My World Monday

Back from Hawaii to the chill and gloom.

But I did find a little color
to capture with my lens
while I was there.

It always amazes me how quickly sunsets happen.

As you can see, we were there during "swells,"
which meant no swimming on many beaches,
but provided lots of opportunities for
experienced surfers.

I'm a goner for color and decay,
so this grabbed my attention.

What's going on in your world?

True Words Tuesday: Thoughts

"Prisoner of Her Thoughts" - created on by MeriMagic 

Life does not consist mainly --
or even largely --
of facts and happenings.

It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts
that are forever blowing
through one's mind.

**Mark Twain**

My World Monday: Color Study

I keep coming back to this shade
of teal blue
over and over.

It speaks to my heart.

Postcards from Paradise

For today's

I thought I'd take a wander
through things I've seen close to home
that I captured with the Android cam.

I drive my friends nuts
because my phone's usually off
and I hate texting.

But it's a handy dandy thing
to have a device that is small,
discreet, and picture-snapping.

Sometimes the big camera 
is just to heavy to lug around.

52 Photos Project: Fade Away

The theme for the 52 Photos Project
is "fade away."

So many times, we've become trapped in the prison
of our fears.

We think we can't accomplish something,
that nothing ever works out,
that everyone else has all the luck.

We think idle thoughts that don't serve us,
instead of choosing to be more selective.

Once we become conscious of our thoughts
and how they shape our reality,
influence how we show up in the world
and make an impact,
we can choose differently.

We can catch ourselves thinking
an unhelpful thought,
then release it.
Let it fade away.

And choose to think thoughts
that better serve us.

Good-bye fears.
I'm bringing a better thought life
into sharp focus.
