….connect the dots….

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. – Steve Jobs

I’ve been absent from my blog for several weeks as I ran for a position in my union. Sadly, last evening, after the votes were tallied, I was not successful, yet I am glad I made the effort to work for change.

Many people today have given words of advice around how when one door closes, another one opens. I like the above quote better – I cannot connect the dots of what my future holds right now, but I have to trust in something. I trust that the right path will become known soon.

Spring Day

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month – Henry Van Dyke

Spring Day


Although this was taken indoors at Allen Gardens, today does feel like a spring day when the sighting of flowers outdoors seems possible.


A gentle heart

A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread – George Herbert

I posted a picture earlier of this amazing plant, a thread agave, but felt that this shot was also worthy of posting. This plant is amazing from a distance and more so from close up.
