52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 19 – View


Can you tell that I love this week’s challenge of The Girl That Dreams Awake‘s 52 Week Photo Challenge? Not only is my blog about having a view, a point of view, but there are so many different ways to enjoy a view.

From above, from down there, from within, through, over, on. But we can only enjoy a view if we look up.

I find that people rush, their views glued on a device in their hand. People don’t look around anymore. They don’t see people anymore, they don’t see places anymore, they don’t see the beauty anymore. It’s time to wake up. Time to look up again. Time to see people again, look them in their eyes, interact again. Time to look around, see the beauty that is out there, see the mountains, the ocean, the birds, the clouds. See the sunsets the rainstorms and the pictures in the clouds. Put your feet in the sand (or the snow).

Be again…

SL-Week 33: Stairs

 When I see a flight of stairs it always reminds me of life. Why? Well… how often do you see yourself on the very bottom of a hill? How often does the climb up seem long? And then you take one step after the other and eventually get to the top. There you will have a better view. And when you look back down you will see where you actually came from…


Children Are Not Like Cookies

While I am sitting here and working on my blog I watch my son doing school and being so focused on what he is just working on. Due to the fact that we home-school I get to watch them a lot and experience how they learn and how they deal with what they have to do. And it amazes me each and every time how different our kids deal with the same tasks.
