Gathering pollen,

buzzing bee’s searching, busy.

Blossoms stand waiting. ~

With all of this staying home stuff, I’ve had some extra time to start looking through some of my older images. This was taken more than a few years ago (2007) when I was contemplating whether I wanted to venture into digital photography. Yes, I can hardly believe that something that I love now was met with having to be dragged… kicking and screaming into the new age. I so loved my Minolta SRT101 at the time, which by the way I still have keeping company on the shelf. You know just in case I may need again someday. So being cautious about my investment, I bought an inexpensive FinePix A340 just to give it a go. By now, I had almost forgotten about this camera until I pulled up the file information on my computer linked to this image.

This jellyfish was shot on a quick road trip stop at the Atlanta Aquarium. I was greatly surprised by this image that was captured. Just proof that some fun things can happen even when you are first learning and really don’t know what you are doing. That is not to say that I have stopped learning as that will never happen. So keep on shooting and happy exploring, but with camera in hand.

The Writers Life: Words

Terre's Blog - Women of All Seasons (10)

Finding the Right Words

Uplifting and bright
today starts early
a new slate for the story.
Mine today,
these hours to come no more.

Some eyes stare at the glass half empty,
but it is half full sparkling and bright,
quenching the writer’s thirst,
the long day creeping into the deep of night.

Pages written or not
is the writer’s plight.
Either way fret not,
for tomorrow is another day
bringing yet another night.

Sunday

U.S. Library of Congress. Norman Rockwell Art - The Golden Rule

This saying or a close form of it is found in many faith traditions from Confucius,  Judaism, Christianity, and probably many others. Whatever your personal beliefs, this is something we can all do our bit to work towards … especially being respectful and kind to one another. Why is something so simply and beautifully stated, so hard to do?

Hope your Sunday is a peaceful and start to a good week. No matter what is going on with you or in your community, we’re all in this together. It is our world and it is what we make it.

Please leave a comment below if you would like to share a positive in your life.  ~ terre 

The Gardener’s Surprise

Terre's Blog - Women of All Seasons (11)

I may not know what a dahlia be,

even if the package lists you as that to be,

But a beautiful, huge lily you are,

it is plain to see … even to novice me. 

 

Thank you for stopping by today and letting me share my garden surprise with you. Hope you are having a lovely day in your neck of the woods on this great planet of ours.
