Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art

The mother hen in me is usually paying attention to the younger generation. Sometimes my feathers get ruffled by what I see and hear. But, I am often inspired by them as well. I was a timid individual for many years, so when I talk to and hear about their plans to take on a challenge of going across country or hiking, or tackling college for many years, I am impressed by their determination. Here is my take on cover art for a book or album. The song that came to mind for this challenge was Footloose by Kenny Loggins. I will add my own two cents and call it Footloose and Fancy Free. I pulled it out of my archives from a time we were on our way to Washington. I can see this young couple driving across the US looking for the next big wave, Footloose and Fancy Free.

Texture Tuesday

kk_times213-005Awestruck! Having been a former California resident, I am really liking the vibrant colors that Fall has brought to Oregon. Today I am linking to Kim’s Tuesday Texture. I so look forward to it each week.

Why, Why, Why?

Today our world is all abuzz with questions…The why’s of many unanswered questions.

DSC_0032-002Look at the two little faces on the left. They appear to be looking at me. I wonder what they are thinking?

Texture Tuesday

It’s Simple Things  for today’s Texture Tuesday. Bikes are one of my all time favorites to photograph, among many other things. It’s a wonderful mode of transportation and a fun and healthy activity for families and individuals.

Woman Cave

I recently overheard a man talk about his man cave. We were eating breakfast at a small cafe and squeezed in together like sardines. It was not hard to hear him describe it. Later I thought that all he needed was a small window that slid open for his wife to put his meals in it. Truth is that we all need our space. A place to be still or busy with creativity, to ponder, read or just be in the moment and take in the world around us. For me that can be anywhere. Yes, it’s nice to have a room to retreat to, but I can also be ok, sitting on our sofa with my feet propped up, coffee cup in hand and gazing out the window. My little space and place. Anyway, here are a few photos of what my woman cave might look like..
