I miss the daffodils in Birmingham. They lined the pathway to class and scented the air and made me yearn for spring. When I saw a potted daffodil here I thought it would be the solution. Unfortunately room temp does not keep daffodils happy and mine dwindled. But they are now growing prolifically here so I am enjoying them outside in abundance. They're still not quite the same as Birmingham though.

so very true

"I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." -- Theodore I. Rubin, MD

Whimsical Wednesday III

In keeping with past wednesdays I explored my favorite spots in the city. I had a job interview on the eastern end of market st so I explored the ferry building.....

enjoyed the oddities.....

coveted everything at Boulettes' Larder.....

basked in the sunshine.....

and took in the life of the city. There is so much to see and do and absorb. I can't wait for next wednesday when I visit the de young museum in golden gate park.

A couple of weeks ago I attended Mosaic Church in Berkeley. A woman named Jill spoke about the challenge she's took to take one photo a day last year. This expanded to her friends in Kansas and Massachusetts. They now have a blog called 3-see where they post a photo a day with a paragraph discussing its meaning. Its helped them see the world in a new way. Its helped me as well. My favorite is a video Jill created about Psalms 13. Beauty comes in so many forms.
