Life is a Dance

I love to see a beautifully choreographed dance with highly trained and disciplined dancers. It’s magical, spectacular and awe inspiring. But I also love to see spontaneous dance, natural dance, people just enjoying the moment and expressing themselves to the beat of music. There is an enormous range of dance possibilities between these two extremes,…

State of Mind

I wish I could say that my state of mind is peaceful, but at the moment it is not. I can not describe what is going on in my head right now except perhaps with these pictures. A little drizzly, unclear, muddy even. Unfocused? No, I am very focused. I have to be to get…

The End Is The Beginning

What is a new year? A long time ago someone decided to mark time in this way and we continue to imagine it to be so. But what if someone decided to mark time differently? Why does the new year not start on the first day of spring? That would make more sense to me.…

Re-Fresh-ing my Wall

I’ve been a bit behind in terms of posting here lately, so today is catch up day. Sharing photos for last weeks WordPress Photo Challenge – Wall, and this weeks challenge – Fresh. Yes, two posts with one click. Somehow they fit well together, because I have to keep my Wall Fresh. I use the…

They become similar, yet they are so different. Thoughts, hearts, minds converge, are changed yet remain the same. For more on Converge: from The Daily Post – Weekly…

Only Yellow Tulips

Every spring a little patch of red and yellow tulips pop up in my backyard. I didn’t plant them, perhaps it was the previous owner. Regardless of the years, the weeds, the fall leaves that never get raked in that part of the yard, they manage to find their way through. This year I found…

New Challenge

Winter is a difficult time for me physically, mentally and emotionally, so I try to find ways to challenge myself. In the past I could challenge the physical elements of snow and ice by just getting out there, shoveling, sledding, driving, photographing, whatever. Now I still try to do those things, but less than before…
