WOULDN'T WE ALL like to camouflage at times the way this pet does on a beach at Davis Bay? Staying in the background can be comforting and feel safe when uninspired or simply tired and searching for a word that begins with the letter "C". As a teenager I certainly didn't want to be conspicuous and did my best to blend in with the rest.
But a closer look reveals no stone is commonplace when the tide washes color onto the gray. So if unnoticed or seen only by chance a glimmer of hope to step out of the shadows and to make a ripple need not be tossed away. My Penelope Puddle greeting card tells overlooked dreamers what they deep-down already know: "You're a special little pebble on the beach of life."
When I've lost my glow, I tend to dab a little extra glitter on the cards that I craft. Whenever I'm absorbed in creative projects, photography or the wonders of nature, some specks from a greater cosmic sparkle tend to rub off on me.
