The old girl’s ride home after her “Senior Check-up.”
After an exhausting morning of bloodwork, other invasive testing (if you catch my drift), and getting her nails clipped, my pooch initially would not let me get in the driver’s seat. After I explained that she needed a driver’s license, she begrudgingly moved into the passenger’s seat.
Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Today, I resume my Wisdom Wednesday quotes. (I first began in January of 2014… the 22nd to be specific, and stopped in July of the same year.) As I was thinking about which quote I would use today, I thought about all the Wisdom I’ve found in songs.
Dream On, “very possibly the best song ever written” (as my kids often heard me say) has been a favorite of mine since I put endless quarters in the juke box at Pizza Hut to hear it over and over again.
It is now the music on my alarm to wake me up in the morning. Tyler wrote these lyrics when he was young. I suspect they are more true for him now, than they were back then. I know they are for me. Now is all we have, so sing for whatever is going on in your life. It goes by “like dusk to dawn.”
As I walked my dog this morning, before dawn, the frost glittered on the grass. I began thinking about the gifts I get as a result of being an early riser. I get the quiet solitude of being the only one awake in my apartment. I get those productive hours without interruption.
I get not only glittering grass, but a glint of light from a sun just below the horizon. I get the stillness just before nature is fully awake.
We had an unseasonably warm holiday season here, which only spoiled me. As I was choosing my subject for this week’s challenge, this photo took me back to autumn for a moment. Taken back in October with my iPhone 5S. Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge, Week 1: Nature.
This shot wasn’t as clear, as it was shot while on a hay ride, but I liked the subject matter.
My son and I enjoyed a “caramel apple” (sliced Granny Smith apple, vanilla ice cream, nuts, and warm caramel) just before we left. I like the table and pumpkin framing this shot. The taste of the caramel apple was even better!
Taken with my iPhone 5S, using Mono filter. Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Week 3, Black & White. Black & White is one my favorites! I also love shooting everyday objects. I couldn’t help but notice the contrast in my sink this morning.
I liked this shot as well, especially the line, and the “clue.” It was also taken with my iPhone 5S. It is a Shure SM58, that I have recently begun using again (as well as my keyboard). Glad to be back to the weekly challenge!
