I had gone out early to catch a sunrise
all I caught were clouds and misty moments
I turned round to go home
when I looked back I saw these amazing misty sunrays!
A textured wooden step in a garden attracted my attention
because of this beautiful pale green leaf.
I cleaned my pens
polished the nibs
and found a stock of decorated paper.
I have decided to write more handwritten letters
and reinitiate the art of handwriting
into my life.
Just feeling the pen gliding effortlessly across the smooth paper
makes me remember how good that feels.
Slowing down to notice the charming moments in each day.
This little toddler pulling her big shopping bag
made everyone smile.
Seeking the shade in the middle of the day
and being thankful for a parasol
which framed the fluffy blue clouds
like little thought forms drifting away from me
and leaving my mind free to revel in the moment.
The latest book of one of my favourite authors
whose stories are based on true historical facts
with a story woven between them.
Tracy Chevalier is the well-known author of
'Girl with a Pearl Earring.'
BENEATH MY FEET
The soft earth and sweet clover
where the early evening breeze created my skirt to billow out
Strawberries and raspberries: the taste of summer
This year, I've joined the August Break group for the first time.
The group is organized by Susannah Conway
" This is a community project that has no real rules -
the idea is to simply take a photograph every day
for the whole of August.
Pause, look around you and shoot what you see.
Live inside each moment.
Pay attention to what's there."
We get daily prompts
and they are the words written in capital letters.
For the whole of August, I'll be doing a daily posting on Flickr
and a weekly posting here.
