I've been off the computer most of the week. It's a busy time of the year. I did manage to take some iPhone photos to complete the Scavenger Hunt. They tell a story of my life and my week.
Thanks to Ashley Sisk who hosts the meme.
I've been wearing glasses since first grade. They've become an important part of who I am. I like funky glasses. This week I visited my favorite glasses gals at SEE eyewear. I'm thinking maybe a round shape would be a fun change. My problem is it's hard to envision what they'd look like on my face, since I don't see very well without my prescription lenses. I think horn-rimmed might make me look very wise...
I took this photo while walking to dinner with my husband in Cherry Creek, Denver. The acrobats look physically fit, but balance seems to be the key to their strength.
I believe strength is relative and hinges on balance. Beside the physical, there are also emotional and mental strengths. There is strength of character. At times when I feel most strong, I know I have achieved balance in the diverse aspects of my life.
When I was a little girl, I loved to play with my Mom's button bag. It was a cloth bag covered with embroidered leaves and stems, topped with fanciful button flowers. It was filled with hundreds of different buttons in varied sizes, colors, shapes, and textures. I remembered the bag when I told my granddaughter that I needed to photograph buttons. She brought me her Mommy's button jar, and we poured them onto the coffee table to admired the multitude of shapes and colors.
I'm reminded that the memories we hold most dear may be as simple as buttons.
I often say that I live on the fringe of a vast wilderness. Here is a map that proves it. The red pin is my house, and the rugged mountainous terrain all around it is my playground. The photo is of a 3-D electronic map taken off the iPad, showing Breckenridge and the surrounding National Forest.
The Satsuma tangerine has arrived at my local market. I like seeing them piled in a pretty bowl on my kitchen table. However, I like them even better as a treat.
My Cardiologist appointment is on Monday. I'm always a little nervous for this annual physical.
I hope to be strong and in balance.
