Daily Photo Challenge: Small

"I wanted to know the name of every stone and flower and insect and bird and beast. I wanted to know where it got its color, where it got its life - but there was no one to tell me." - George Washington Carver

“Green is life and happiness.”

Daily Photo Challenge: Time

"Tick-tock goes the every moving clock."

“Tick-tock goes the every moving clock.”

Today’s photo challenge is time. I chose time because it seems to be on my mind quite often lately. Everything has a deadline, everything is depending on something else to happen before it can come into being. Time, time, time.

A Simple and Perfect Truth

"Only you can make me feel so perfectly and openly free."

“Only you can make me feel so perfectly and openly free.”

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
-Bob Marley

Happy Spring!

f25

It has been awhile since my last post. Life has gotten quite busy as of late. I’ve been writing little story ideas on loose pieces of paper here and there, and hope to maybe complete one for my blog. I should probably update my page’s look. When I signed in today, I looked at my page and thought only of Winter. It’s Spring now, so I need bright colors!

Daily Photo Challenge: Spring

“I've seen spring come to the orchard every year as far back as I can remember and I've never grown tired of it."- Lynn Austin, Hidden Places

– Lynn Austin, Hidden Places

Today’s photo challenge is spring. When I think of spring, I think of new life, the birds, insects and animals who have been hidden away all winter, and the new blossoms and greenery of the Earth. I especially think of cherry blossoms! When I saw this little bee working busily away among these fresh new blossoms, all I could think of was spring!

Daily Photo Challenge: Wildlife

“The only time geese are ever dangerous is when you happen to be standing on the edge of a cliff.”
– Poppy Z. Brite, Lost Souls

Today’s photo challenge is wildlife. Where I am, the Canadian geese are slowly making their way back to wherever they came from. Each winter, the rivers and fields are full of flocks of Canadian geese. Now is the time when many of them disappear, flying back from whence they came. There are a few, however who remain. These geese are the ones I look out for with my camera.
