Steeples


Over the last couple of years, I have decided to take note of things that I really like.
Now, that might sound silly. Still sounds silly to me when I say it out loud.
But I've mostly been the girl that "goes along" or "gets along" ~ as a child doing what was expected.
As an adult, the "should" voices were the loudest in my mind...what I "should" do, eat, feel, like etc.

So, learning to hear my own voice has been a monumental victory!
I've learned that I love all things cranberry ~ the color, the actual berries...both for eating and decorating!
I've learned that I love sunflowers and scrapbooking and camping ... and that it's ok not to like lettuce!

I'm adding to my list today.
I really like steeples.
Especially the simple ones.

To me, the simpler ones seem not to care much if I notice them...
They just help me lift my eyes.

Looking at that steeple throughout the mass of blooms is absolutely heavenly. I, too, am attracted to steeples, but I find it hard to get captures of them I really like. Sometimes I need to lie on the ground and shoot up to keep out all the gradoo of a college town. Too much “stuff” to ruin my photos. You did a wonderful job with this one. It is lovely. Thanks for the visit. genie

oh adrienne, what a gorgeous view. i have been dancing to a different tune for a long time. for years i could not share my joy with others, i was always teased about my crafty, organizing, gardening ways!! that i LOVED being home, cleaning and puttering around.

through blogging i have found many people who enjoy the same things i do, so many people who are just like me. now i dance out in the open, i don't care if people call me martha stewart....i just smile and say "i wish"!!!
