I was excited to take part in this prompt (almost a day late), so I scanned through my images thinking I would find something rustic, like a tree in the woods. I saw the folder […]
Everything seemed brand new before, Our hearts were filled with laughter, But time has silenced what we had, And we’re caught in the morning after. Honestly, I expected my “write something new every day” resolution […]
First of all, I want to say “Hello… it is good to be back!” Even if it’s only momentarily. For now. It’s been a little over a month since I’ve been active here on the […]
I’m reminded, Of my younger days… Growing up, Was on my mind… A house, A yard, And picket fence. The perfect mate, I hoped to find. I’m reminded, Of growing older… Staying young, Was my […]
One thing becomes clearer as one gets older and one’s fishing experience increases, and that is the paramount importance of one’s fishing companions. I’ve had this image of some fishermen hanging out for a while […]
Franky with a “Y” For anyone just joining, this is an ongoing short story (that is slowly becoming long-er). It was written in my Creative Writing class a year ago, and I’m sharing (and editing) […]
Before I dig into any New Lifestyle, New Me updates, I thought I’d share some thoughts I’ve had on this COVID-19 dilemma, social distancing, and how it’s helping me come up with some new ideas. […]
This chair was abandoned on a bridge near my house and I thought of the Pull up a Seat Photo Challenge (2020 Week 12) when I saw it. It’s an interesting setting with all of […]

What a wonderful day it is!
First things first. I got my hands on some new filters for Photoshop (thanks to a fellow blogger). Now that my options have increased… so have my ideas. This is going to be a great week!
Sprouts that is.
Actually… I had no idea WHAT this plant was when I decided to use it in my Garden Art. This may be one of the last pieces in that series, too. For now anyway. I started working at two (very small) part time jobs, so when you add that to school, things are starting to get hectic.
Little blueberry blossoms, like tiny church bells… shining in their glory.
I’ve had some cool insights and exciting ideas while thinking about the Alphabet Game, and I must say that the letter “P” has been one of the most enlightening thus far.
BUT… I have to back up and talk about the “M” word first… Memories. I realize now that some things really ARE worth forgetting—mainly things that I learned (or absorbed into my unconscious) when I was younger.

Looking at your past is not a bad thing. Not to brood over it, but to cherish fond memories; see what you’ve done right (and wrong); and to learn from your past mistakes.
