Ann Voskamp on Beauty

I sat in the audience and watched Ann Voskamp take her place behind the podium.  I had never heard of her nor had I ever read her blog.  But, based on the comments I had heard the first couple of days at The Relevant Conference, Ann was a speaker not to be missed. She started by letting us know she was not a speaker.  Within minutes, I knew she was right.  She was not a speaker, but an artist...a poet.  She weaved words and painted pictures like that of a master painter.  She layered colors and descriptions with the … [Read more...]

And, purple thistle.  Does this make you think about a Thanksgiving mantel?  Well, not right off the bat.  But, I think that decoration is most interesting when it's unusual. Here's a more traditional gathering of browns and oranges.  The Chinese Lanterns … [Read more...]
