A Lantern in the Woods.



I'll admit that I got the inspiration for this project straight from C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia.

My guitar teacher gave me his old lamp post when we stopped by his house one day as he was digging it up to put in a new one. He was like "Do you have a use for that?" I knew exactly what to do with it... It became a summer project of ours running wiring up into the woods since we had to dig a trench to do it, but the results were nothing short of absolutely magical!

Angels We Have Heard On High!

My sister and I had a bit of a laugh late last night conjecturing what types of music the angels might have played when God created the universe. (I can't remember where it is but it seems like I remember the Bible saying that there was music during the event.)

Heavy metal or hard rock on day 1. The earth and other rocks were formed on this day. But what popped into our heads, but a rather different looking group of angels then your usual illustration. Including a drummer angel who used his halo* for an additional percussion instrument. "ding ding"

*halos might not actually exist, at least not playable ones at any rate.

The arts are interesting.

It's amazing how much of it relies on personal taste. For example, the "Into the West" song on the Return of the King soundtrack, my friend thought it was awesome. I personally cannot stand the singer's voice. On the flip side, I love Gollum's Song from The Two Towers, he doesn't.

You'll never please everyone as an artist. But that's ok.

Political Pictures I Find Amusing...

(This is a politically neutral post, not meant to be an endorsement of anyone in particular, I just think they're funny. The comments are my own made-up "quotes")


"Oh we're best friends now."


"Well if Dad can hang out with Bill I can hang out with Bono."


"There is a suspicious looking character over here."


"Alright, so the Secret Service position isn't available. I guess I can try to be president! Next best thing you know."


"Maybe I could be a comedian if I lose! Do you think this is funny?"


"Or if I lose, why not fulfill my lifelong dream of being a hero, but not just an ordinary hero, no, a SUPERHERO, evil doers beware, you are no match for the awesome powers of OBAMA-BOY and his super-suction ears."

"They want a recount on the Global Warming findings. It's just one of those inconvenient things I have to put up with while the Earth gets warmer and warmer and warmer..."

Painting...

We are painting our, I guess it would be more of a dining room... It used to be our porch.

I'll keep the colors a secret and post a picture when it's done.
