The Art of Blogging

from a lively spark creativity rises
movement takes form
in so many surprises
rich
vast
simple
enhanced
expressions unique
art

Yea, there is a whole crowd of us celebrating!
Look at all those little mushrooms.

The lovely fairy slipper for me is all about celebration:


A year has come full circle and I celebrate the one year anniversary of my blog!
Whew Hoo!!!
I offer Heart felt gratitude for all the fun
support
inspiration and company you have all given me
throughout this past year.


I was shy to have a blog
to share my love and passion for life
with
a sphere of unmet people
I have to say I have enjoyed this living artful experience
which has been rich in wonderful connections
and has been a sweet muse in my life
with all my heart I thank you
For without you, my blogfriends, my blog would be incomplete!


The watery image with circles is a lake at sunset, Spirit Lake in B.C. Canada.
The final image is a wee wild Orchid.


Sunday Scribblings theme is Art
Scenic Sunday for more scenic images
Today's Flowers for more lovely flowers

  59. Like paschal, I have to ask: has it really been so long? Having you along makes the journey lighter--and a lot more fun!

    Beautiful photos. I love those mushrooms, I really do. But I think you might need to get a pair of fairy slippers to match the one you've shown. For dancing, you know.

    It's been a wonderful year -- congratulation!
