Snoozing Frog

“Times of general calamity and confusion have ever been productive of the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace, and the brightest thunderbolt is elicited from the darkest storm.”
– Charles Caleb Colton

Snoozing Frog

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

If general “calamity and confusion” produce wonderful things… I should be on fire.  Normally, things kind of slow down a bit for the holidays and that has not been the case this year.  I have had an amazing run!  Many new and exciting adventures have been filling my days.   The next few months promise to be even more hectic, as I finish up my flight training and launch my licensing business.

I think it’s time to give myself permission to be tired.    One does not always have to be “on”, right?  I think sometimes our batteries just need to recharge.    Christmas for me is going to be quality time with my wonderful husband and a little well deserved rest.  What are you going to do on Christmas day?

About Charles Caleb Colton

English minister and author Charles Caleb Colton was best known for his book of essays, Lacon, or Many Things in Few Words. He was born in 1780 in England. He was an avid collector of both wine and paintings and was known as an eccentric for his lifestyle, which was both lavish and ramshackle, and for his church work, which was sometimes brilliant, sometimes slipshod. After leaving the ministry, he lived in Paris for many years. He died in 1832.
