Day 9: Fave Photo of 2015
Day 9: Fave Photo of 2015

I’ve been very fortunate to capture many spectacular sunsets and scenic nature shots this year but these two trying out the camera on my new phone the other day still capture my heart.

I’ve decided to participate in Susannah Conway’s December Reflections  photo prompts again this year. During this hectic and stressful season, won’t you join me in mindful reflection from life’s photographic window seats and contemplative comments that provide refuge from the madness.

Full Disclosure

Day 8: 5 Things About Me
Day 8: 5 Things About Me

In the social media madness of carefully coiffed pictorial coverage, I’m as guilty as the next of curating my image. So in the spirit of complete disclosure, what are 5 things about me “really”?

1. I’m 55 and have absolutely no idea what the frigg I’m doing. Still.

2. I hate the way I look in photographs. (My elementary school pics could and have been used as blackmail.)

3. There are days when I don’t really take off my pajamas. (See photo for case in point.)

4. Caused partly by my reluctance to undress in front of my cat. (See number 3.)

5. Due to many years serving the public as teacher and librarian, I’m an extrovert who is rapidly becoming a grumpy, eccentric introvert in my old age. (Think human version of Grumpy Cat.)

There, it’s out and now I can go back to swilling directly out of a can in my bathrobe. (Photo taken prior to no-beer AIP diet.)

Reach for the Sky

Day 7: Branches
Day 7: Branches

I needed the tree branches’ reassuring reach to guide me through the fog this morning and pull my eyes up into that bright blue ozone.

Sacred Souvenirs

Day 5: Sacred Space
Day 5: Sacred Space

My life’s souvenirs of bits and pieces, joys, discoveries, messages, intentions, prayers, promises, solace. Collected reminders that sacred space is all around, and everywhere to be found.

Day 2: Hot Drink

Singing the dairy-free blues today with black coffee in a blue mug near my new blue Christmas tree. I’ll miss the eggnog and hot chocolate this year but there’s always Kahlua for my hot drink.

Sparkle

Day 1: Sparkle

The first of December calls for pulling out decorations and unwrapping memories that never lose their luster.

Buddha in My Bag

Day 28: In My Bag

He may be a bit grubby, a little nicked and scratched after ten years, but he’s still keeping me and my keys together.

Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again. I’m looking forward to my third go at participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break by posting prompts here on the blog and on my Instagram account. There are no rules, really. Simply take a photo every day for the month of August, based on the prompts or not. I take a photo a day all year long, but you can’t lose no matter how many days you keep this up. And the more, the merrier!

Avocado Dream

Day 27: Favorite Recipe

Bring avocados (at least two), garlic (plenty), lemon (no wimpy lime for me), a dollop of prepared salsa (yeah, I’m lazy), an enormous bowl full of chips (now we’re talkin’), and a large margarita on the rocks together — and you will have my undivided attention.

Outshining the Competition

Day 24: In The Distance

There is a moment during every night game when the artificial lights come up and believe they outshine the setting sun. How wrong they are.

Day 6: Notebook

I have filled many journals heavy with joy, and burdened books set in sorrow, but I always feel lighter after I sit down and write.
