Kleinstuck Preserve - Holga - August 2009

During the month of August I will be participating in Susannah Conway's August Break.
Looking at the month of August through
my lens. While this is supposed to be a "break" from blogging for most, I am using it to get myself into the swing of posting on a regular basis.

I am really looking forward to this project and the inspiration I'm sure it will generate. There is also a Flickr group dedicated to this break - join up and play along!

Intangible ?

Bubble In Hand
Nikon D300

The onset of summer always brings with it the hope of peacefulness, then it comes along and bursts my bubble!

Having the entire summer off may sound like heaven to those that work all through the summer months. However, imagine spending the hottest months of the year in a 100 year old home sans any sort of air conditioning with an extremely active six year old who seems to require constant input!

Admittedly, I have probably made it sound worse than it is; I always start out with the best of intentions. I have Plans of things that we can do together and things that we will accomplish individually. But alas, here it is yet again the end of July and we are ready to call the summer quits. Not really, but you get the idea.

I'm not sure why, but it has become extremely difficult for me to focus on one task. I have so many bubbles up in the air floating around, perhaps it is time for me to let some of them land and POP* recognizing once and for all that life will not play out exactly the way I imagine it will...and that is okay.

Enlightenment is like the moon reflected in a dew drop, the moon does not get wet and the drop is not broken.

When I posted this photo my friend Mark attached this quote. It really struck me and I felt that it required no other words.
