A Zeppelin Built for Two

Daisy, Daisy, tell me your answer true,
I’m half crazy, all for the love of you.

It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage.
But you’ll look sweet
Upon the seat,
of a Zeppelin Built for Two.

Another Door Opens

The inspiration was the word “threshold.” The deliberate act of crossing from one place into another. A door, a doorway, a beginning.

But brick by brick, it took on deeper symbolism. Another door opens … into what?

We open the doors, we peek out, we step through. But until that moment, we never really know what’s out there.

Always …

Hold Your Horses!

You hear a common phrase a thousand times, then one day you hear it anew: Hold Your Horses!

Of course it harks back to a day when people used horses daily, when “hold your horses” probably meant “stop, wait a minute, think this through” or some variation. Hang on there, pardner, you’re not ready to hit the road.

But from another perspective, it might mean something else altogether. Patience, my friend, all in good time. Don’t let your horses take off before you’re ready. And don’t let them go without you.

“Hold Your Horses” – one of a kind custom snow globe by Camryn Forrest Designs. Miniature metal-tone man holding tiny horses from floating away, when shaken, the liquid fills with shimmer dust and black and white confetti horses. The ones that got away, apparently.
