I tend to be a dichotomous person. I sometimes exhibit characteristics that seem diametrically opposed, such as having purple hair and being a homeschool mom. And writing extensively on the internet but never mentioning politics (in a serious manner, anyway.)
Opposites make me extraordinarily balanced. Right?
Because of that extreme personality balance, I take photos of sunsets and seek out the most beautiful vistas, and I take photos of roadkill (after giving them props of course, because roadkill-only pictures would just be downright lazy.)
I appreciate the beauty in both – the most lovely of scenery and the most deranged of humor.
And this year, you, too, can remember whichever one you want – all year long. Because I have them BOTH available in calendar form.
It’s kind of like a personality test. Which calendar brings you happiness? A reminder that the beauties of fall will come again,
or inspiring quotes to remind you that New Year’s Resolutions will kill you?
or a possum reminding you that the right oils can cure anything?
Do you need more poetic views in your life,
Or an uptick in poetic mice?
Both calendars support great causes – 100% of the profits of the Roadkill calendars are donated to The WellHouse (who rescues and cares for victims of human trafficking), and all of the profits of the Birmingham calendar are split between The WellHouse and Mission Birmingham (who works with local businesses and government to support the transformation of Birmingham and caring for its resident’s needs.)
So whether you find your most joyful place from Cahaba Lilies in a rushing river,
or from a chipmunk reimagined as a massive terror,
you will be helping others.
They’re both five dollars off through the end of the week, and either are perfect for wedding presents, Dirty Santa gifts, and baby showers. Or even in lieu of flowers at funerals, depending on the personality of the deceased. Or maybe not funerals.
