jens voigt

inspiring beauty.  coming down a mountain in the tour de france, jens fell off a ravine.  got up, came out of the bushes, and kept going.  jens (39) fell again.  got up and powered to the front to help the schleck brothers.  jens blog of the day  

another time he crashed, bike ruined, and borrowed a child's yellow bicycle with toe clips.

kings island

the car thermometer read 102 degrees on the way to kings island.  crazy to go, but we were visiting special out-of-towners.  the new swing, windseeker, goes up 301 feet before going around.  the view from way up is beautiful, but i didn't want to drop my camera.

i went running in the heat with my crazies - people from Bob Roncker's Running Spot - and stopped to take these shots with my phone.  The Ohio River is beautiful.

improvised life

a beautiful online thing - the manifesto at  allowing mistakes, testing new approaches - learning, essentially.  

when i was in grad school and struggling to fit in kids, work, and studies, my husband put this in a two part frame:

When you are in a situation
where nothing that has
happened in the past tells
you what to do, there is only
one course of action:                           Improvise  
                                                                                                Peter F. Drucker

took a hardhat tour of the sharonville convention center.  it was very interesting to see a building in progress.   the lower level was cool, but the upper level was very hot.  of course it was 95 outside.

the main entrance will be tall and filled with light.

beautiful book- kids make dinner.

Pumpkin juice from the Hogwarts Express, Kreacher's onion soup, Mrs. Weasley's rosemary redskin potatoes, and chocolate pudding for dessert.  An everyday joy, compliments of the children.

mercantile library

beautiful space, history.  interesting books

Starting slow...

I've always wanted to make a picture book with the remarkable beauty of things - regular stuff - usable, made or natural.  It's time to capture this beautiful stuff.
