I was inspired

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. 
 -  e.e. cummings, 1955

My uncle sent me a website tonight to look at because he thought I'd like some of the flower images.  And, oh! Yes! I did!

This is one of my favorites (calla lily with watery type reflection). 

Anywhoo - her website encouraged me to try something a little different.  I was playing around the other day with some flowers I received from a friend, macro filters and bright window light infused with shadows from other flowers in the vase.  One petal was accentuated and I loved it.  

Stepping out of my shell + wanting to try something a bit different + being inspired by others = Fun!

Thanks Uncle Jim for thinking of me and sending me Kathleen Clemons website. Hugs to you and my Auntie Kay who inspires me always with her willingness to be open to try new and creative things.  Love.
