30 Days – Day 30: Self

Yesterday, a friend of mine who is a parenting coach wrote on social media about her child’s assignment before Thanksgiving where she was to write about what she was thankful for – but about what traits in herself she was thankful for.  So instead of writing that she was thankful for her house or siblings…

30 Days – Day 29: Attitude

I took this photo before understanding what I was truly catching today which is DJ’s attitude.  I am grateful for her attitude – and even Indigo’s attitude.  While it may drive me crazy sometimes, I appreciate many things.  The first is their attitude that no one can try to fuck with them without consequence.  Then,…

30 Days – Day 28: Pleasure

I could have gone so many directions with this photo prompt.  SO many different directions. But as usually happens, I came across something that surprised me.  I am grateful for the pleasure I feel taking photos of what is reflected in puddles.  I seriously spent about an hour walking along the waterfront taking photos of…

30 Days – Day 21: Challenge

I am grateful of my little challenge – named Maggie – the pitaroo.  She is at least not getting mouthy with me.  Seriously, when she feels she is not being heard, she goes “arr, arr, arr” in a very loud, masculine voice.   She is a lover though. She loves people. Just believes she isn’t…

30 Days – Day 20: Beauty

I am grateful for the beauty of the city of which I have chosen as my home. Even on a rainy, dark night, it shines.  Despite the rain, the traffic, and all, I cannot imagine living anywhere else.
