A few weeks ago I asked if you'd fill out a brief survey for me. Partly because I want to know you. But partly because I want to serve you in the material I offer here. I wasn't surprised by most of the entries, but one answer was given over and over: we want to see pictures of your life, who you are, pieces of you. This surprised me. I'm just living a small life, steady, a bit boring, filled with simple things.
These are things that give you a small glimpse into that. I guess I don't feel defined by what I do and say and see, but I feel very defined by what I think. It's imbalanced, though, I know. So here, I give you an iphone deluge of photos. Snapshots of my little life in big Texas.
If any of you have any brilliant ideas of how to make practically the easiest houseplant

which is one of my real passions. Graphic design is just a way to make money at it.
I love pens and papers.
I've noticed the Buddhist prayer banners and hated that
something so beautiful wouldn't be welcome in a home where Christ was King.
But God is a creator and I think He loves it when we create.
So I created. And this is what it came out looking like.
I think God's okay with it.
But I think one reason for the lack of movies that I've seen, is due to the fact
that I have seen one movie perhaps too many times to count.
The protagonist's name is Purslane Hominy Will.
"Purslane is a weed you know?"
But that didn't stop us from buying a whole pot of it a few weeks ago.
It's an awfully pretty weed.
