I Heart Macro 93
True story: Blue icicles so beautiful; funny how our perspective shifted dramatically in realization that they were in cahoots with an ice dam over my beloved's side of the bed. The rhythmic sound might otherwise be a soothing lullaby, if each cold drop was not bouncing off the windowsill dancing center stage upon his head.
Fat, flakes are falling now, more steadily with each word I type. We are only expecting 3”-6”. Not a big deal. It is predicted that the temperatures will continue fluctuating quite a bit over the next week however. Despite my husband’s hard work raking and tossing up calcium chloride ice melt pucks and cc filled stockings, suggestions from friends who’ve lived in New England longer than we have and the assistance of instructive YouTube videos; this freezing, warming pas de deux, along with the snow and ice remaining on the roof means that it is likely the water torture will continue a little bit longer. My poor guy has tirelessly tried all of these strategies and still ends up with it dripping on his head. Personally, my favorite suggestion came from my mother in Florida (she is healing well from her bout of pancreatitis, for those who have asked). She recommended that he wears a plastic shower cap to bed each night! The good news is that once the temperature drops enough the dripping stops.
As much as I enjoy the loveliness of viewing the snow and playing in it with the dog, snowshoeing with camera at the ready, (and lets face it, I’m not the one who has to plow and shovel and roof rake... I have it so easy!) I am grateful that it is March and for the noticeably increasing sunlight each day.
Welcome to Week Ninety-Three
I Heart Macro
"Pure awareness transcends thinking... It allows you to look at the world once again with open eyes. And when you do so, a sense of wonder and quiet contentment begins to reappear in your life."~Mark Williams and Danny Pennman, from Mindfulness An Eight-Week Plan For Finding Peace In A Frantic World
It is time for YOU to share the love up-close with YOUR
I Heart Macro offerings!
Enjoy slowing down with your camera, paying full attention, observing beauty and curiosities many people pass right by. Your generosity of spirit and keen eyes may open the door to miniscule miracles and mirth others would not have access to otherwise. Feel free to include poetry, prose and thoughts your macro photo or series inspire(s) in you. Writing is completely optional for participation. Straight out of the camera (SOC), edited, color, black and white, anything goes as long as you bring the viewer near to whatever it is that drew your heart's attention and "woke you up" to full presence.
