Tackle It Tuesday and Tones on Tuesday

Old Door at 'Fort'

Welcome to our blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and with my assistant ArtMuseDog explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.

In a previous post I had photos of an area of Cape Ann where I had walked with ArtMuseDog and my camera one day. It was somewhat of a nostalgic walk as well as filling my spirit with creativity. While on this walk, I saw the door above and through the 21st century technology on Picasa, I was quickly able to turn the photo back several years to what the 'look' might have been.
This photo is for Tones for Tuesday where there are excellent photographers altered photos.

The other blog I am sharing with today is Tackle It Tuesday. Here is where the haiku poets share their excellent creativity. Do check it out. It will add a creative feeling to your spirit. Also another poetry blog One Word The prompt was 'waiting. It is below the haiku. The word 'prompt' for today was 'bright'. Below are my haiku:


out of the darkness
 bright light shining upward comes
showing us the way.

the wisest soul light
glows gently every bright charm
softly, quietly.

loud noises pierced
ears ringing, vexations harm
gentle bright words calm.


life more than waiting
being, doing gently
no strife, ease on down.

Wishing you fun and joy in viewing these blogs.
Also wishing you a loving, gentle week.

Hugs and namaste,

  3. "loud noises pierced
    ears ringing, vexations harm
    gentle bright words calm." - loved this part :-)

  4. I like the old worn paint on the door frame. I also like the contrast of the green with the red brick.
