The blog connection...

You know, before the day I started this thing, I never once thought about blogging as something I wanted to do. That very day, my friend Sally (who really needs a web site so I can send business her way!) sent me a link to this fanciful blog, knowing my fondness for rhinos: Rhino Takes A Holiday. It got me thinking about rhinos and blogging and my own darling rhino who sits with me at the computer. Her name is Grace because I randomly set her on top of a little cutout from a box of Philosophy perfume, called Amazing Grace. I loved the words, saved the blurb, and named my rhino in the process. Then came the blog, and the rhino-blog-friend connection completes a circuit. Kind of like electricity. Well, maybe... As you can see here, I have a habit of gathering bits of stuff and pinning them up in my workspace. I like these things. They inspire and encourage me. They're little visual pep talks to myself.

The words on the Grace label go like this: "how you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. and so it is with life, which for many of us become one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson, in the end, it all comes down to one word. grace. it's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light."

On my best days, all I'm really looking for is grace in a small life.
