Wishing you a colorful and creative week!

Time is...

Time is infinite.
In our youth, time stretches out before us like the Dakota plains.
We have time for fun, learning, college, travel, love, and finding a soul mate.
There's time for our first apartment, job, house, baby's first steps, 
friends, creativity, hiking, camping, and more love.
Life rolls on in film, digital pixels, and polaroids, 
as we capture these moments in photos.
Time seems infinite.

Then a dear friend becomes gravely ill.
Time stands still.
The world turns upside down.
Perception changes.
Time is finite.

It is time to live in the moment ~
say "I love you", hug your child, notice the sunrise and sunset,
 soak up the sun's warmth, the color of blooms, and 
the delicate scent on the breeze.
Use that roll of film on the shelf, take that polaroid of your friend,
do the photo shoot you've been planning, finish a creative project...
because time is finite.

We may only have this year, this month, this week,
this day, this moment ~
to enjoy all that is special to us.

Capture and relish today.
Time is finite.

Simple Gifts

Lately, I've received some simple, special gifts.
Glads from a family friend. 

Plus, colorful postcards in the mail.
The later treat was due to Kat Sloma's Liberate your Art Postcard Swap.
How wonderful to find beauty in my mailbox instead of the usual junk mail and bills!

A big thank you to ~
Leigh, Jenny, Sassy, Tonia, Melissa,
 the mastermind and hard worker behind this project.

Hope your week is filled with creativity and simple gifts!

Beautiful Bokeh

Today, I am a guest contributor at the Shutter Sisters site.
Hope you can stop by, say hi, and soak up some bokeh and bling!

I'm also happy to have one of my photos recognized over at
 Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou's blog, oopoomoo.

Wishing those in the USA a wonderful, relaxing Labor Day.
