Greetings and Salutations from Illinois!   I took some photographs of these flowers that are blooming in our backyard.  Spring has finally come to our area.   The weather is cool but starting to warm up into the 60s.  Life is grand!

This is what Lake Michigan looked like yesterday afternoon after 4:00 P.M.

"My friends and family are my support system.  They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear, and they are there for me in the good and bad times.  Without them I have no idea where I would be and I know that their love for me is what's keeping my head above water."
~ Kelly Clarkson

4/14/2015 - Thinking Outside the Box - Dirty Windows - Quote - Alsha Mirza - Journeys





"Sometimes the best journeys are those that start when we do not plan, continue how we do not expect and are taking us places we do not know."
~ Alsha Mirza

Have you ever seen sheets of rain and yet you are standing where it isn't raining?    This is how I felt when I saw this lighting on a dirty window.   Notice the top half of the image  is dark and the bottom half of the photograph  is lighter.   How strange?   Lines wiggle like our paths on earth.   Circles showing there is no beginning or ending.  If you squint both eyes all I see are the two white lines on the left hand side all the other images in the photo disappear.   To me those white lines could be joy or sadness, however, a person feels that day.    And so it is.
