LDS General Conference weekend. It's a great opportunity to just basically do something different.
On this trip, my grandma and I went exploring up Zion's canyon and stopped at some of the delightful shops along the way. We got some delicious bumbleberry icecream, took pictures of the beautiful red rock, and of course, discovered the delightful metal creatures that live in the desert.
We've got our metal owl, metal lion, metal lobster, metal kitty cat, and that delightful robotic frog with a metal fly caught in its trap. Some good fun.
I really admire those with these types of artisan skills. I think it requires a tremendous amount of patience...something I don't have. But whatever it is that you create--whether it's a metal lobster, a spinach salad, or a smile on someone else's face--remember that you have taken disorder and made something beautiful, which means the world is a more beautiful place because you're in it.
And because there are metal lions and owls and lobsters.
