Activity . . . or the lack of . . .

We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ACTIVITY.

My activities on a sort-of-daily basis:

studying, reading, working (paying job), cooking, loving, caring, caressing, driving.

I luuuurv to read. I read to get away from it all. I read to relax and to go someplace else even if it’s only in my head. As I’ve mentioned before, I am an obsessive-compulsive-reader. I read everything. If it doesn’t interest me, but catches my eye, I will read it – ads, posters, signs, etc. Luckily I curb that with a good book – one that I want to read.

The lack of activity in our house:

Can anything be funny, or are some things off limits?

Standout . . .

When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us STANDOUT.

I do not do crowds and I do not like being in the spotlight.

Thus, the photo:

This is standout.

PS: My little camera did not want to play that day, thus the photos were taken with my old BlackBerry phone.

Search terms . . .

One of the latest search terms that brought people to my blog, was “i have no hope”.

My immediate reaction: Yeah, me neither.

My conditioned response: Where there’s life, there’s hope.

My inner response: What are we without hope?

Pat on the back . . .

Tell someone you’re proud of just how proud you are.

I am proud of my husband. I am proud of the man he’s become. A man of integrity and responsibility, of worth and intellect.

I’m sure his father would agree.
