I was asked to join a new blog circle a few weeks ago. It’s called “The Serenity Project” and it’s goal is to post images that convey serenity. Well… first of all, I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough and second of all I knew exactly what image I’d be selecting for my first post.
If there’s one thing I need at least once a month, it’s a reminder to find some peacefulness and calmness in this hectic thing we call life. I don’t know about you, but my life just seems crazy all the time. How can every minute of the day still seem to be occupied with something to work on, something to cook, something to clean, something to fold and put away … and I don’t even have little ones to take care of anymore! That doesn’t even count dusting because I gave that up a long time ago. Really, I did. Ask my husband. Although he couldn’t tell you because he doesn’t see the dirt on the kitchen floor either. Not even when he’s barefoot.
See what I mean? I’m getting all NOT serenitized just thinking about it! (Yes, I know serenitized is not a word)
So there you have the reason I joined this blog circle. At least one day a month, I’m going to find serenity in creating a blog post that will convey the peace and calm I crave and most definitely require to preserve my sanity.
This first month’s image is from my archives. I was at a nearby lake trying to take pictures of the sunset. The sunset wasn’t going to cooperate that night so as I was walking along the path back to my car I spotted this gentleman rowing across the lake. You could tell he was in his own little world with his head down, shoulders strong and carrying out a synchronized rhythm to keep the boat gliding effortlessly in the water. I watched him for a little bit before continuing to my car. I think I was supposed to miss the sunset that night.
Serenity, yes? Serenity now.
You’ll want to find some more serenity by following the circle to my talented friend Nadeen Flynn’s post.
