As you read and ponder the photos in this week’s post, I invite you to keep “play” in the forefront of your “listening.”

Two years ago, in the first sharing of these photos and experience, I wrote:
“For many, holidays present challenging times, especially when loved ones are absent or gone. From what I’ve experienced myself, and seen in others, we’ll often spend time a good amount of time dwelling on what’s missing and the sadness and loneliness of that.

What I’ve discovered is that ultimately staying in that state certainly does not make me feel any better. To make a conscious shift, I may start listing mentally, or on paper, that for which I am grateful. I will sometimes go further and directly express gratitude to another person if it fits and is feasible.”

I’m somewhat at a loss for words today with the undercurrent of the senseless, awful tragedy in Newton, Connecticut yesterday.

(Should you live in a distant section of the world and not be aware of it – a shooter forced his way into a school, Kindergarten through 4th grade, and murdered 20 children and 6 adults.)

My subconscious thoughts, I suppose, are what has resulted in this strange mixture of photos that requested being shared here today.

If you have been following Photography and Transformation for the past several years, and even less, you are probably aware that I do very little product promotion. As you read the following, I invite you to consider how what I’m experiencing and expressing may fit for you in areas of your own life. [click to continue…]
