Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/05/17/photo-challenge-escape/

 

A true escape would be a beach in Mexico or Costa Rica with my husband.  Since that isn’t in our immediate future, my escape is my iMac, along with my iPad and phone.  My friends on WordPress and Facebook are like Calgon … they take me away!

My beloved conservatory grand piano.  The pattern of the keys has been imprinted on my brain since the age of six.

All below eye level every day and often taken for granted!

Change is what life’s all about …

Old House

I can feel the mix of emotions experienced by the farm wife who, through the wonder of a time machine, finds herself standing in front of her former home — the one she watched her raw new husband build board by board, then furnished with the bare necessities of life and swept daily with a crude broom in order to keep the dust to a dull roar.  I see her sending her stoic farmer for the mid-wife and birthing their babies in the same bed where they were made out of love and awkwardness-turned-to-familiarity.  I see her well-tended garden gone to ruin and reclaimed by the elements.  Her disbelief.  Her chagrin.  The ache in her heart.  The incomprehensible change that overtook it all once she was out of the picture.

I see the change in my own life, moving from painful to sweet, that has brought me to the man who pulls off the highway, drives down a dirt road, and treks across a wheat field because he spots just the photograph I need for my blog.

I try to open-heartedly embrace change since I learned years ago that it’s what life’s all about.  Once you get that far, it all becomes infinitely simpler to deal with.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/weekly-photo-challenge-color/

Color is such an intrinsic part of daily life we almost … almost … take it for granted.  These are colorful objects from my desk that add to my happiness every day.
