Lean Back And Enjoy

LR edited (1 of 1)-4
Well …
Seems as if Life Itself
has brought me here
to this place I’m in.
I may as well
lean back and enjoy
and learn what I came
here to learn,
so when Life nudges
me once again
I’ll be free to move as ONE
with Life Itself.

    1. I am still so determined to show the magic I shot this past weekend, Amanda. I don’t know if I can keep this pace up, honestly. But I am trying. This is the most posting I have done in a very long time. It really makes it challenging to blog when I do this.
      Thank YOU for the compliments. My mind was blown what I both saw and photographed that very special evening. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

  1. Wow, you are just literally blowing me out of the water every day! Pun intended. I love how you added the painted effect here…makes it look even more surreal. Also, the personification of the tree/branch was awesome. Yes, not much to do until the water unfreezes this one!

    1. I LOVE your enthusiasm, Marissa, which only makes me more excited to bring to you and all who come here, Beauty in the form of Different. (smile) I honestly did not do a painting effect with this image. This is what happens when a photographer uses long exposure, which I did with this one, creating creamy effects and a softness. SO glad you enjoyed!!! ❤

      1. I don’t expect you to understand, Marissa, because you don’t understand photography. I really do get a big kick out of your questions, and I really LOVE answering them. There is SO much to know in digital photography that even I do get overwhelmed. For real. 🙂

      2. Gee, we must be standing in the same line. TIME is my biggest problem. I don’t know how I do what all I do as it is. Right now I am shampooing my rugs, with both feet cramping, this on THE day of going to my Chiropractor. How I would have LOVED to just RELAX today. But no. I must go like a madwoman getting this house clean so I can turn around and start getting my gardens open. *sigh* OH, do I ever want to DO so much more with my life! Right now my hands are really and truly tied. *sigh again* Thanks for listening. I’m having a pity party! *toots horn* 😉

  2. What a beautiful place Amy. I think I could live there. The blue is so vibrant it just sucks me in and makes me feel as if I’m part of the photo, leaning against the fallen tree, just dreaming about what could be, could have been, could still happen. Oh, Amy, I love it all. I’m going to print this one out full page and hang it on my wall so I can find the PEACE that I see there tonight. Be at peace in your heart and soul sweet Amy, this Life is filled with lovely things waiting for you to photograph for the rest of us to enjoy. Thank you for sharing this with us/with me.
    Love, Angie

    1. Angie, I am so touched that you love my work so much that you have it around you. May the PEACE in this image find a Home in your Heart always. I am at Peace, dear dear friend. I just went through a huge Healing Journey, one that I will be posting about. I am breaking the silence regarding I was very abused as a child. I’m even calling my mother to warn her she may not want to read this post, for she is one of my followers. This is my blog, and I have been guided to share what happened, knowing that my experience will touch many Hearts. Love you, Angie!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. I’ll pray for you all the way Sweet Amy.I finally told my mom what happened to all her daughters on a day we were angry with each other, not a good day to reveal that type of news. As usual, she didn’t believe me, so I suggested she call my sisters, just to see what they would tell her. It was strange that she believed them, apologized to them, but never spoke to me about it again. No apologies came my way, no hugs that would have meant so much at that time, just a cold look of anger. But they always shoot the messenger, don’t they? My sisters thanked me for getting it out in the light of day, but all in all, it’s not something I’ll ever blog about. I’ve had to take too much from them all to give them more ammunition to use in trying to talk me into shutting my blog down. I came close, too, too close during the past year, but in the end I came out stronger than they are on this one thing. The strange part is that none of them admit to ever reading my blog, yet they all seem to know what I write. Someone in my family seems to be reading it under the bed or in a closet to know so much about something they never read, a very childish act in my book. One more thing I dislike MS. So hard to diagnose, so many labels over too many years, and now complete lack of family support.
        I think I’m telling you all of this to prepare you for what could lie ahead if you have siblings. My mom did read my posts at times, because she would call and correct some statements I made at times, always only small stuff, but she was such a stickler for exact words and dates, as well as pinning the crime on the right person, lol.
        My personal space now is filled with only the things I love Amy, color, pictures of lovely places posted by friends and privately enjoyed my only me, with some visitors asking about the photographer. I so enjoy telling them about the photographer, at least as much as I feel free to share about the photographer, cat loving, animal loving lady that she is, and all of her wonderful photos of her family of kitties and roses. And Niagara Falls. And all of the lovely places you have taken me with your magic lens and photo lab experience.
        Your experiences always touch so many hearts sweet Amy, and your story will also lead others who have suffered so long in silence to realize they are not to blame for whatever happened. We all have suffered in silence way too long, and now you are the one chosen to share your story, and help us all find our way out. Love you also Sweet Amy.

      2. I’m in tears, Angie. Yes I have broken the silence today. And I am stronger for it. I did not go into detail but I said enough for all who do read my post that my childhood was a nightmare. I am setting myself free in this process. I did call my Mom today and warned her about this post. Yes I have forgiven her and no I do not wish her to be upset. She still has yet been able to bring accountability to what she did to us as kids. That is her journey, not mine and it is not for me to judge either.
        I Love you, Angie. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. I don’t like to see every day as a battle, Monica. When I look at life through the lens of calmness, of Peace, and an attitude of “God help me with all that comes my way this day.” no matter what happens, (usually NOT always) I see this day as a New Day to again attempt to adjust my actions and thoughts where need be to that of Love. (smile) That was a LONG sentence!!! LOL ❤

    1. LOL I am the waterfall Queen. I LOVE that phrase. Water just draws me, Julie. Not real big bodies of water but I am finding such fascination in these small creeks that are so in abundance where we live. I really am fortunate to be living where I am. I’m having so much fun, but, yes there is a but. The images I took of Blossom Falls have ice in them and right now the weather has turned so warm which is making the flowers pop up. I’m in a dilemma. Do I keep posting my waterfall pictures even if they have ice in them or what? We’ll see. It’s still early so we may end up with frost or even snow again. T’is makes for an interesting life. (smile) ❤
