Today's Tendril...

Watching snow flakes paint the empty road white and coat the sky-facing sides of leafless branches.

A pine tree is illuminated with Christmas lights.

A squirrel runs along a stone wall, stops, gets up on its hindquarters, and becomes a statue of light snow.

The New Year already looks promising...

Tendrils 7: Fallen

If the possibilities are truly endless, then they're only gated by the locks of the mind.

 

Finished, complete, and done are merely states of relativity.

 

Tendrils of the imagination come and go like a ghost in the night; like a ghost in the mind.

 

Hope not only renews (the heart, mind, and soul), but it adapts to the world outside our windows — and to the worlds within our minds.

 

Passion becomes intensity. Intensity becomes rapture. Rapture becomes everything.

 

Sometimes all we need is the tranquility of solitude, found beneath the moonbeams of a cold winter night.

 

Evolution is a historical view.

Adaptation is the here and now.

Expectation is a burden to carry.

Anticipation is a double-edged sword.

 

Every Autumn leaf finds its own path to the earth.

 

Simplicity is like the beast waiting in the tall grass, or the creature with many tentacles lurking in the depths of a lake, or the red-eyed thing moving under the bed.

 

Intentions are like ghosts: They come and go in the blink of an eye.

 

Patience and perseverance go hand-in-hand.

And are often accompanied by frustration and iteration.

When the clouds thicken to green,
Soon the wind will become mean.

About

If the possibilities are truly endless, then they're only gated by the locks of the mind.

The true challenge of a thinker (dreamer, seeker) is not preventing the locks from being picked, but knowing when to allow the guards to unlock the gates.

Today's Tendril...

I trust my soul to faith (in God, in Christ, in love).

For everything else, I want to see the data (the facts, the figures, the processes — the proofs).

Today's Tendril...

Wisdom and perseverance are not the same things, though the former may come from surviving the latter, while the latter will only come from applying the former.

About

Red – a fitting color for this holiday season: Love, Santa, blood of the Savior, anger (the "Christmas crazies"), decorations, Rudolph's shiny nose, blinking lights, holly berries, and presents.

Three Tendrils for Today

If content is king, then context is queen, and subtext is the devil in disguise.

 

The fool and the wise man are the ears of interpretation.

 

A good life: Many blessings, few regrets, and your integrity whole.

Today's Tendril...

To question integrity—in yourself and in others—is to get to the heart of the matter; to get to the heart of what matters.
