Photo Challenge: OBSERVE

I'm rolling along these days. Any forward motion is worth celebrating.

Photo challenges? Always worth celebrating!



Our Cindy is a professional observer and a damn fine one! Go science!



On my way to listen to some poetry I observed this hippo getting some tourist love as she observed/surveyed the sidewalk outside Lincoln Center.

This Saturday is the Grand Finale show of Listen To Your Mother NYC. I'm sad to see it go and grateful to have been a part of it all this time. In celebration of that the next prompt you can either use GRAND or FINALE

Please enter by 9am Tuesday May 16th for posting on Wednesday May 17th. Tag your photos with PHOTO CHALLENGE and GRAND or FINALE. Check out the wonderful work in our Flickr Pool for inspiration. Also, let me know if you have any questions. The  appropriate email for that is Kizzbeth117 at gmail dot com.

Photo Challenge: ABSORB

My two words for the year are observe and absorb. I'm somehow unable to caption the photos for this challenge. They feel like absorb. Here, you'll see.














While we're at it let's use my other word for the next prompt. OBSERVE. Go forth and OBSERVE.

Photo Challenge: WORK/WERK

Funnily enough I just got to join this challenge because I've been working so much! Lucky me. I really am relieved when I have plenty of work. Building a business is scary stuff.



Our Cindy is everything that is light and good about being a scientist. I love that she shared this view of her many facets with us. See also her recent blog post about trusting scientists.


This is what a hard day's work looks like for me now. A dog, her family, plenty of questions, plenty of hands on practice and at the end of it a dog who only wants more!

Off the cuff, let's have the next prompt be ABSORB. Run with it!

Photo Challenge: UPS AND DOWNS

These are wildly varied in a way that I find hard to describe. Good thing we have pictures for that.



Our Ana in Oslo. I'll tell you a secret, her smile is always that big.



This capture by Our Cindy haunts me. In the best way, of course.



Milo had a few ups and downs before I met him but now it's all ups forever. He found the right folks.

Next prompt is WORK (or WERK if you prefer). Bring it!

Photo Challenge: FOR THE LOVE

I'm feeling a lot of love this week so the prompt makes me happy.

Enjoy and please join us for next time! Prompt is below.



Our Cindy knows love when she sees (and feels) it.



I try to take a selfie with each of the kids whenever we're together no matter how crazy my hair because, well, you never know.

I can't even explain why but the next prompt is UPS AND DOWNS. Bring it!

Photo Challenge: DO SOMETHING

I hadn't looked at the Flickr Pool. I had no idea if anyone was still with me. I dreaded the moment.

You're with me! Thank you!

Enjoy these photos. We're doing something and that's amazing.



Our Cindy rallied in MO for women. 



I protested and I have also been knitting for a local school's underserved students.



Our Janet marched in MA for immigrants. 

I thought to myself, "For the love of all that is holy, I don't know what the next prompt should be!" So there you go, FOR THE LOVE. Let that inspire you.

Photo Challenge: SWING

For the record I feel totally out of the swing of things right now. I'm working to right the ship, promise!



Our Cindy gives us the down home family feel. Thanks, I needed that!



I was on an emotional pendulum over the holidays when I was given custody of the photo album from Auntie Blanche's 85th birthday party.


I was just saying today that it's enough to do something. It doesn't have to be big. Let us be the prompt that guides us, DO SOMETHING!

Photo Challenge: Let's Go

I'm getting back in the saddle after celebrating my birthday on Monday. It's nice to have some beauty to keep me going.



From the moment I saw this one by Our Cindy all it makes me think of is my grandparents' camp. I didn't even meet Cindy until long after that camp had been sold and the g'rents gone on to the great camp in the sky. She gets me right in the feels.



This is what I'm greeted with on cold, dark mornings. No amount of encouragement will get him out of bed. So I carry him. Once we get to the street he's willing to walk. At least for a little while.

In honor of getting the hang of this year, getting in the swing of things, if you will. Let's be prompted by SWING. Enjoy!
