Seems this week is Hansi Week here on BE Currie. I am using this photograph for APR#35, and I used another for Texture Tuesday The Dream eDition. I am wondering if I can find another to use for Photo Art Friday as the suggestion is a piece that is "a digitally manipulated still life" [as opposed to simply a still life photograph]. We'll just have to see.
Anyway, Now that I found this I am, to my deLIGHT, feeling a little more in the Spirit of the Season. This photo was truly a gift of serendipity, caught in a flurry of photographs I took Christmas Eve Morning when I stopped by for a little something something Christmas-something with my friends!! It was my sweetest slice of Christmas 2009, catching little Mr. Man in such a JOYous blink of rapture!!
Christmas, for me, is a quiet time. No plans. No TO-DO at all. Yet here's the thing I realised from this prompt and invitation to wonder. It is, truly, a time in my heart. A place I can go in a blink, a place where memories dance and weave themselves together. I have had quite a large number of Christmases over 59 years, and this week they've all been whispering their sweetest memories to me.
Thanks so much, Jenn, for this prompt. I wasn't sure it was "for me" and then I decided to let that thought out the door. Your invitation has given me a pleasant pause, a sweet smile, and happy heart...
