Heading out to take photos today hopefully, but in the meantime, this was my photo from one year ago today. I like looking back….I rediscover from of my favourite photos.
Tomorrow, my daughter turns 21. I truly wish her all the things in the Irish Blessing below…..
And sunshine light your day
May songbirds serenade you
Every step along the way
May a rainbow run beside you
In a sky that’s always blue
And may happiness fill your heart
Each day your whole life through
May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks
May your heart be as light as a song
May each day bring you bright, happy hours
That stay with you all the year long
I was flipping through old photos and found this shot, from September, 2012, which reminds me of the title block for one of my favourite blogs, Raising My Rainbow.
The writer of this blog, Lori Duron, has just been published and her book, of the same name as her blog, is about her son, C.J., and, as she says, the “adventures in raising a fabulous, gender creative son”. I have recommended this blog in the past and I also recommend her book. Although the book is specifically about raising C.J., it is more generally about how to be an amazing human being and parent.
Decided to play a bit with this one as I loved the bottom part of the rose, but there was too much light on the top. Not really into processing much….because I don’t really know how to do it…..but didn’t want to discard the shot.
