“Everything is beautiful in a person when he turns toward God,

and everything is ugly when it is turned away from God.”

Fr. Pavel Florensky

This is an old plastic toy clock that we found at a garage sale recently.  It has a pull cord that winds up a music box.

open ended summer

My summer somewhat unexpectedly opened up just a few weeks ago when I decided not to take summer classes.  I made that decision primarily because my wife is expecting a baby at the end of June, about the same time as one of my finals would have been scheduled.  I really couldn’t have afforded to miss either one of those.  The other reason is a change in degree plan (still nursing, but an A.A. instead of a B.S.N., at least for now).

So, I may now have time to work on my list of projects:

  • Put a garden in (got this done just a few days ago with some tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and a compost pile)
  • Build a twin bed for my son (my wife has this in mind)
  • Learn REAPER
  • Teach summer music lessons (I teach with Searcy Community School of Music)
  • Get over to Tennessee to visit our land a time or two
  • Write some music (I have a couple things already going)
