Take a Line for a Walk

January 17, 2012

My brother and Page (Call Me Nana tells about my memories of her) have a very talented granddaughter named Alex.  She is a wonderful photographer and artist and is a grade school art teacher.  Unfortunately she grew up on the other side of the country from us, so I haven’t seen her since she was a little girl.  And now she is married and has an adorable little boy, but still lives in the same area … so still far away.  But this is one of the nice things about Facebook — because of it, I’ve gotten to know Alex and her art and have become a fan.

Well, now Alex has started putting videos on her blog, Sabot Studio, which are geared to children, but I enjoy them too.  And I look forward to introducing DD’s daughters to her videos.  I’m sure they will enjoy them too.

Here is the first one of her videos I watched.  I was just totally charmed, so I wanted to share it with you.

I gave this a shot today and it’s no accident that I’m not showing you how my “walk with a line” turned out.  But even though mine didn’t turn out quite as well (ahem) as Alex’, I enjoyed it.  So I’ll try it again with the girls.

Hope you and any children in your life have fun with it too!  And if you go to her blog, you can see her others.

An inspiring 9/11 story you may not have heard …

September 16, 2011

When I saw this video I was shocked that there is any aspect of the 9/11 tragedy and its heroes that I hadn’t heard of before.  But here is a wonderful story that deserves wide circulation.

I am inspired by those who when confronted with unexpected events, step up and do heroic things without hesitation.


Straight No Chaser may make you giggly, but not drunk!

I had heard about this group because they started singing together when they were all students at Indiana University.  But, wow are they good … and I’m not just saying that because they’re from Indiana.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Here’ a Boost for your day!

I’ve never tried to put a video in a post before, but I just had to try with this one.  This is such an inspiring story and I hope it will give each one of you a blessing today.
