One of Dad's Photos

I wanted to share another of Dad's photos today. Another vision through my father's eyes. His world is pretty awesome. He showed me his old Navy photos and I was amazed. The experiences he has had... the places he has seen. I've always said that with age comes wisdom, and that statement is more true of him than anyone I know. Not to put him on a pedestal, because with living life comes mistakes, and regrets. I'm sure he has plenty of both. But the wisdom from all of that... the insight into why people do the things they do. Wow.

Trying really hard to keep the focus off of me today. I feel really blah. I have not slept well the past two days and all I really want right now is to go back to bed. But I need to go to work. Ugh.

Speaking of work, both of my brothers are coal miners in Utah. They have been laid off for weeks. They both got calls last night and they are going back to work today! I'm so relieved for them and their families. Times are tough enough right now without this added strain. So my hope is that they will both continue working, and they will be safe. It's difficult to be in a coal mining family. We've had family members die in the mines. It makes me nervous... but they are doing what's in their blood. What they love.

I'm opening a new shop on if you go there and do a search for robynsart you will find some of my photos. I'm sorta test driving it. I love the concept of it, but I'm not real sure that it's the best fit for me right now. If you have any insight once you look at it, please let me know. It's always appreciated!

Have a good Tuesday. I wish for you the same things I wish for me today. A relaxing, fulfilling, drama-free day.

Best of luck with your new shop. Seriously, you amaze me with your energy level and commitment to your art!

Ooooo, drama free is always a good thing!
