Get On the Bus

We’re in love with our cars in South Carolina. If we can afford our own personal vehicle, we’d much rather hop in our own car than take public transportation.

Glass

I recently found myself lugging a large plastic rolling camera case, a tripod and a light kit into a dainty glass studio. The overwhelming fear was that with one wrong step, hundreds of dollars worth of glass would come tumbling to the floor and the gorgeous craftsmanship of the One Eared Cow Glass would be reduced to a rainbow of glass shards.

books

In this age of Twitter, when we want things quick, fast and in a hurry, I surprised myself by coming across several books recently that I really want to read. Books, yes full-sized books, not just some three or four paragraph mini-article off BuzzFeed.

Personality Plus by P.A. Bennett

personality

People are all so wonderfully different. We each have our own unique personality. Some personalities we see as good, others we aren’t as pleased with. Then there are people with “personality plus.” Those are the people we are drawn to and with whom we are impressed.
