January 2013

This weekend I went searching through files for an earlier issue of Picture to Ponder/Treasure Your Life Now that featured food photographs. I had an article due for my SEEing Beyond column in my community newsletter.

When queried about a theme they’d like, one of the editors said she always enjoys when the articles evolve from photos of food. I found an issue from July 6, 2011 – Declaration: Celebration, Love and Laughter that featured the photos I’m using today, plus one of a quarter piece of cantaloupe.

Since I shifted the context for this issue, a new version and interpretations, it will be necessary to click on the latter link if you wish to see the cantaloupe and are curious as to what I wrote then.

Please continue reading after the photos, for my sharing on a couple of other important things I am up to.

At random, 2008 jumped out and then the title for Volume 4 – Issue 24 caught my eye – Peacefulness from a Fireflag Flower. Going with the peacefulness/relaxation intention I am therefore republishing the latter issue with some modification.

It is my intention, that you, too, experience peace as you look at and spend time with
