I painted with the Ladies yesterday. It was good to be back to my usual - whatever that is. This is what I painted - do you think I was in an odd mood?
One of the topics on the "agenda" while we painted was the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. It sounds like an interesting book on what makes a person the person he is - outlying factors. Why do people with similar backgrounds end up with such different lives? Why do some people "make it" and others do not? Being a people person, I am always fascinated by people and their backgrounds. To me what is really fascinating is knowing that no matter what our background or how we grew up, we can be who we want to be - "No excuses!" Sure, things such as family, social economics, friends, etc. all play a role in shaping our lives. Although my brothers and sister grew up in basically the same household, we are all very different. Personally, I think that it is the power of God working in your life that causes real change. Hmm, pretty deep topic, but you are welcome to sound off on it.
Also, Jesse was wearing her Air Force T-shirt when I got home - so I took a pic of her. That T-shirt is sure looking ratty, but it has been a favorite. I remember when we bought it shopping on Sheppard Air Force Base with my uncle - Wow, how time flies.
