The pages of the calendar turns swiftly. The year draws to an end and it’s time to get a new one. It is the time of the year when the mind rummages through the moments that became memories, some treasured while others best forgotten. It muses over the accomplishments and debacles, sets new resolutions and targets, assures itself of an improved and better version of itself in the coming year by gifting itself an optimistic outlook, burying all bitter moments. It wants to start on a clean slate and script a life full of colorful hues with bold strokes of positivity infused with a perfect blend of zeal, learning and enlightenment.
May the coming year, unravel treasured moments,
May life surprise us in beautiful ways,
May we gift ourselves the gift of living in the “Present”,
May we all discover a new facet of our personality,
May the New Year usher in brotherhood, love and peace in the world.
“This week, we’re proposing something a little different to celebrate the end of the year. Instead of a specific theme or topic, we invite you to share your most meaningful photo from 2017. This isn’t necessarily the “best” photo you’ve taken this year — feel free to post your most technically accomplished photo of the year if you’d like, but we equally encourage you to think about other parameters.”
A kaleidoscope of images captured through the year with my lens . A mixed bag of my favorites with mesmerizing nature, architectural marvels, adorable animals and happy emotions. Take your pick!
This week…a twist. The photo below by MorningbirdPhoto at Pixabay.com features someone holding a stack of books. Now, you can write a tale about this book lover…or if you’re up for a challenge, pick one of the books and write your tale based on the title. And let’s take it up a notch if you’re really up for a challenge…choose several titles and incorporate them into your story! The possibilities are endless! I’ll see you at the roundup next week! 😊
My tale for the prompt is:
TheSwiss family Robinson traveled Far North on vacation. Visiting the “Maze” at TheMonster of Hollowsdeclared the eeriest place , was on their list. Braving their fears, they went on. “Called to Die” read the spooky signage. Clutching the Holy Bible in his pocket, he prayed!
