Home: a meditation

For my photography 101 Class I’ve been asked about home.

For me, home is remembering to be centered in myself and breathe.  I’m always home if I remember to be here, inside, aware of my breathing, just being.  Experiencing my senses and being aware.

Walking the dog is a little like meditation.  Except you stop and pick up poop in a little bag. Here are a couple of  photo collages from yesterday morning’s dog walk.

It was a beautiful, crisp fall day, and I wanted to record the feeling of awareness and really looking at my surroundings–my everyday surroundings on my street, and around my block.

Too bad for little Pupper though, since he didn’t get to decide when to walk and when to stop, which he likes.  He thinks he’s in charge.  But really, he’s not in charge; I’m not in charge.  We just are there together, walking.  Me looking, and him sniffing.

Crisp fall air. Breathe.  See. Smell.  This is home.  This is my street, my block, my neighborhood.


Give ‘Em What They Want

Hey there Savvy Readers,

Happy Day of the Dead!


Our Halloween costumes get another spin today for Day of the Dead after Friday night’s party.

In honor of Day of the Dead which this year is the Day of Daylight-Losing-Time, I’m going to ask you to help me out with some measurements.  I hit 100 followers, 200 likes, 60 posts, and almost 150 comments.  Not big time, but a little bit bigger-time.


One of my last assignments in my blogging class over at WordPress.com (which I highly recommend by the way! Here’s the link.) is to poll your readers about what they like/want to read more of.

If you would be so kind as to give me some feedback, that would be awesome!  I so appreciate your visiting, reading, liking, commenting on, and following my blog.  You mean a lot to me!
