Give Us This Day

WP Img0223-Edit-5

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

Harvest Still Life

WP Img0271-Edit

A vegetable garden, in the beginning looks so promising and then after all, little by little it grows nothing but vegetables, nothing, nothing but vegetables.
— Gertrude Stein

Vegetables are interesting but lack a sense of purpose when unaccompanied by a good cut of meat.

— Fran Lebowitz

On a more serious side, here is an extensive article on Still Life painting and artists.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Still_life

The Cycle

WP DSC_5516-Edit-2-Edit

“You will die but the carbon will not; its career does not end with you. It will return to the soil, and there a plant may take it up again in time, sending it once more on a cycle of plant and animal life.”

— Jacob Bronowski
