Lines ///////\\\\\\\\\

The notion of line or straight line was introduced by ancient mathematicians to represent straight objects with negligible width and depth. Lines are an idealization of such objects. Until the seventeenth century, lines were defined like this: "The line is the first species of quantity, which has only one dimension, namely length, without any width nor depth, and is nothing else than the flow or run of the point which […] will leave from its imaginary moving some vestige in length, exempt of any width. […] The straight line is that which is equally extended between its points....................................This according to Wikipedia..........................................did you get that!?

Morning

GOOD MORNING!
Morning is such a wonderful time of the day--that is IF you are a morning person!
So from me, who is a morning person, let's begin our day....................
 
 
From our kitchen window, I see the sun breaking through the screen and shades as I prepare my coffee...........ahh, a good start to the day!

And our day begins with our coffee and the computer--time to check the world events and make contacts with those in far off places

As I sip my coffee and work on the PC, I can look out the back slider and across the deck to listen and watch the kiddos as they line up, waiting for that school bell to ring...........................
and then
All
is
Quiet again!

Memory!



The human brain, one of the most complex living structures in the universe, is the seat of memory

Memory.................... of the those little ones as they grew through the ages!
Memory.....................of past lives and things that we have accomplished or not accomplished!
Memory......................fun times with family and friends
Memory.......................sad happenings
Memory.......................phone numbers, birthdates, special occasions
Memory.......................can be selective
Memory.......................is stored on my computer
Memory.......................can be improved
Memory.......................sometimes is short termed
Memory.......................can be long term
Memory........................is the sum total of what we remember
Memory......................is our experiences
Memory.......................is our skills, habits, impressions

Adornment!

Let's think about adornment.............Adornment is the only magazine published in the United States dedicated to the discussion of ancient, antique, and period jewelry, costume jewelry and contemporary studio jewelry. It also reports on objects of precious materials and historic costume--oh, how I LOVE browsing through this magazine.  The photos are colorful and the ideas bountiful! 
How do you Adorn yourself?
 
Let's pick out a color palette and go from there................ 

The stores carry quite a collection of ways to "adorn" yourself but I'm partial to being just

looking at the way the world adorns itself!

There are fragile treasures
