Valle di Campo, Ticino by HorstSchmier

Sat Nov 24, 2018, 12:23 PM

Horst does beautiful work with his large-format cameras.

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

The Heidelberg Catechism , written in 1563, remains a warm-hearted and personal statement of the Christian faith. It begins thusly...

What is your only comfort in life and in death?

That I am not my own,
but belong--
    body and soul,
    in life and in death--
    to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven:
in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.

Because I belong to him,
Christ, by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready

Be here - prompt for November 16.

An invocation addressed to God, to others, and to oneself. To God, the other, and myself I say, "Be here. Now. I need you here."

To myself, especially, I say, "I need you here in this moment, not lost in the future or dwelling on the past, but here, living this moment. It's the only one we have."

And God is here.
The writing prompt for today was "rest". And so I did.
Today's writing prompt is, appropriately, 'Open'.

The polls are open and I voted. I was moving stiffly, sorely, and very, very slowly. ctryon50 drove me there, since I am in no shape to drive right now, but I would have voted in this one even if I had had to crawl.

I removed the Love Trumps Hate pin from my jacket since it could easily be construed as electioneering at the polls. Ironically, it is a message to Democrats every bit as much as to Republicans. Jesus says we are to love our enemies and pray for the ones who abuse us. (From a safe distance I hasten to add.)

Love your enemies, lest you become like them.
