An extraordinary weekend

a beautiful young lady pooh

This weekend has been very fruitful in many different ways. My daughter, Lady gave birth to a baby girl on Christmas day. What a beautiful thing on this sacred day. Shawn and Lady have decided to name her Ming Carter Ellis McFadden. I also found myself exploring new ground here on my blog. Discovering a great showcase theme for the blog and importing my own image for its background: elements from the piece entitled “The Mind in Conscious Meditation.” I will continue to edit the blog page until I incorporate all the components needed to create a beautiful and functional blog page.
