’t get it, but looking at this picture relaxes me. It makes me want to take a long, deep breath and let it out slowly, then kick back, close my eyes, and just inhale the rich scents of autumn. So I thought I’d just go ahead and share it with you. Some of you might need the refreshing it offers as well.
Not much time to post lately, but I CANNOT ignore such a great picture of coffee and the Smoky Mountains together. Enjoy!

God’s earth is so full of His beauty that even ordinary grass suddenly finds itself crowned with it. This spread of little purple flowers just had to force its way up and out of the ground — right in the midst of my yard — to give a colorful tribute to the Creator.
Even if I have to make it myself, I intend to have Spring right now!!!

Lee, over at Birdwatching Adventures Plus, asked me what I was going to do to entertain my blogging colleagues after the 31-day “Daily Grind Coffee Quotes.” Well, here it is — only this new series will last only 8 days. It’s a series of pictures and thoughts in commemoration of one of our best-loved (and somewhat overlooked) holidays here in the States: Thanksgiving. I don’t guarantee anything particular for this series — maybe some serious, maybe some hilarious, maybe even some stupid. I might even throw in a couple of my Thanksgiving poems from past years. So here goes. Below is post # 1 in the new series. Look for # 2 tomorrow.
