Jake is an award winning blogger, graphic artist and photographer. Many of us use his artwork on our blogs (see sidebar badge, “I’m part of post-a-week 2012”). The Jakesprinters badge above, was designed in honor of the Chinese Year of the Dragon. Click on the badge to be whisked away to Jake’s blog, Time After Time. Jake is from Manila, and is a regular visitor to MANY blogs. He is generous and kind with his comments, and I wanted to acknowledge his talents which from time to time grace my blog. So, thank you Jake for sharing so freely of your time and talents. I appreciate the badges that you allow me to use for this site. Kudos to you!
No snow today. No rain either. I noticed. Mostly overcast, but at least the rain held back. The sun shone for a moment here and there, too. I mean it really shone. I stared out the window at the still sodden ground, then glanced at the trees. The contrast between light and shadow was stark, and beautiful. I noticed.
