wow. yesterday was rough.
Tension, stress, short tempers... most everyone I know was having a difficult day... and so was I.
I am more hopeful for today.

I know that when I am upset, I turn to making things (or cleaning) to calm down.
My daughter writes and paints. I think most of us have something we do to let out our frustrations and hurts, joys and excitement. I was thinking about this very thing last week, and was wondering how I could give a "prompt" or a snippet of something to those of  you who read my blog... in the hopes of providing an idea to spark some creativity.
Coincidentally, I had found some great old photos at a local antique shop (also last week), and as I was putting them away... discovered I had a nice little collection of old photos. I figured this was the universe sending me a "high sign"... and so on Wednesdays... I intend to post an old photograph. Write a poem! Plot out a short story! Have inspiration for a piece of art or composition.... let your creativity shine. (you can click on the photo in this post to make it larger to see).

This photo: Doesn't look like any of these children were quite ready for the photograph to be taken... and I love how it has become discolored with age. What's their story? If you are a "friend" of mine on Facebook... feel free to comment a snippet.. or share what you've done. See you all tomorrow.
