Week 1 ~ Flowers (5/365)

I am giving up on my perfectionistic tendencies and posting a somewhat out of focus photo today.

My day started out nice and peaceful while enjoying a morning chaplain's hour with the amazing Quaker pastor, Philip Gulley.   This photo was taken shortly thereafter, near the venue.  I loved their little purple faces all clustered together like a tiny potted family of beings.

It wasn't until I got home (I'm guessing my new no-line bifocals have something to do with the adjustments in my photographic ability!) that I saw how blurry all of my shots were.

Suffice it to say the afternoon and evening unraveled ~ with crises that needed diffusing, boundaries that needing setting, and the emotional recovery necessary after those events.

So here, at 10:30pm, this is what today's post will be.....perfectly imperfect....just like my life!


  1. Sometimes out-of-focus can work to give photos a feeling of being beautifully painted. I think that's the case here. (But I know perfectionism well, and it can definitely be hard to let go of it.)

    I hope your day today is better than your afternoon and evening yesterday. ((Hugs))

  2. Oh...if you had not mentioned that was out of focus, I would have just thought it was creative! :)

    And...Quakers are COOOOOOL. ;)

  3. Thank you both for your kind & encouraging comments. It is wonderful to have you following along on this journey! :)
