March Birthstone

The second in command birthstone for March is Bloodstone. Aquamarine is the modern-day stone, and as much as I love it, I like to learn about the stones we would only see by visiting a local rock shop. Bloodstone is the ancient or traditional stone believed to have metaphysical properties with its mineral content being quartz or chalcedony.

This is a vintage rock and mineral book I’ve had for a very long time.
Another little treasure!

See you next month when I dig up some info on the diamond.

A Treasured Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer is the Bible verse that we all know well.
This is a beautiful sample of the prayer in German on a wax form. My Oma gave it to me. Today, it is one of my treasured items along with many things
that make me smile and help me remember her.

the lords prayer

 

 ~~~~~
Mathew 6:9-13
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Amen.

embroidered handkerchief

My Oma, German for Grandma, always appreciated beautiful things like this embroidered
handkerchief. I wonder if she ever really used it. She probably just admired it, as I do.

What do you hold near and dear, and does it inspire you to write or photograph it?

Eye Candy Witness

Sunset, March 16th

 

Eye Candy is a phrase used to describe something beautiful to look at. The sunset last night was just that. We were drawn to the light as it ushered our eyes into a celebration of color! The contrast of the dark budding branches on the backdrop of blue and pink gradients of color was sent from heaven for sure!

The sunset was captivating, with the warm and cool tones of lavender and pink cotton candy. My husband watched me while I captured a cloud formation from the kitchen window with my iPhone. 

In retrospect, my husband is always an eyewitness to my creative process. He is watching quietly from across the room, or even better, sharing a moment, a thought or idea, that could be the start of a great collaboration.

Who is your witness to your creative process?

Almost Solitude

Clinch Marina, Traverse City, Michigan

Early morning at Clinch Marina, I thought I was alone at 6:45 a.m. Usually I am by myself in the marina that early, and the sunrise shot was my goal. We, the duck and I, decided to have a photo session. It was the highlight of my morning of almost solitude.

 

 

Michigan Home

All the snow melted today and this weekend is Spring Forward! The Winter was mild this year in Michigan…and time is flying by…Spring will be here soon! Usually, Springtime brings a lot of rain. If you are a rock lover like me, you’ll enjoy looking down at all the stones when it rains, and how the detail is brought to the surface by the moisture.

Petoskey Stone, Charlevoix, Michigan

My idea of “home” can be symbolized by our State stone, Petoskey. Named after a French fur trader, Pet-O-Sega, who was also recognized as an Ottawa Indian Chief in Harbor Springs, Michigan. I have a small collection of these stones that bring back memories of all the times spent up north. Clenching onto a little gray stone meant you had a good day at the beach, when lucky enough to find one. I saw this one in our yard. I left it there, but took it home in this photograph.

What is your image of home?
