The last day of September already. The year has flown by and so has this past week. But I did get something together for the Scavenger Hunt. The prompts are yellow, getting ready, bright, teeny tiny and connections. Here you go…
YELLOW: That’s kind of an easy one this time of year in Massachusetts.
GETTING READY: We are leaving later this week for a trip to the Almalfi Coast in Italy. I am definitely not ready at all but I do have a couple of books and my passport. It’s a step in the right direction.
BRIGHT: I was wandering around the other day and I noticed the sun on a bunch of ferns. The light seemed to pick out this one particular frond. I love that. It brightened my day.
TEENY TINY: The seeds on a burning bush are teeny tiny. That does not hamper them from spreading themselves all over the place. This is a non-native, invasive species in Massachusetts and if you aren’t careful, they get to be a bit insidious. Beautiful though they are…that’s not a good thing.
CONNECTIONS: We live in a wired world these days and through the wires we make lots of connections. Sometimes it seems like a bad thing but mostly I feel like it has made the world a smaller place. I am hoping these connections will some day help us to learn to live together as friends and to accept our differences as part of the wonder of the world.
Here’s an aside that I found amusing in this really pretty awful photo of my very messy desk. I didn’t notice it until I was editing this picture. My phone says “Barb Fully Charged.” If you knew me at all, you would laugh, because I have never been accused of being “fully charged” by any one. I tend to be more “partly charged” or “in need of a charge.” I figure that's why there is coffee in the world. Oh, well….
