The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

better little things

Hesperaloe parviflora
The flowering stalk of this plant reaching towards the overcast layer outside the hospital ... a little thing that encouraged joy.  Here's a better overview of the plant ... and someone's good info on it.

H is for Hesperaloe Parviflora

Larry drove me all over the place
this taken probably North of Lake Travis
on the way to a pleasant day sipping wine and eating yummy food
I really liked being back in Texas

this is the "icebox" at Mueller's in Taylor
that root beer was tempting
Tommy ... seems like every time something unpleasant happened while he was in the hospital, or even at home ... I would look at him to see how that was effecting him and seems like every single time, and there were a lot of them, he'd shrug and say, "it's a little thing...".  I think that may exemplify the attitude that's going to get us all through this thing.  I think it's pretty neat to toss some of that stuff, the crappy stuff, in to the little thing bucket ... off load the little stuff. And what I'm trying to do is off set the yucky little things by making time to notice the nice little things, and there are a lot of them.
