One Little Word 2011
First off I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog. I know there are a lot of blogs out there and you only have so much time to be hanging out in cyberspace! To thank you for your time I'll be giving away two little goodie bags of embellishments. To be entered into the drawing just leave a comment! Check back on Wednesday, November 2nd for the 2 lucky winners' names.
So, on to our October prompt........
At the beginning of the month it feels like I have all the time in the world to work on a fairly simple & straightforward prompt from Ali to take 9 photos that show how your word is part of your life or the meaning your word has brought to your life. Ali asked us to think about what we would specifically like to happen in the next 3 months of this year. I took these 4 photos at the beginning of the month and then lost track of my word as I became immersed in other projects. Right now, it feels like the month just zipped right by and here I am, unprepared, for another blog hop! Since I missed one month totally I've decided I'm participating each month whether I'm prepared or not.
So I'm still on the lookout for 4 more photos for this prompt. The card in the center spot holds a quote that I came across that really spoke to me. It says "When I shine it lights the way for others". I'm not sure who the author is - I'm going to have to research it. I'm determined to make sure everything is finished up by the end of the year and soon it will be time to start thinking of next year's word.

ADDENDUM: For Julie Ann who asked for more information on my photos (thank you! for making me stretch and think!)-
Julie Ann - the photo of my shadow I felt represented me in the dark looking to the light which is how I felt at the beginning of the year - I was looking for answers to a variety of things. The light bursting through the trees in the early morning seemed like the way I felt when answers came to me this year). The other 2 photos were taken as I played with photos of light and to me just represent our days and life - they each have some confusion and murky areas and then areas of light. I never take photos like this and wanted to include them to remind me to try different approaches.
