Cryptograms & Recuperation

i love cryptograms
i've been doing them for several years
and the more i do them, the easier they get

i especially like the ones
that are cryptic quotes

many times i come across a quote that needs more attention
than just being solved in a puzzle book

i  decided to add the quote i solved this morning
to the above image

the message and sentiment
is so true

my apologies for not having been around much lately
my mom is visiting and unexpectedly had an emergency hospital stay last week
she's fine but is still recuperating here with us until next week
obviously, photography and blogging has been put on the back burner

better than a thousand words....

i've always been a visual person
words can go in one ear and right out the other
but show me a visual
and the world becomes crystal clear

how about you?

A Photo-A-Day

i haven't been shooting enough lately
my creativity button
(something that used to get pushed every day)
has just been sitting quietly
gathering dust
looking all lonesome 
on the far left corner of my desk 
in between blog posts

but last week 
as i was typing on my keyboard
it began calling 
in the weakest of voices
"push me, push me"

that poor little button looked so pathetic
i didn't have the heart to ignore it
so i picked it up, dusted it off
and moved it right next to my mouse

i am
 once again
pushing it daily

if you subscribe to my
facebook JillsyGirl Studio page
you might have already noticed
a new daily post
called Photo-A-Day

it's the next best thing to blogging
no words
just photographs

if you'd like to visit
in between blog posts
to see what i've been shooting
you can do so
all you need to do is hit the "like" button
to receive my daily photos on your feed
(buttons are needy little creatures, always wanting attention) about some strawberries & cream?
