shhh… a collection of silent moments

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the life of a Mom silence is a precious thing. I cherish the moments knowing that the moments will stretch into longer and longer times as they grow older.  (I try not to think too much about that…it brings sadness into my cherished silence.)

I had several photos to pick from as silence and quiet moments are very much needed for me to recharge. I seek silence daily.

The WordPress photo challenge was to show what silence looks like. What do your moments of silence look like?

WP Photo Challenge: New Horizon

Looking ahead to 2017… I’m not anticipating any major changes but life is definitely unpredictable !  As for my wee little blog I’ll have to put some more thought into what I want to happen with my blog. Lately I haven’t taken many photos and I do want to get back to that.

Perhaps it’s not so much changing my blog as rejuvenating it. More photos…more photo challenges… more thought into the photos I take.

I’ll have to wait and see what 2017 brings. For now what’s on the horizon isn’t very clear.


Never have I found the limits of the photographic potential. Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals another beckoning in the distance. Always, I am on the threshold. ~ W. Eugene Smith

If we were having coffee ~ Foggy

If we were having coffee, I’d offer you a warm cuppa to take the chill off. The damp afternoon feels that much more chilly when you realise we were wearing t-shirts only a couple days ago.

I’d also be offering an apology. I have not felt social these past few weeks. I’m sorry that I haven’t invited you over for coffee and tea.

I haven’t done much blogging at all. I re-blogged a few stories about Hour of Code and some of the history of computer science.  It’s so important for our kids to learn about coding and computers.

I just haven’t felt … connected. I haven’t taken that many photos either over the past couple months either. Perhaps that’s why the lack of connection is also in the photo challenges.

20161117_083016I haven’t been particularly busy either. Just hiding away; feeling a little foggy. I’ve taken a few more photos these last few days and started crocheting again. (I think my crochet blog has dust on it! eek). Kind of like the weather a few days ago. It was light and warming up but the fog hung close to the ground.

I feel foggy like this photo. I can see the road and where it’s going I’m just not sure of what it will look like.

What’s the ‘mental’ weather like for you? Rays of sunshine, drifting unique crystals ..?


Thank you to Part Time Monster for hosting this challenge.

H2O ~ WP Photo Challenge

I love taking photos of water. It’s “that photo” I am always trying to capture.

“Water never waits. It changes shape and floes around things, and finds the secret paths no one else thought about __ the tiny hole through the roof or the bottom of a box. There’s no doubt it’s the most versatile of the five elements. It can wash away earth, it can put out fire; it can wear a piece of metal down and can sweep it away. Even wood, which is its natural complement, can’survive without being nurtured by water.”   ― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha
