Consistency (Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge)

                  Cricket, symbol of good luck, taken with my iPhone 5S.

It’s been awhile since I’ve entered Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge. The subject of the first week of each month is Nature. This reminded me of this picture I took recently. Even though I don’t believe in luck, I snapped the photo of this little guy to remind me to focus on good fortune… good fortune I will create.

I believe “good luck” comes to those who consistently do the next right thing over time. So now I think of the cricket as a symbol of consistency, as opposed to luck.

Words (Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge)

Last week I received a handwritten note from a spiritual leader. His words expressed a confidence in me that I am only beginning to grow into.  I was telling an artist friend about it and we began talking about the importance of words.

She excused herself and came back with the treasure in this photo. She said she hadn’t initially known why she bought it, but now she was certain.  She included a handwritten note on the back of a piece of paper on which she had painted, and gave me the box.

This whole encounter inspired a longer written piece which I will post later. In the meantime, I loved the light in the top photo. It echoes the sentiment, “Radiate Sunshine.” And I always love black & white.
