BOUNDARIES…

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.”

We must teach them to children...for their own good

We must teach them to children…for their own good

We must take care with those that cross ours...

We must take care with those that we allow to cross ours…

Respect them in others...for their sake as well as ours (there is a glass boundary here you can bet your life!)

Some come and go with the tide...

Some come and go with the tide…

Some are forever

Some are forever

Whether man made...

Whether man made…

Or by design...

We need them...If only to cross them

We need them…If only to cross them

So…set your boundaries well

Respect other’s boundaries as well

But NEVER let another’s define yours!

Brother can you spare some CHANGE?

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”

CHANGE

What easier way to showcase change than with the seasons. I’ve been known to take a thousand shots of a single mountain because each shot offers something different. Whether it’s the cloud formations that waft over the top, promising changes to come, or the way the sun strikes it on a sunny day vs. the rays that struggle through to kiss the peak on a cloudier one…IMG_0747One of my favorite changes is the coat of brilliant color that adorns it today when, just yesterday, that coat was green and brown…Jay in the distance

And tomorrow, it’ll be gray as ash, soon to be white as snow…snow cappedThe once empty horizon now filled with the winds of change in the form of wind powered turbines.  All in the name of progress and, for some, the sacrifice of beauty…a change some do not like.IMG_0039
But…there’s more to change than the obvious.  Some is predictable, some inevitable, some wanted, some not.
But it’s always coming. We all know this to be true.
Below, a slideshow with photos and thoughts on what I think about change.
I’m not afraid of it.
Much.
But like it or not…it’s coming.
So I’ll celebrate it here.

Please enjoy and thanks.
FOR A CHANGE….R
