No snow photos for a change.

Our trip to Florida was great again. It was nice to sit outside for hours and hours instead of seconds and seconds.

I like getting away to warm Florida, but I like Iowa better. We have constant change. The light, especially in winter, is incredible. As nice as 80 degrees and sunny is, I’ve never seen anything in Florida that can compare to what I saw Friday morning on my drive to work. The sky was overcast except for a thin band on the eastern horizon. The sun was just coming up, lighting up the bottom of the clouds and the top of the trees. The trees were covered in hoar frost. It was a breathtaking sight. Spring is just around the corner. The yearly renewal.

Just a few February thoughts:
In two weeks, Angie and I will be in the air on the way to Florida for a few days away from winter.
"Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die"
Escape – some people golf, some fish, some work, some camp, some run, some sleep, some photo; how can we be full without it? Is it selfish to demand it?
Teenagers can eat their weight in food in just a few days. Quicker than that if they're bored.
I think if Jesus had a music cd, it would speak to more folks than the Bible does.
The slowest clock in the world hangs next to the running track at the Huxley community center.
