iPhone Moments: A Gulf Coast Sunset


A picture can say a lot with little need for words.  In the age of iphones and smart everything we have the ability to capture nearly every moment in our life experience and collect these visual bites of funny, beautiful, irreverent, and profound moments.  I am going to try to capture something “share-worthy” weekly on my iphone and post the images up here with a correlated quote that encapsulates what that picture embodies for me.  If anyone has a good iphone moment they want to share please send them along :) !  This week’s image is “A Gulf Coast Sunset” taken when I spent a week this month on Florida’s Gulf Coast where there are some of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen.  Exhibit A below captures some of the colors reflected off the water of the intercoastal waterway.  Nature makes beauty look so easy.

If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.   by

6 Words About 9-11


Everyone has a story.™
 Smith Magazine is the opiate for the concise masses.  They are currently asking for 6 word stories about 9-11 which will be developed further into  a project for PBS.  The stories on there so far are concise, sad, and profoundly poetic.
My own is shared as well because it was a profoundly shocking and sad day for all and this year’s 10th anniversary will be filled with much reflection, prayer, and reverence.
Visit SMITH’s 9-11 page HERE.
You can see all my 6 word memoirs HERE and links to my pages for all the memoirs at SMITH MAGAZINE’s site.
What would your 6 words be?  About 9-11, about your own history, about your own present?
My 6 words about 9-11 are as follows:
Friend hanging.  Towers falling.  Family missing.
