In the spirit of TBT ( translation: throw back Thursday) I went browsing for something in my past post up. I found myself drawn into rereading the flash fiction I created just by looking into a photo and speculating. I enjoyed doing this challenge. It only made me love writing even more. So I share with you my TBT WordPress Weekly Writing Challenge: A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words- Mother. I hope you enjoy reading my story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Signs are everywhere in life. Some signs are physical and tangible like when you want to head to a business or take a road trip reading the passing signs to count off the minutes before you arrive to your destination. Some signs are more personal like signs for answered prayers, the plant you finally grew without killing it, or the sign of the rising or setting of the sun letting you know you’re alive. There are signs that your relationship is over, or you need to move on to the next step…. Read More
La Porte, Texas is a small town near Galveston Bay plays an important part in American History. The San Jacinto Battles Grounds is a historic attraction that kept up by the Texas Parks & Wildlife agency. The photo of the Battleship Texas was taken during our housing hunting expeditions to Houston (believe me we had more than a few expeditions). I added in the Mexican soldier (played so well by hubby) to portray “endurance”. Endurance is a hardcore ingredient when it comes to the making of American history. The battleship tour will… Read More
I enjoy traveling because learning becomes interactive. My visit to Jamaica revealed that poverty is real. In the United States people can go most of their life without seeing or meeting homeless. However, that is getting more difficult as economies remain unstable. I was impressed with the Jamaican people, that no matter the difficulties of their struggles, the Jamaicans are a positive and resilient people. In Montego, Jamaica stands a statue of Samuel Sharpe,a revered freedom fighter against slavery. Sharpe, a leader in abolishing slavery in Jamaica, and aided towards eventual independence from Britain. “…Jamaica slaves… Read More
The train ride was too long, about 6 hours…but the girls couldn’t wait for it to be over. My hubby took the time to enjoy the passing scenery. Now the adventures once we got to Venice that’s another story!
Focusing is not always easy to do especially when you have other things catching your eye. As one gets older it is easy to look back and focus on the things we should have done. However the past is the past, and the only changes we can make now is in the present which puts focus on our future. So focus on your present because this will not fix the past but at least you won’t repeat it (or at least we hope not to). I hope you enjoy the images I… Read More
The human brain is fascinating in that it can process so many things at once. However, the best way to take things in is to slow down and see the world from all angles. #brouhaha-access, #Amsterdam, #cobblestones, #Germany Related articles Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways (thethirdeyeworld.com) Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways (wordswewomenwrite.wordpress.com) Amsterdam on the Cheap: The Budget Travelers Guide to Amsterdam (budgettravel.answers.com) Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways (Garden of the Gods) (skpfoto.com) weekly photo challenge – one shot, two ways (timetobeinspired.ca) Weekly Photo Challenges: One… Read More
What better way to show what might foreshadow our minds than dark vs light? Or is it good vs evil? Only our own conscience knows that truth.

Masterpieces are not hard to find. It’s just that we need to slow down enough to appreciate them. My favorite part about Europe is how much they love to display their art around the city. You could stroll down a small residential alley way just to find a masterpiece when rounding the corner.

When I think of something refreshing water and breezes always come to mind. I love the way water can cool you inside and out. The way the soft breezes can caress your skin causing it to tingle and come alive. I enjoyed the times I spent in these waters. I hope that there will be another moment in my lifetime when I will again enjoy their refreshing beauty. For a closer look just click on the photo and experience fresh.

There is always a time in the day, week, or month when we stop what we’re doing and exhale. In this moment we become more observant and see what we might have missed in our daily lives. I saw this rainbow after waking from a mid-afternoon nap. I woke opening my window to see the rainbow streaked sky. It was a nice view to wake up to, and as I stood there for a few moments more I thought of all the other people who might be seeing the same sight. I… Read More

There are things in this world which we take for granted as being delicate. There are the clouds in the sky which are diaphanous looking on a beautiful sunny day. Yet when the skies become angry the clouds can turn dark and brooding, no longer looking like the delicate wisp of cotton balls in the sky. Beautiful geese roams the river banks in Amsterdam. Their “oh so white” downy feathers bring to mind, being wrapped in down comforters, on cozy days and nights. However, nature has a resiliency that is endowed for the survival of the… Read More
