I was making a follow-up appointment for my uncle at the eye doctor when these beautiful hearts caught my eye. I asked about them, and the receptionist told me one of their customers carved them himself - out of avocado pits!!!
What a wonderful idea!
I asked if I could take a picture of them and she said yes. I don't remember her name, but I thank her from the bottom of my avocado pit!!!
I didn't notice the fortune taped in front of the hearts until later. It reads "You find beauty in ordinary things. Appreciate this gift." Perfect.

I came across the Portland Farmers Market quite by accident while waiting for my uncle to have cataract surgery. It was jammed with people (lunch hour and all). The merchants were doing a booming business.
I found this container filled with beautiful cabbages. As I looked closer, I saw the heart.

One of the first rules I set for myself for this blog was that I cannot set up a shot of a heart. They have to be unexpected, random shots that I find by accident.
This heart could have been set up, but it wasn't! It was sitting on the tarp covering the woodpile - just as you see it!
I could hardly believe it was just waiting for me.

Another log met the log splitter!
To become a warm fire,
Heating our house, protecting us from the cold.
To see a heart here was the last thing I expected.
I enlarged the picture to see the details ...
and found another teensy tiny heart, just to the left of the one I first saw.
Today I am blessed.
Today I am warm.
In more ways than one.

Sometimes a heart
Is just a vague impression
Set in concrete
Or a reflection
If you move just a little
It can disappear
Or you may never see it at all.
Which is probably why I see "random" hearts
Instead of just "obvious" ones.
