photography the sacred everyday

gratitude 30: week 2

15 Nov 2012

well, here we are. halfway through november. already! it’s crazy, isn’t it? time is flying by and we are speeding towards the end of 2012. my brain can’t really comprehend that, so i’ll wait to reflect on that later on in december. but, for now, it is mid-november and holiday decorations are springing up everywhere little by lithe. it’s almost thanksgiving. almost the beginning of advent. and…

it’s almost time to go to the states!!!! only one month left!

but, before i get too ahead of myself. lemme focus on here & now. the present moment. and all that i have been grateful for this past week…

day 8: sleep

it’s true. i’m thankful for laundry days because they end with me sleeping wrapped up in clean sheets. love that.

day 9: holidays

i capital L O V E holidays.

day 10: kindness

i am so lucky to have a cat who cuddles up to me, just to be kind.

day 11: friendship

a little cutie is best friends with her little toys.

day 13: music

in many ways, music is what makes my world go round. my faves this fall: the avett brothers, first aid kit, mumford and sons, and the civil wars. click on the picture to get my fall playlist.

day 14: time

every tuesday i have a chance to sit in a sanctuary in silence. i love this time. most tuesdays i’m alone. but sometimes there are a few others there too. but always, it’s quiet. and peaceful.

day 15: creativity

so true. enough said.

speaking of creativity…  this photo challenge is going quite well for me. it has re-ignited my passion for snapping shots on a daily basis. and  focusing on what i am thankful for is truly a positive mood booster.

so, i’m halfway there. december’s on it’s way & i’m still wondering what i’m gonna do as a photo challenge for december. am i gonna create my own?! and if so, what the heck will i use as prompts? there is something in me that says that it’s time for me to create my own. plus, the challenge of it excites me. to end the year with my own photo challenge… how cool is that? but, then i second guess myself and wonder how i will make it creative, fun, & exciting. what the heck will i use as prompts?! or perhaps i will create the photo challenge, but you all, my readers, can submit an idea for a prompt, and then it’ll be a community-made photo challenge. that could be cool too!

so, what do y’all think? should i try my own? of course i’d share it with all of you & invite you to take part! or should we embark on a photo challenge that we make together? hmm… let me know your ideas/thoughts, and i’ll get back with you on monday with what i’ve decided to do!

love & peace.
