Stories in the Sand


Have you ever noticed what incredible artwork the tide creates all by itself?
I love the trees in the sand above. At least I see trees. Maybe you see something else.

Some people create beautiful artwork in sand too, and even tell stories through the pictures they make. Have you seen the video going around of artist Kseniya Simonova in action? She won 2009's Ukraine's Got Talent. (And no, I'm not joking. It's a real show, showcasing amazing artists, if the rest of them are anything like Simonova.) Please take a minute or two to watch it. It's some of the most fascinating storytelling you'll ever see!



Have a great Wednesday, y'all!
Love, Becky

It starts off kind of slow, but I promise it's worth watching. Skip ahead and see.

One more thing...a word of explanation. She's showing how ordinary people in her homeland were affected by the German invasion in World War II.

I have to show that to my kids! Makes me want to play in the sand, over a light box of course ;)

Oh, that makes me yearn for some nice warm sand. Darn, the Ponderosa is under about six inches of melting snow right now. Oh, well this chick will put it on the back burner.

Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day from the hills and hollers of the Ozarks!!!
