It seems as it is that a lot of times things do happen all at once. Like when you've got nothing special planned for weeks on end, then suddenly you've got six things to do on one weekend. So what about that, Albert?!
Well ... actually, this is the first day of spring and the flowers are most definitely saying 'Not yet!'. And
in regard to winter being over, we are also hearing "not yet". Life is filled with "Not Yets".
I sometimes wonder why I am so drawn to water, being a farm girl raised in heart of the country. As a child I gravitated to the creek, as a teenager to the lake, and now it is the sea that calls me. There seems to be an inate pull to water for most of us - a connection to life.
It looks like I was 'peeping Tomming' these folks, but I don't take pictures of windows of house where people live. I'm drawn to the ones whose families have left them. The curtains here speak of better days and perhaps the chance of a new morning.
This seems like a kind of dark and heavy thing to say ... the 'day by dragging day' part. That's why I picked the gray photo. The jist and sentiment behind it is relevant, even though he didn't come up with a very upbeat way to share it.
Spring is a week today, but we are still in the throes of winter. Life is indeed sacred, but I am getting hungry for blossoms and fragrance. The lovely thing about photographs, it brings it back and keeps us going until it's reality again.
Who wants to creep along the ground, really? All negative connotations associated with that - snakes, rats, bugs ... creepy. But SOAR ... now there is a word that speaks ofs freedom and grace and adventure.
When I'm taking a photograph of a building, I consider it a major bonus if I can capture a bird in just the right spot. It takes patience and good luck as it's hard to talk them into a 'do over' or have them shift just a little bit to the left. Got this guy in Ireland in the spring, in the nick of time.
In honour and celebration of the birth of W.I.N.G.S., this week will be dedicated to Soaring. WINGS stands for 'Women in Networking Groups Soar' - the brainchild of my eldest child. The inaugural meeting takes place Thursday with a full house.
New computer. That's well and good and happy, but it's taking me awhile to get all the programs established again. Will come back and fill in last week when I can find out what word would be appropriate. Patience perhaps.
Unfortunatey ... HUGELY unfortunately ... I have had a catastrophic crash. Fatal. The computer ... not me. So, actually it could be much more unfortunate. In the scheme of things it's just a major inconvenience.
However ... that means all my pictures are frozen in a useless paperweight. Although I shouldn't talk about my trusty computer like that - it has served me well.
I do have them backed up with an online service. Now all I have to do is buy a new computer and figure out how to suck them back again.
