Photo Challenge 2016- Work

The photo prompt for this week is ‘work.’  Oddly enough, I find myself with time off from work.  It has been amazing.   Of course, I made a bunch of lofty promises to myself about how productive I was going to be with my vacation. There is a lot to do around the homestead to make way for…

Photo Challenge 2016- Reflection

Back to last fall with my photo, Reflection. I had gotten in kind of a reflection rut.  I just couldn’t stop looking down to see the sky.  It lasted through the winter.  There are worse problems to have I guess.  Like not knowing how to spell ‘winter.’ Be well!

Photo Challenge 2016- Path

Growing up the martial arts community it is almost impossible for me to think of “a path” without the concept of the Tao or Dao.  Contrary to the notion of a well defined boulevard or road The Way or The Path has always been explained to me as more of an attitude than a plan. It is not…

Photo Challenge 2016- Secret

There have been others in this challenge who have already addressed the fact that if you show something to someone- it is no longer secret.  Thus, I will not explain my entree. It is a secret!

Photo Challenge 2016- Friends

I have been blessed throughout my life with great friends.  In my early adulthood; I was elated to find that my family and I all had/have, true and close friendships filled with love and silliness. When I widen my focus I see many life long connections with amazing people. I had the great fortune to meet and marry my…

Photo Challenge 2016- Spring

This challenge has once again given me a chuckle and serious pause for thought at the same time. Yesterday we got almost six inches and snow…On the second day of spring. Yah, New England weather. This resulted in my pictures for the prompt being chuck-full of juxtaposition.  In fact, it was kind of hard for me…

Photo Challenge 2016- Outline

Sheep ATTACK!!! Most days when the sheep are done munching around the yard they come to the sliding glass door and try to get in.  Sometimes they just lay down and wait for someone to notice them. Other times they will knock on the glass with their hoofs, insisting someone pay attention NOW! I don’t like this behavior…

Photo Challenge- Extra

Extra. Currently,  the word evokes strong- conflicting emotions. There is a constant battle inside my head over how I perceive my reality and judge my efforts. It seems like there is never enough.  Not time, money, energy or anything for that matter.  Any effort that’s exerted, comes up short.  My schedule is filled with ‘those days.’  The ones…

Photo Challenge- Tension

As the land thaws and spring approaches- there are many interesting moments on the homestead.  I picked the picture below for the word of the week “tension.”  Thus far the two roosters have shown little aggression towards each other, but then again I have been keeping them apart. Only time will tell as they grow if they will stay…

2016 Photo Challenge- Home.

I have never participated in any of the online challenges that circulate the web.  This is not for any particular reason other than laziness.  Until now… The Aran Artisan is one of my favorite blogs.  Melissa is a native Mainer (basically from the next town over from us) who moved to Inas Mor, a small island…
