Eastern Standard Time Equals Central Daylight Savings Time

3/8/15 Sunday in Robertsdale, AL (Wilderness RV-RPI ($13/night))

Kind of neat timing: we’ve been living on EST since the last “daylight savings” switch, so now we are in the Central Time Zone when everyone changes to the “spring forward” version of time, so our “stomach time” is the same as it was when we were in Florida!

The church in Robertsdale (St. Patrick’s) struck me as earthy. When you walk in all the light is coming through lovely stained glass windows so it’s not real bright. It was SO quiet, it seemed something was absorbing the sound, even when we all were singing. Very peaceful. Hard to hear the 3 person choir but we all heard the organ. A good way to encourage everyone to sing, I think.  Unique altar as well:


We decided this would be a day of rest after yesterday, so we relaxed with our usual activities. Starting with the Gonzaga vs San Francisco game from last night: they won, thank heavens, by 11 points. I got ambitious and baked granola bars and hard boiled eggs while John watched sports on TV.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
