Focus on Life Wk 43~In the Shadows

Week 43~Oh My!

This has been a dull, gray week here in central has rained, and rained, and rained, and rained, and.....well, you know. We get about an hour of sunshine a day (as I am on the way to work, usually) and that's about it. Consequently, I've had to cheat a bit and use a photo I took last week, while in Charlotte for Sally's prompt, which was:

"This week, capture what you find intriguing about light and shadows"

While not a photo from this week, it IS one I love......

Loved the effect of the reflection of the clouds in the skyscraper, and also the juxtaposition of the old statue with the new skyscraper

Hope you like it too! 

Be sure to visit the others and see what THEY found intriguing!

Focus on Life Wk 42 ~ All in a Day

Another really appropriate prompt for me this does Sally know??! 

This week, she said:

"Let's focus on 24 hours and see what goes on in your day!"

Well, I couldn't really say that the 24 hours I'll be focusing on are a typical day....but they certainly were a fun one! 

Here's 24 hours in Charlotte:

Be sure and check out the other participants' 24 hourses! (is TOO a word!)

Focus on Life Wk 41 ~ Connections

I am late, I am late, for a very important date...or actually BECAUSE OF a very important date!

Our National Inclusion Project Gala took place in Charlotte, NC last weekend and I was a leeeetle tied up, in a very good way.

 Our prompt from Sally for this week couldn't have been more appropriate:

"We all have, make, witness connections every day; connecting to one another makes us feel that we are part of something more, something great! This week, focus on the connections you make, the connections that naturally occur, a connection of things, your connection to your environment, craft, faith."

The weekend was all about making connections, but this is a very important one to me. The first picture was taken in 2004, in Charlotte NC on October 16th. I am on the left, Diane Bubel is on the right. 

Diane is the co-founder of the National Inclusion Project, for which I have worked for the last 10 years; the picture above was the first day we met. 

The picture below was taken at our Gala, on October 12th, 2013 in Charlotte, NC. I told Diane I wanted a do-over! 

A little older, a little better dressed....still friends!

Focus on Life~Week 40!!

Forty!! Ohmygoodness, we're getting near the end! I can't believe 2013 is 40 weeks gone already...

Sally's prompt for us this week was:

"Everyone can use a smile....this week, focus on the positive and give us a smile!"

I apologize in advance for having to keep going back to my Maine pictures...but the madness continues here, and my only day off this week was a monsoon, so my planned trip to the Farmer's Market for pumpkin faces! 

OTOH, this smile is so infectious...and if that motorcycle helmet doesn't give you a laugh today, nothing will! Be sure to click on it to see! 

This gentleman rolled up to our car just as we were leaving Nubble Lighthouse, and we couldn't resist him...and YES, that IS a hamburger helmet on his head! 

Hope everyone has a wonderful week FULL of sure to visit the others!
