Abandoned Memories

I walk down the middle
Of a dark dingy hallway
At the end of the hall
I step into a room
One stark white bulb
Creates dancing shadows
Dust and cobwebs prove
This room has been ignored
I cross the room
To the table on the other side
Finding what I was looking for
A black box with gold letters
The only thing left
Of a life past
Treasured memories I hold so dear
I turn off the light
And leave the house
For the last time
This part of my past
Dead and gone

Happy and Grateful – Day 54

This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself.  I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day.  There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment.  Please try to find those moments for yourself too…  if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog.  Being aware can really turn a day around!

The nicest part of a day outside for a walk is the day after I can spend editing my photos.  It was a short walk, but I still had photos.  And when I am editing photos I tend to go through some of my older photos and it feels like I get a second day to be happily in nature that way.

Today was grey, raining off and on and much cooler.  I only had one appointment to keep with my therapist so I was not running all over town.  I was grateful to have that escape with the time working on my photos.  I will share one of my past captures to give us all a little of spring…

Day 33 – 100 Days of Happiness

A third of the way through this challenge and I refuse to get stuck now!  I would say my moment of happiness was in the little bit of “work” I did today.  I did a little cleaning up of my photographs and saved some to my flash drive that I know I want to keep to edit and maybe print.  I love taking pictures and ultimately would like to come up with a poem and photography book… it is a dream.

So sorting picture files today made me happy… here is a little happiness I captured in nature to share with you.  (((HUGS)))
