Not so trivial maybe...

I admit it. I read the Bible. And I love reading it. There's not another book that feeds my soul like this one. I was reading Ezekiel this morning and came to the line that said "Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing." I had 2 fig trees in my back yard ('had' because I inadvertently murdered one last year; I am still grieving over it and thinking I ought to be charged with a crime), so I did some google searching to see what modern thought was about fig tree leaves. What I found is pretty gosh durn amazing:
I'm going to go pick some fig leaves, dry them and save them for my morning tea. Couldn't hurt, could it?

I also came upon the benefits of olive tree leaves, none of which I happen to have in my back yard, but I was fascinated by the benefits of those leaves too. I'm wondering about pear leaves now, which I do have in my yard. Back to google now...

Just thought it was cool information to share.

As for the pastels here, they're hanging tonight at Sue Stewart Fine Art in Charleston, SC, where there is a First Friday Gallery Hop. If you're in the area, drop in please. Although I had planned on being there tonight, a nasty cold has set me back and I dare not share these germs. I know exactly where I got it--on my plane ride home from New York recently. The girl to the right of me sniffled and wiped her nose continually through the trip, and the guy on my left coughed. The whole time. I knew, just knew I'd be paying for that within days. And I did. Still am. Thus, the search for healing leaves today.
