"Why would you want that wreck?" asked my friend. "No offense, but eeuw."
Honestly, it threw me for a little while. Maybe she's right, maybe we're crazy.
But Mr. Wonderful gave me perspective again.
"Our friend sees what's there, how awful it looks today.
You and I are seeing what it can become. We see the possibilities."
For now, the Idea Notebook grows fatter and Mr. Wonderful has hinted that there is a new jig saw from the hardware store coming for my birthday!
Meanwhile, just down the road...
Snow geese are honking, tempting me to escape the studio, Nikon in hand despite the rain.
Astonishing, aren't they?
It's gray and gloomy January but even in the damp there are rays of joyful sunshine, spots of hope.
