an unknown artist created this mixed media mural on a wall
outside a vacant office building I saw from the highway
driving through a small town on a recent road trip
surprise...screech...stop
snap...smile

smiling at shadows



brief moments as the sun arrives for the day

on this day

I thought about transition

marveled at the parallel of nature and life

one pot..one plant that hummingbirds feast upon

each branch in varying degrees of change

...blooms.growth.colors.shapes...

just like me

adventure calls to me
with lyrical words on torn paper
a light heart held by a wisp of thread

autumn breezes blowing through the trees

for her everywhere

one year ago one of my best friends
was in the depths of chemotherapy treating breast cancer
I took a piece of tissue paper & fashioned it into a ribbon
for the month of October snapped daily photos of it
in unusual spots around my home and garden
then posted them in my sidebar each day
pink in blue

nothing monumental or earth shattering, even a little strange I suppose
but the moments spent taking varied photos I felt involved visually
it was my small way to honor her strength and courage
to meditate on Julie and so many others

afternoon color

365 days later
Julie is doing well
I look forward to sharing
a few of last year's photos along
with friends and our hostess Christina
