Being in Nature is the closest thing to worship that I can imagine. In the presence of Creation I am humbled. When I edited these photos, one of my Mom’s favorite hymns flashed through my mind. And that is always my cue to listen. I consider it her contribution to, and support of, my joy in capturing these moments of perfection.
When spoken with a deep West Texas drawl, that would be “my-nez” of course, which I just realized is the way I manage to express the intent to move forward with a plan of action.
Example: “We my-nez well hit the road early to avoid the traffic.”
Mind you, it’s a subtle sound, almost unrecognizable; and I have done it my entire Southern life without knowing it until this morning.
Of course I am saying, “might as well”, and do enunciate in most all actual conversations. It just seems to be an over-the-shoulder familiar slang language that I use when feeling comfortable with family or friends for my entire life. It sits right up there alongside:
”I’ll holler at you later.”
”We’re fixin’ to go get burgers.”
😱 Where and when did it begin? Why have I never noticed it before? Nobody knows…
Meanwhile, let me intoduce you to the inspiration for the slang, if only subliminally. (Warning: all mayonaise haters should leave the room now)
This jar of magical fluffy white yumminess is the secret ingredient to my ‘famous’ potato salad, great tuna salad, chicken salad, burgers, dressings……..you get it?
Okay then, I have confessed to my faux pas. Now I my-nez well go make a sandwich. 😀💕
Hey fellow wordsmiths! I’m thinking the top of the hill looks mighty small this week and I might need a rope to reach the summit. Energy is low and I’m feeling the negative vibrations in general more this week.
So, to keep me moving forward and to inspire you onward and upward, I’ll just share a bit of what I’m always working towards. Here are some more shots from my last #Free48.
So many bees..so little time.
