Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

And Speaking of Signs

I have a teen and a young adult at home. We keep this dry erase board on the refrigerator to let each other know where we are, when we’ll be home, etc. My son and his friends think it’s funny. Wise guys.

At least no one said, “Went to the bathroom.”

Do Not Lock This Door! See Smaller Sign Below!
                   This Door Is To Be Kept Unlocked At All Times
~Sign seen hanging on a door at a local high school


  1. Love the sign and especially the boys' humor!
    Also the soooo intelligent sign from the hs. :o

  2. I used to get hall duty a lot near that door at the high school. I never got why they just put up a second sign rather than replacing the original (which is the size of an address label)! It's been that way for years.


Any return "messages" are appreciated!
