Spring Color Pops on the Way to Yoga

The calendar shows spring. The clock chimes noon. My bare feet beg for shoes and my knees ache from cold.

Patience, I say as I head toward my yoga class where I will warp my blood into a dream of warm. As I walk toward the PE building, there are actual signs of spring and suddenly I feel warm and happy as the hibernation gray of this day releases me.

Mosaic Photos

Three granddaughters have birthdays in this 30-day period and I try to do something original each year for their cards.

When I accidentally ran across Andrea Mosaic it appeared to be a nifty idea. It's fairly user intuitive and I've created several landscape photos with it. The nice thing is that you can make as many changes as desired. I haven't settled on the perfect combo yet, but I'll keep trying.

In the meantime, it's another challenging project with unusual results. Even as I post this, I'm thinking of other options to try. The mosaics are better in full size and would make wonderful posters.
