WINTER AGLOW!

Vibrant is the weekly photo challenge. Following the increasingly dark days of December, I look forward to the bright January sun.
Also, I am amazed by the wonders of winter in the occasional display of hoar frost. Last January, there was a beautiful moment when the landscape was covered in this coat of white.

2015 WINTER MAGIC!

Have a great weekend, All!

2016 LET’S TALK ABOUT IT!

The conversation has started!
This week, after days of build-up, the annual Bell Let’s Talk day is in full gear! This has become an excellent focus for fund-raising to aid mental health awareness with sharing the hashtag #BellLetsTalk.

Media messages are everywhere, with celebrities and individuals sharing their stories and encouragement for people to join together to support mental health.
As I looked out on the sunlit snow this morning on the deck, I saw a chick-a-dee, a woolly-looking black squirrel and a quick moving chipmunk. I wonder if this trio is liking the rather unpredictable winter. Seemed like all is well in this moment.
Then, I noticed an unwritten lined page drawn by the sun’s rays.  
A gentle reminder to write a few words, perhaps? Do you have a story for today? Take a moment to open a file, find a pen & paper, maybe record your voice with an anecdote or two. 
Enjoy the day!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE — OPTIMISTIC!

Welcome to this fresh start for 2016!
In the midst of all the year’s end celebrations, being rather Optimistic, I decided that the new year would be a great time to make a few changes, starting with this blog.
I took a photo of the full moon as it rose. To me, the full moon represents an optimistic note as the  cycle continues. Enjoy!
