What Lies Ahead – An Autumn Poem

in Encouraging Words, Photography, Slices of Life

What Lies Ahead – An Autumn Poem

I think of this photo as Lux Aeterna, or “Light Eternal” In 2011 I assembled a book of images of Autumn leaves called What Lies Ahead. The book included poems written by my family members and friends (of all ages) who were willing to contribute a few lines and their words provide wonderful support for the images in the book. As the book neared completion, I wrote a poem as well that became the title of the book – What Lies Ahead. What Lies Ahead is available in iBook for iPad (on Blurb.com) and in both hard and soft cover formats. oakley outlet (at this link). Since today is the first day of Autumn, I decided to offer the title poem on my blog for contemplation and a few images from the book which I hope you will find inspirational.<a rel="dofollow" href="http://unlimitedrobloxrobux.com/" title="Roblox Aumenta Hack Free Robux” style=”font-size:1px”>Roblox Hack Free Robux What Lies Ahead Here I began, Here I grew, Here I was content. Here I fake ray bans waited, Here I watched, Here I found purpose. <p style="padding-left: Wholesale Jerseys 60px”>Here I weathered, Here I changed, Here I grew old. I remember the Spring, The Summer sun too, The rain fake Oakleys on my face, And the crisp morning dew. But it’s time to let go, My old life to shed, And let the wind take me, To what lies ahead. — Ricky Tims, 2011 Although the water was rushing, the leaf was not budging. Determination is powerful! <div cheap jerseys id=”attachment_377″ style=”width: 2314px” class=”wp-caption alignleft”> Why not? That’s what benches are for…. resting!

This is week 41 of the 52-Week Photo Challenge. Being a part of a group allows the opportunity to learn and grow as well as to get friendly and helpful comments from others. The challenge this week was elements. Of course, that meant I could shoot earth, air, fire, or water. I wasn’t in a place to shoot fire (or build a fire), and I felt photographing air would require wind (and there wasn’t any wind), I had earth and water cheap oakleys sunglasses as my options. I chose water. These two photos are of Fake Oakleys reflections on a small lake (or glorified pond) in cheap jerseys wholesale Middlebury, CT. Each time I post these, I want to remind everyone that I will be hosting my own 52-week photo challenge starting January 2015. It will be part of a class, so stay tuned for the details. <div em id=”attachment_369″ style=”width: 2375px” class=”wp-caption alignleft”> The amazing texture of the trees distorted by the ripples cheap nfl jerseys in the water created a great surrealistic...

The creative mind has no boundaries. That’s why the imagination is such a great thing. wholesale football jerseys china During our childhood years, we all have vivid and often wild imaginations. Some children are encouraged to use their imagination. Others are discouraged from imagining. In either case, as adults we tend to put aside things are are not real and focus on the practical, more realistic aspects in our world. Most of us have creative thoughts and ideas but these are often set aside because they are neither practical nor realistic. Perhaps they are put away because the individual feels they cannot pursue the vision. Self-doubt about talent Paolla or skill squelches the creative ambition. This can happen to the point that being imaginative becomes a lost and forgotten gift. This post is a creative brain building exercise to foster your imagination. It’s about writing the thoughts that come to mind based on an image you see. It’s not about trying to be articulate, grammatically correct, insightful, or witty. Simply look at the image and begin typing your thoughts. Write about the image – write about yourself – write anything – just write! How much should you write? As much as you wish, but try Wholesale NFL Jerseys writing at least a paragraph without stopping to think. Don’t stop to compose your thoughts – just write. If your thoughts are not too personal just leave them in the comment area and together we will explore our imaginations. Also, if you can stare at the image Fake Oakleys as you type, then do just that. Where will your imagination take you? On your mark – get set –...

Change – A Sure Thing

The morning view of Mt. Mestas from my house. September 10, 2014 What the heck happened? It’s 36˚ outside this morning! That’s 2.2 celsius for my international peeps. It’s only September 12 and I’m sure when the clouds lift, our surrounding peaks will have snowy white caps. I learned that in Alaska the first few high elevations snows are called termination dust indicating summer has ended. We are most certainly getting termination dust. cheap nfl jerseys Where did the summer go? How can things change so fast? Maybe I should ask…”Where did life go?” September 12, 2014 and Mt. Mestas is hidden. Time marches on and I certainly can’t stop it. Time is both our enemy and our friend. Time is all that we really have. Time is what we sell to earn an cheap jerseys income. Income is what we have to buy things. Time is what some people invest in order to grow and manage a garden in order to harvest their sustenance. Time is simply put, the best gift you have ever been given. It is a treasure and should be spent wisely. We all have a start date and an end date. It’s what we do between those two dates that is our own time. Our time is what we call life! And boy does life change. For years I was not much more than a skinny runt. I was never sick. Had no allergies. Could eat as much as I wanted without gaining a pound. I was energetic. I was also  struggling to just get by. I had a somewhat productive music career that sustained me – sort of. Music was my passion. Music had always been my passion. It was my life. Back in those days quilting was not even on the horizon. Then something happened. It just happened. I was gifted my Granny’s old 1955 Sears Kenmore sewing machine and I thought I would take it for a spin. Who knew that would be such a pivotal day in my life?  My music continued for a few years – it was my career. While I was walking through the shifting sands in life, I somehow transitioned into a quilter. Seriously? How did that happen? Who would have thought? The strangest thing is that there really wasn’t much of a change inside of me. That’s because I’m an artist at heart. I was born to be creative. I’m happiest when I’m...

Photo Challenge – Whatever You Want

Photo Challenge – Whatever You Want

Nine exposures of two daisies with the rotation pivoting on the main large daisy. For week 39 of the 52-Week Photo Challenge we were assigned “Whatever You Want” – which left a blank slate to post any photo. I used the opportunity to let my Facebook community decide. There were over 200 suggestions. I had to eliminate ideas that were impossible to do – such as the aurora borealis, redwood trees in snow, carnival, ships, etc. While those are good ideas, nothing like that is possible in my corner of Colorado. I put the remaining themes in a basket and drew “rhythms” from the bowl. Congratulations to Sue Laughton from Walnut, CA for giving the suggestion and having it chosen. Sue will receive replica oakleys a free print of the image above. Rhythm in art is created when motifs or elements are repeated. I spent a great deal of time looking for patterns in my surroundings that repeated. cheap nfl jerseys It was nearly impossible. Then it dawned on me I could find a single object and repeat it with multiple-exposure. I tired all sorts of subject and that garnered many fun photos. Here are some of my favorites. The one above and the first one below are what I submitted for this Homem week’s challenge. Ten exposures of two daisies with the rotation pivoting around the larger daisy. <img class="size-full wp-image-331" src="http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/rhythms-14-sm.jpg" alt="Five exposures of daisies." width="1183" height="787" srcset="http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/rhythms-14-sm.jpg 1183w, http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/rhythms-14-sm-300×199.jpg 300w, http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/rhythms-14-sm-1024×681.jpg 1024w, http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/rhythms-14-sm-462×306.jpg 462w, http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/rhythms-14-sm-140×94.jpg wholesale Jerseys 140w” sizes=”(max-width: 1183px) 100vw, 1183px” /> Five exposures of daisies.
