I could never get this close to any bird in the wild but these two birds were captured inside a snow globe and a Christmas ornament.

Walking through the mall it’s nice to have natural daylight stream through the windows.
….a new photo challenge
Going through my emails this morning I discovered that two blogging friends have started a new photo challenge and are inviting bloggers from around the world to join in. One of the bloggers is Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere and the other is Amanda from Something to Ponder About.
This week’s theme is inspiration. What inspires me? There are so many things; my husband inspires me with his daily drawings, other artists inspire me, photos from around the world inspire me to travel, my friends inspire me to be a better person, reading books inspire me, music inspires me, etc., etc..
I saw these two sculptures at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto last week. They inspire me to get my hands on some clay and mold an image from my imagination. The only thing holding me back is not having access to a kiln.
I sit here procrastinating
Waiting for tomorrow
Work surrounds me, waiting to be done
Things need to be sorted and put away
But I wait
Is it the unknown of what tomorrow brings
or do I need this time to reflect on happier times
or just be thankful for every precious moment
….time to get back to work
It will make the waiting go faster

What are small stones?
A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the “alive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. In short … OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!
