Keep On

Be encouraged! I wrote this late last night dreaming of Africa.
Keep on friends. Let's fight for injustice today. If you cannot get up, fight with words.

Keep On

Short of breathe
We move aside the cutting wind.
We run for hope in spite of it.
We are the color of freedom.

Lost in love
When hope deferred
Makes life seem dim, we sing.
We are the notes in song.

Angry at future's voice
Racing for only one touch.
We pursue today for glorious bliss
Longing for justice in the dust.

Where is love when doubt is here?
Like air our faith is blind.
When babies cry, and mothers leave,
Over rubble and clay they scream for us.
The mess we make, and the wars we play...

Today, we must fight for truth and love,
In speaking, seeking more.
For higher things than worldly dreams,
We enter heavens door.

Despite the doubt, we run for more.
We fight through broken muscles and tattered scars...

We sore. We sing. We paint. We dance. We run. We love.

Keep on mother, father, sister, brother, friend, lover, child.

Keep on.

Today Is The Day...

... To do something with your one wild and precious life. And so, I did. Here is a day in the life of Davy Nicole. I hope you will all be inspired to get out there and do something! :)

... To be joyful...

To smell the flowers in your backyard!

To Gear Up...

To Escape...

To Eagle Landing Park.

Avoid biking on the trail...

To make sure you take a good Asian picture of the doggy litter sign...

To climb down 264 stairs, and then back up...

To wade in the wild waters...

To make new friends...

Eat something delicious...

Time to make homemade Nutella!!

Boil 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water...

Toast the nuts on a lined pan at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes... Remove the black shells by rubbing the cooled hazelnuts with a paper towel or cloth. (some skins are ok)...

Put them in the grinder with the sugar water or carmel if it caramelized its ok.

Start the engine...

Add 1/2 tsp. Vanilla and 1/2 Tsp. salt...

While you're waiting clean something out.... (Spice cabinet needed help).

Play the piano while waiting for the toasting goodness.

Do a little exercise before inserting way more calories than you burn in your body...

Time for testing and eating... :)

Time for Jaring...

A visit from my dear friend Timmy. At this point I decide he looks like he is depleted of valuable electrolytes. The kind that are only found in the nastiest beer in your fridge. It works every time for the purification of your house and helping energize your friends. ;)

Discuss mundanely important topics in my kitchen...

This is the point where I zone out and begin dreaming of Africa!!

After a while it's time to attend the neighborhood block party. And yes, I ate too much.

I have amazing neighbors.


The firemen visit us ( and eat our food ) ...

As the sun goes down, we decide that shuffle board is in rout.
So... we head down to our local brewery for a nice game and fun times.

I lose.

What. A. Day.
It is time to wrap it up and pray I sleep like this baby...

And THAT is how you make a normal day amazing!!
Give thanks for this is the day the Lord has made! I WILL rejoice!

Love and Hope, Davy Nicole
