And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.
I walked outside this morning, the day before Easter and saw these amazingly beautiful flowers surrounding my walkway. The skies were blue and I felt happy. I felt God. I grabbed my camera and took these pictures so I could share the beauty with you. My pictures don’t do Frost’s Spring poem justice-the only thing that could would be for you to walk through a blooming orchard or sit in a garden and reflect on the poem’s words, and enjoy the moment. Take a second and listen to Your Love is Strong – it’s moving, earthy, rich. Just Like God, Just like spring. Happy Easter….Kathy
Now that it is March and spring is only days away, Rochesterians are thawing out in record numbers. Best place to be on the weekend – our Public Market on Union Street. Since 1905 the Rochester public market has provided our community with fresh produce, delicacies, ethnic delights, and a big city feel. Besides snagging amazing deals and spying interesting folks, I got some great photos I thought you might enjoy.
First stop: Boulder for fresh roasted coffee beans and cappuccino.
We timed it just right to hear good music.
Next stop: pastries and fresh bread at Union Street Bakery.
Teaching high school art is intimidating and challenging to a parent like me who has no artistic talents. I am so art challenged that my husband even forbids me from painting a wall because I miss spots and leave unsightly drip marks. But, I am excellent at following instructions and have a knack for recognizing quality curriculum. When it comes to teaching art, Artistic Pursuits has nailed it. The focus of the teaching is on the elements of art and the principles of design. The student will be creating his own amazing works of art through conversational presentations of art vocabulary, techniques, and blazing colorful reproductions of both well known European artists and outstanding student examples.

Supplement your curriculum with an expert’s interpretation of art. Have you seen any of Sister Wendy’s art videos? Such a treat! I love her.
