Why the Rocker?

September 10, 2011
12 Noon

The rocking chair that I attached to my morning entry is a tease for a little story that I plan to write today. Every picture tells a tale, right?

We love family associations that involve a little background history to the furniture and objects that collect around us. I can’t imagine living with just stuff of no meaning. If you are lucky enough to know the former owner of a piece of art or furniture, you have some provenance of the item. I like the word, provenance. It’s just a high faultin’ word for telling a tale.

More on the rocker to come…

    Mike, I am really enjoying reading your blog! And, I must say, that it is rewarding to know that all the pencil sharpening is paying off so beautifully 🙂 I will be thinking of you, praying for you, and holding you in the Light, as you take the next step on your yellow brick road to recovery.
