“Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?” Benjamin Franklin
This quote by Franklin reflects two totally different themes that touched my life this week. One is an ongoing payback to a dear friend who owns Hostal Ciragan in Jama Ecuador. Because I have stayed with them so often over a seven-year period, she often refuses my money.
“Hmmmm. Two can play that game,” I smirked, and when possible, I leave behind a token, “Thank you” smile.
The top image is there to remind you that the spring equinox approaches, and in a month some of us will be marking the sun’s shadow at noon and possibly again at sunset. (June Solstice Sundial) Please consider awakening your inner compass and reconnecting with our earth and witness the sun’s path across our horizon!
There are so many options to take timeouts for art! Tap into your talents and start a new project – it can be as easy as marking the sun’s shadow and pondering the token parts we play in this amazing journey of life!
