For Sunday Sketches and Creative Every Day 



For Shadow Shot Sunday ~ 



Two Days of Haiku for Carpe Diem ~ prompt, 'Lion, Maiden'  4-7 and 4-8



Cape Ann MA ~ Sailboat and old Birdseye Building for Mosaic Monday and Blue Monday



Life has been busy on Cape Ann MA with creative tasks and events as well as the 'every day' sacred ones we all have. Perhaps, yes, it is all sacred, each day is the gift of time. Transitions happen slowly and sometimes quickly moment by moment. I have felt the weariness of 'transition' recently but ever grateful as I continue to move on my path. Trying to remember 'down time' is good and all part of the life cycle.

We are linked with these creative bloggers:

happy blue monday


Wishing you the best in each day. xxooo

  3. your pix are always fresh and interestingly captured....I love the 'background' for your haiku - is it a photo of yours, or just a texture?
    My fav is the Chinese painting - looks like silkscreen.,,

  36. Thanks for sharing these blues. I especially like that shade of blue on the door jam.

    Happy Blue Monday, Carol.

  37. Thanks for your comment Carol, I remember my grandmother wearing aprons like these. Times were different then. Even though she had a very substantial life style I would bet her closet wasn't bulging with clothes. What have our closets come to? I saw one on HGTV yesterday that was big as my very large bedroom. HA! I do wear aprons as I disclosed in my post, but not like my grandma way back when. They were like a mini dress over her dress. She never wore anything else.

    Your photos are lovely. Especially your pretty blues. The quote was awesome and my feelings exactly.
    xo, Jeanne
