Why should I wait for love when I can find it.
Yet it appears I find it in the smile on
your face and a child’s joyful laughter
complete, resplendent, never far away,
calling to me during times of war and peace.

 

I feel that I must share this series at a time when many would question whether there was any good in this world.

The frequency with which we view violence and hate in our everyday lives leads us to believe that love is a myth. However, there are people out there that do know what love is all about. Perhaps you’ve met some along the way. They appreciate you, support your efforts, and are encouraged by your success.

Sweethearts are wonderful. We all wish we had one.
However, in their absence, we can remain appreciative. Take the time this weekend to remind the special, giving people in your life how much you care.

Let’s kill those Valentines’ blues.

Have a blessed weekend and a joyful week!
Remember always, to live life creatively!

A Silent Dedication To The Tough But Tender

Hard yet gentle

Strength holds fragile love in its grasp

This our subtle flower

Guarded by a crown

I’d like to take a little time out this busy fall weekend to dedicate this photo collage to all the tough but tender folks in the world. Sometimes they reveal difficult truths to save us from our own destruction. At first, this makes us angry and we scoff at their timeworn advice. Later, we realize their love was real not conditional. They helped us become the older, wiser people that we are today. If you are moved to share this dedication with a loved one in their honor, take the precious opportunity that life presents. However, if your loved one is no longer with us, take this moment of silence to reflect on the impact they made in your life.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend

❤️ As always, don’t forget to live life creatively!

Love waits patiently….

Closer than wondering minds can percieve

Nearer still, if you dare to believe

 

I feel that I must share this series at a time when many would question whether there was any good in this world. The frequency with which we view violence and hate in our everyday lives would lead us to believe that love is a myth, an outdated set of rules our grandparents were forced to adhere to. However, there are people out there that do know what love is all about. Perhaps you have met some along the way. They accept you for who you are, support you during difficult times and are encouraged by your success. I kindly ask that this weekend, or sometime this coming week, you let the special, loving people in your life know just how much you appreciate their presence and contribution to your life.

Have a blessed weekend and a joyful week!

Remember always, to live life creatively!

 

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Mysterious Landscapes

Millions of stars stand on each others heads. Prickly fingers dare to grasp the pulsing light of the midday sun.  Their constant companionship wins friends, loves the first breath of spring and keeps close the color of life ensured.

What does this object remind you of?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ordinary Objects That Look Like Colorful Landscapes

VIOLET ORCHID LOVE copy

Violet folds gather together. Their grace is evident, though the affair is brief. They are not like the rest of us, surrendering their beauty to foreseen frailties. That is the advantage of being plastic and soulless, having no light but giving the appearance of life. Not content to blossom in their time, they chose to remain vicious pretenders. Stealing love from those that weep in darkness, their faces will meet the dust of succeeding ages. All false gods die not to a celebratory march, but instead to the convenient and constant failing of memory.

This photo was taken from an object that we bought to decorate my mother’s room.  The price was right. She loved it. We bought it. She is such a fan of purple. Every time I see the color, I think of her and her contribution to our lives. The lighting was dim, but I was able to shoot a couple of photographs that I felt best illustrated the theme that this object brought to mind.  Several times in our lives, we are saddened by the fact that we do not appear to have what society tell us that we need to have in order to be considered worthy.  Some people appear to “have it all”, but appearances are not always reality. Sometimes a beautiful face hides great evil.   What does this object remind you of?
