My reflections of life fresh from the clothesline.

A trip to the Zoo
Did I ever tell you that I am a wannabe photographer? Truly, if money didn't matter and my passion could pay the bills, I would be jet-setting the world taking pictures to my heart's delight. But since that's not a possibility at the moment, I'll satisfy this passion by posting my photos here :-)
Here are a few pictures which captured my Sunday afternoon.
My princess... age 7 ... soon to be 8.
This picture was taken from a koi pond. I love the reflection ... heck... I love this whole picture. It screams Florida to me. Florida's famous flamingos.The kiddos age 11 & nearly 8. Boy they grow up so fast.
Is it me? Or am I the one of the lonely who still feel comfort in hanging my clothes on a real clothesline? For me, it gives me time to take things down a notch. To feel the warmth of the sun on my skin and hear the birds sing. To see flowers growing in my backyard in different stages of their lifecycles. And more importantly, time to reflect. Listen to my inner thoughts that the busyness of life drowns out during the day. A time to reconnect with my thoughts and to visit memories of my childhood and to somehow feel connected to generations of the women of my family. My clothesline ... a simple but complex blessing of my life.
