Final Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorite Photos

Good bye WordPress mentors and muses.  Parting will be sorrowful indeed.

A few of my favorite flower photographs.

Daily Prompt: Narcissism

That word gets thrown around a lot lately for good reason.  Many are currently wearing this label and more will in the future if our culture does not turn back to Godly ways instead of the selfish worldly ways that our mainstream has made so popular and attractive.  Speaking of “attractive” it is the very definition of the word itself.  Per Dictionary.com the definition of narcissism is “every beautiful, perfect looking superstar you know!”  That’s not really their definition, it’s mine.  Their definition is “inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity.  Psychoanalysis: erotic gratification derived from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes, being a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development.”  Sound like anyone you know right now or promoted by various media as healthy and normal?  We all can say Donald Trump and he does not even try to hide it.  I don’t say this to put him down, just stating fact and it’s not attractive.

Narcissus flowers, of a similar name, also the name of a character in Greek Mythology where the term narcissism originated.   So beautiful in springtime!

Weekly Photo Challenge: My Favorite Place is Any Garden

There is no other place I would rather be than a garden, no matter what the weather.  Summer is the best of course but a garden is great in any season.

SUDDENLY SPRING!

JUST KIDDING!

Few weeks to go yet.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Elemental Elements of Nature

Elemental Elements of Nature totally fascinate me.  When I was out in it yesterday, I was remembering how I spent most of my childhood outdoors, in my element for sure.  I love nature!  I have always been fascinated with the creations of God.  Flowers, trees & their fruits, birds, insects, frogs & tadpoles, ground rats (chipmunks), any kind of field or garden that I could spend hours in.

I would spend so much time just studying and looking for things.  If you looked close enough and long enough you could always find something awesome.  Can’t tell you what exactly, because it was different each time.  That was the excitement of it.

Super tomboys, my sister and I climbed trees and searched for tadpoles and snakes in the huge field up from Edward Hines Park in Nankin Township.  We found all kinds of things to eat as well.  Tons of hazelnuts grew wild there as well as berries.  We picked them and brought them home for us all to enjoy.  We ate the debatable Hawthorn berries that grew on the many trees in the park near our home.  You have to know how to eat them safely.

I miss those simpler times before media experts all over telling you every move to make and what you should and shouldn’t do.  I don’t even listen to the talking heads anymore.  I’m going back to my “second childhood” now.
