It runs in the family

My young nephew James drew this fish, and one of my favorite things about it is the big smile on its face. To me it represents how he (James) feels, and it makes me smile when he smiles. This masterpiece, along with a selection of drawings from his classmates, hung in a university art gallery for a bit. When asked if he knew why or how his was chosen, James responded, "Because it's so good." Can't beat that!

Blazing sunset

We get the most amazing sunsets where we live. This one is from the other night. The cows across the street were quietly grazing under the beautiful pink, orange, and blazing yellow sky, not seeming to even notice the spectacular sight. But I did.
