Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Ephemeral: 
adjective 
1. Lasting for a very short time.

Show us what ephemeral means to you. It could be a dry leaf floating on an errant breeze, the sleep-floppy smile of your waking three-year-old, or the cake that turned out just right before the hungry hordes descend on it.

One day (on 12/12/14) while returning from a late afternoon walk around the neighborhood I witnessed this majestically beautiful rainbow right over my home ❤  I froze in my tracks and could only look up in wonder, completely lost in this beautiful gift of the Present moment.  My heart was instantly filled with ineffable Peace to see such a timely reminder from my Angels that All Is Well. ❤

Aum ~ Peace ~ Amen

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story

Image

For this week’s challenge, we want you to become a documentary photographer and attempt to capture a candid moment of a person, place, or thing. Put your National Geographic hat on and tell a story by documenting a moment in time through a single image. Capture the thrill of a skate park, or the calmness of a café patio. Let your imagination inspire and guide you!

 

La Jolla SunsetSun sets over Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, California.  Bird celebrates.  Human celebrates.  I celebrate.  Sky and Clouds celebrate with their Royal Dance of Colors across the heavens announcing the nearing departure of Sun.  Ocean sparkles and glistens reflecting the majesty of All.  Day moves into Night.  And All Is Well.

Weekly Photo Challenge:  Selfie

For this challenge, snap a selfie with your cameraphone or camera.  A selfie doesn’t have to be all about you; it can reveal much more, given the elements you choose to include.

Life is GoodThe above selfie was taken during a trip my boyfriend and I took in June of 2013 to Cambria, California and Hearst Castle.  It was a wonderful 2 night trip and our hotel was directly across the street from the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: One ~ Snail

Weekly Photo Challenge:  One
(This week, we want to see photos that focus on one thing.)

So there’s this snail ….. and It visited me one morning while I was meditating underneath the lemon tree.  I didn’t see It until after I had opened my eyes.  Under the influence of my meditation, Snail and I bonded.  We were One.

Snail

In the One Moment, I felt the cold sidewalk underneath my snail belly and it felt good.  I felt the morning dew penetrating through my strong but delicate snail shell body and it felt good.  I smiled my little snail smile as I looked up at this human version of my snail self and it felt good.

The Lovers Trees
somewhere along the Saratoga Gap Trail in Northern California

Lovers Trees

While hiking Saratoga Gap trail in Saratoga, California one afternoon, I came upon these stunning trees.  They halted me in my tracks as though I had accidentally snuck upon two Lovers making out in the forest.  Of course, my Lover and I felt it would be disrespectful to the Lovers Trees if we didn’t pause during our hike and make out a little too. 😉  Mother Nature has so much to teach us, if only we will listen……

Aum ~ Peace ~ Amen

Daily Prompt:  Ready, Set, Go

Set a timer for ten minutes. Open a new post. Start the timer, and start writing. When the timer goes off, publish. 

Tick.  Tock.  Tick.  Tock.  ……. Nine (9) minutes left to go and I still have no idea what I’m going to write about.   [deep sigh]

I look around my desk for inspiration and realize how it looks like a tornado has passed over my desk.  [another deep sigh]Image
