I was looking at the rock in the center when I took this. But now in the photograph, it’s the circle around the rock that interests me. An interesting metaphor: what are we missing when we focus on one thing or one person? All the surroundings?
Angels can take peculiar form.
This is for my Ragtag Daily Prompt: angel.
These Strangels are spotted at the Kinetic Sculpture Race in 2015.
This is during the water trial, to make sure that they float. The sculptures have to be human powered and have to move on land, through mud and through water. The water temperature is between 50-55 degrees, which is cold.
We have angelic Kinetic Kops too. Sometimes the structures look so peculiar that people forget that they can weigh tons. You do not want to be run over by one.
Hooray for Strangels and all the other racers. I hope Kinetic can happen in 2022.
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.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving.
My daughter precleaned and neatened the kitchen. We shopped in the morning after choosing the final menu. We made stuffing together. I did the turkey. She made garlic mashed potatoes, carrots and a really delightful cranberry sauce with cayenne. I made the gravy, brussel sprouts and celeriac and our friends brought two beautiful pies! Apple and pumpkin!
My daughter set the table after trying multiple tablecloths. She also washed pans and bowls as we cooked. Our guests helped with cleanup as I dismantled the turkey. Turkey broth is done this morning and they left us pie. Pie for breakfast and all cleaned up!
Have a delightful day and rest of the weekend.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: friend.
Malene has known me since she was in college with my parents. Since I was a baby. I know her children and grandchildren as well…. friends.
Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary is part of Rotary District 5020. This district includes the Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island, two countries. I am at the District 5020 Training and Conference, sitting next to the East Jefferson President and getting education and inspiration from our District Governor Craig Gillis. Excellent and inspiring!
I took this walking in the early morning alone when I was visiting friends in Wisconsin this month.
I traveled to Maryland to see my son and for some reason it was a reptile trip. Turtles and sea turtles and skinks, both in the wild and in the aquarium.
See the tapered snout? See the netting? Don’t try to pat this one, ok? Snapper….
For the Daily Prompt: taper.
This is for Thursday doors.
