I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the apathy of people in our society. “Our” society meaning American but it’s clear that it’s everywhere. This post really hit home to what I have been pondering all day. Please read it and visit her site…..

The story of Rudi

A token plastic elephant, my silent promise

A few months back, I met an incredible woman. She was walking alongside a dusty, endless road, very slowly and noticeably too old to be carrying a small child on her back. I stopped and asked her where she was going and would she like a lift? She said ‘No, she is almost home.’ I asked if the child was her grandchild to which a brief story came tumbling out.

Where are you??

Where are you?  Ha ha ha ha! I think that has been the questions from my friends since school has started.  I have not  logged onto the computer in quite a while.  I have been home schooling my oldest son, my 6th grader as well as keeping an organized schedule of my other three school schedules, soccer schedule, dance schedule,  mixed with a couple of photo shoots.  Whew.  I have been very engaged in life lately! 🙂  I think I am finally getting a rhythm to life with all of these changes.  We were all spoiled this past summer with late nights outside with friends and a loose schedule.

Even though I have been absent on my website, I have continued to read many of your blogs.  I have really enjoyed reading through all of your posts even though I have not commented.  I hope to start popping up more soon.

Have a fantastic day!
