 Day 365. The End.

Day 365. The End.

I did it.

There are no ribbons or trophies for the completion of this effort.

There is no fanfare.

But

I have learned these are the best victories.

There is so much left to share, to say, and it will come.

But for now, I will leave you with 214 year old words by William Blake.

When you intentionally seek to find it, there is so much beauty, so much magic, everywhere.

 Day 363

Day 363

In the deep north cold, The Nordic Goddess Leah cast a spell of New Years blessings on all that were near. She granted us wealth in the form of Love, prosperity in the form of health and riches in the form of creativity.

(Thank you to my baby girl for always being game to create with me!)

Day 363

His hair is everywhere, as well as his slobber, but this big derpy dude has my heart.  He helped me heal from the loss of his black and white sister, despite his massive size, he is extremely gentle and never steals from the countertop, and he has demonstrated the value of a long nap.  Today, as the air literally hurt my face, he reminded me it was important to play, if even for a few minutes.  I love this big mutthead.

 Day 362

Day 362

Today I finally got out of the house to run some much needed errands.  As I finished up, it was after 4, and I knew that, in this part of the country, it would soon be dark.  So, for about a half hour, in -5 degree weather, I chased the sun.  I wandered north waiting for the shot, because I knew the sun and bitter cold wouldn't disappoint.  As I turned the corner, there the shot was, waiting for me; a fleeting moment captured, before the sun went down.

 Day 361

Day 361

I'm on day 5 of this Bubonic plague or typhoid or whatever has me down, so it was another day spent in my pajamas. On the upside, I got schooled in LEGO'S by my 7 year old.  I learned a lot... such as I can't tell the difference between navy, black or gray when it comes to LEGO instructions, and his ability to see, flip and copy something he has already built is a skill I do not possess. Three solid hours of building later, we completed the Blue Power Jet, complete with moveable flaps. I learned a lot today.

 Day 360

Day 360

In October, my daughter took part in a Short Film that was being shot in Fargo. Like a good mom, after I saw the SAG daily rate, I lied and said maybe she would get paid $25 or $50.  Today she got her paycheck, which was more than $50.  Her reaction was priceless!

 Day 359

Day 359

He is the son, and nephew, of houses divided.

Also called mixed marriages in this state.

After opening one package that had an ugly yellow and green shirt in it, which he was thoroughly excited about,

you can see his *thrill* at receiving this totally awesome and amazing shirt from his Aunt,

my fellow UND alum.

He is still young, he can be molded and shaped to see the light....
