For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: frost.
I took this in January 2018. The water is not frozen, but it is cold. And the color of the water looks like frost or ice….
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: unaware.
I took photos over the Thanksgiving holiday. With this one I had the camera sitting on the table and was just tilting it up to take photos. People pose less if I don’t hold it in front of my face!
For Norm2.0’s Thursday doors: The lovely carved door for the Wooden Boat Foundation in the early morning, lit by the sun.
The Wooden Boat Foundation is now part of the Northwest Maritime Center, but it was started in 1978 along with the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. You can read the history here. I have been in town for 18 years and my father and my children and I did the family boat building one year. We built a “nuf” light plywood canoe in three days.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: brilliance. The brilliance of the sky reflecting in the water.
I am so blue, Beloved
about the things I can’t heal
about the people I can’t heal
about the relationships I can’t heal
I take my own advice
and walk after clinic
and the beauty of your sky, Beloved
I am with the trees
water water water
blue in the evening light
we only see the surface
of the water
not what is underneath
it reflects the sky
people are like water
we only see the surface
and see ourselves reflected back
my office manager came from hotels
this is so much harder, she says
and I say yes
because we see the depths
this person is behaving badly
yelling on the phone
calling crying yelling
but we both know
how much they are suffering
how much they want help
how they won’t listen or accept help
they want what they want
these people are breaking down
in the holidays stressed
I just long for rest Beloved
For Wordless Wednesday.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: walk.
My daughter was home for Thanksgiving and we went for a daily beach walk.
On Saturday morning my daughter and I caught the 8 am ferry to Whidby Island to return her to college at Bellingham. We are supposed to be there thirty minutes early for our reservation. The sun was rising and the mountains and marina were illuminated, with clouds and fog sliding down.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: vigorous.
Hooray for the sun and the vigorous sunrise. Light and warmth rising. I took this yesterday waiting for the ferry.
For Mundane Monday #186, my theme is cup.
Good morning, and Monday, and post-Thanksgiving, back to work.
What is your favorite cup or mug shot? From an angle, experimental, mundane, accidental? Attach your entry and I will list them next week.
Last week’s theme was balance:
From Paula Light’s lightmotifs: a well balanced kittay.
KLAllendorfer talks about life balance.
