Thank you for your prayers. Apparently, the Lord had other plans for Patrick.

I am somewhat numb and very tired. I cannot believe that yesterday early afternoon Patrick and I were in Barnes and Noble and tonight he is so very fragile and on dialysis.
This is hard on my poor Mother. Her brother is terminal and she talks with him on the phone every night and now her son is very sick. We need your prayers and I thank each of you for your comments tonight and your prayers. It means so much. I firmly believe in the power of prayer and the strength in numbers. All of you prayed for him in December when he had his emergency open heart surgery and he did well. Thank you for that. Thank you for your friendship and for caring.
I thought I would not be posting, but it is helping me to put these words down. I will update when time permits. I will be heading back to the hospital first thing in the morning.
And now.... tea and then sleep.
Once again, I must ask you to please say a prayer for my brother, Patrick. He has only been here a week from Texas, visiting us. Last evening I had to take him to the ER as he was having extreme chest and stomach pain. Right now he is in the ICU and they are monitoring him very close. He has pancreatitis. Without going into detail, it would help so much if each of you said a couple of prayers for him. I will not be on here for a while ~ I am spending all my time at the hospital. I will be happy when I can post a message saying he is out of the woods.
I know I can count on you ~ you are all the best. Thank you.

one by one
not because they went anywhere
but because i loved the form of them
i loved the moss on them
i loved the creeping vines
i loved the look and feel of the cold damp stone
and as i walked back down i wondered
if they ever did lead to somewhere
that time one day erased

I went out there one day this week and happened to look down to see this skinny little guy peering out.
My research tells me he is a "rough green snake", common to the southeast. They can grow to be 30 inches long, but are skinny as pencils. The word "rough" describes their scales, and helps distinguish them from the "smooth green snake", which is found in the northeast.

I managed to find a little time this afternoon to work on my shutter again. It was another beautiful day with a nice breeze, so I parked myself outside with my paints and more. I am taking time to think this one out before adding things, so it is slow going. The theme is something I love ~ "birds".
I am so relaxed and happy when I am working on a piece of art. I would love to spend hours each day creating. Hopefully, the future holds that dream.
I will continue to post updates as I work on this.

This dragonfly is huge. He is at least 36" across and is made from repurposed items. His eyes are old door knobs. Very cool.
