Twisted path to the earth.

We are accustomed to not see a tree’s roots. They grow deep and strong while supporting the tree; hiding its strength in the ground.

This tree shows bravery and determination allowing its roots to be seen.

In this week’s photo challenge, show us something twisted.

My place in the world. (WP Photo Challenge)

This week we were asked …

For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cozy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big city? If landscapes aren’t your thing, you can even explore portraits by playing with scale or fashion.

Let loose and give us a glimpse of who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I once read that ‘what you photograph shows who you are.’  When reviewing my photosP_20180506_115758_vHDR_On I have endless photos of nature. The shapes and textures that provide “scope for the imagination”. I feel the most content surrounded by shades of green and a soft wind kissing my cheeks. My grand scheme seems to be nuzzled up close to the flowers.

One of my favourite signs is from a lookout over the Grand Canyon.  It simply says, ONE MINUTE. DON’T READ. DON’T TALK. NO PHOTOS. JUST LOOK…..AND SEE. It is something that I hope you will do often when you visit our parks or other natural areas in Ontario.  But how about this variation? TWO MINUTES. … Continue reading Soundscapes from across Ontario

Share Your World ~ Lots of Giggles

While I often read Cee’s Share Your World post (and the responses from other bloggers) I rarely share. However, Colline’s response involved Disney and that inspired me!

What was or is your favorite cartoon? 

I guess my answer depends on a time frame and media.

As a teen, I had my high school locker covered in comics. It was covered in comic strips from Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes and For Better, ForWorse.

As a kid, I loved Scooby Doo on t.v.. Then as a young adult, I spent many hours laughing at Animaniacs on t.v.. Once I move to ‘the big screen’ it gets a little harder to pick! It’s definitely a Disney cartoon movie but… it feels like picking a favourite child! Lion King? Aladdin? Lilo & Stitch? Wall-e ? Brave? Frozen? Peter Pan? Cinderella? Beauty & The Beast?

Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?

This is an easier question to answer. My digital meat thermometer! I don’t consider myself a cooker-person, so I’m always second-guessing the doneness of my meat.

Would you dare to sleep in a haunted house overnight?

I agree with Colline here. I couldn’t sleep in a haunted house as they are portrayed on t.v. however, I have stayed in hotels that are said to be haunted. Sadly, with no tale to tell.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

Little Miss with Eggs.jpgLast weekend even though our daughter is just about finished her second year in university and our son is finishing grade 11 they still want to hunt for eggs. I’m not sure who giggled the most… the kids or my hubby.

The mix of plastic eggs included white eggs! My hubby insisted this was because Sunday was also April Fools Day and he hid the eggs accordingly.
