Creating Something New

Creating Something New

  “There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” ― Sophia Loren     This week’s photo challenge had us looking for something new along with themes […]

Walking A True Path

Walking A True Path

This post was originally published 9/24/13 on Vision and Verb.  I am updating it a bit at the end. “Only by its own roots does a tree stand tall and only by its own light does the sun shine brightly and bring life to our world. So it is with you – only when you’re trusting, […]

Creativity in Monochrome

Creativity in Monochrome

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”― Rumi     This week’s photo challenge had us using black and white photography one day.  I have played a bit with monochrome photos in winter, but not when there is so much color around me.  So even though the other words […]

You Need To Listen To Me

You Need To Listen To Me

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” ― Ernest Hemingway     As summer wanes, the silence increases.  Little birdsong is left as many parents and young ones get ready for the trip South.  Crickets and locust still continue their chirping day and night, but the frogs’ croaking has lessened as well.   With the movement now […]

Using Creativity

Using Creativity

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” ― Maya Angelou   This was an interesting week with the photo challenge.  The words were different and difficult for this photographer who usually only takes pictures of gardens and critters in nature.   Words and phrases like in my bag, drink, on the table, hands, […]

Being Peace

Being Peace

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.” ― Dalai Lama XIV     I am forever the peace-maker.  As a middle child, I avoided conflict and tried to help everyone get along.  I even became a certified mediator to further […]

Creative Challenges

Creative Challenges

  “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ― Albert Einstein   This week’s photo challenge was indeed a creative endeavor with words like orange, three and reflection.  For the most part, I take photos of my garden and the critters that visit.  But for this challenge, I needed to branch out […]

Risen From The Flames

Risen From The Flames

  “None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.”  ~ Gail Godwin   I never thought I would be one of those people I had read about who was beaten down by life through stress.  Or that a job’s stress would impair my health.  Growing up we would […]

And Now For Something Creative…

And Now For Something Creative…

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”   ~Eleanor Roosevelt   I recently took an online photography course from Tammy Strobel@Rowdy Kittens.  I wanted to dig in more and expand my horizons.  And at the end […]

Favorite Quote This Week:

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” ~ Aristotle
