I am frantically trying to get the house ready for the movers who are coming next week, so I could do with a bit of simplicity about now. This week, Ailsa’s photo challenge on her blog Where’s my backpack? is all about clean, simple photographs. Here are a few that I think fit the bill…
Daibutsu, The Great Buddha, Kamakura
Giraffe sculpture, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Burford, England
Duck on the Oxford Canal, Cropredy, England
Ceiling light at Broughton Castle, near Banbury, England
The Eagle has landed, Ambleside Pier, the Lake District, England
I want to be a writer, yet Henry David Thoreau's cautionary words echo in my brain: "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." Knowing I have promised to blog daily for the coming year, I am committed to living the next 365 days to the fullest by seizing new opportunities, making old routines less mundane, and immersing myself in the details of ordinary situations. Building these habits will be key to convincing myself that I can legitimately sit down to write a future bestseller!
