Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Sweet Iowa clouds taken while driving. Not recommended.
Just a few miles later I spied a car full of nuns. Not kidding. No picture. I was afraid the photo would be of screaming nuns and I'd hate to mess with their dignity.
My bizarre friend and I at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport. We were told to hold a small sign with the letters ACFW so people could find us easily. We took it to the next level. Boredom set in and we decided we needed to mix it up a bit. Six people were kind enough to tell us that the sign was upside down. Heh, Heh, Heh.
The moon was spectacular. This is as good as it got on "film." Even after Michelle and I ran across the road, risking our very lives, to get it in our sights.
