Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: This Land Is My Land, 2 verses

As I was walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley:
This land was made for you and me.
 I’ve roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps

To the spakling sands of her diamond deserts;
And all around me a voice was sounding: 
This land was made for you and me.

Photo Challenge: New

It’s the first photo challenge of 2015, and the theme is “new.” Cliché? Perhaps, but clichés develop for a reason. For many of us, the year’s beginning is time to take stock of the past and plan for the future; this week, let’s get excited about those plans by celebrating what’s new.


New sunny day
Amidst the snow
Makes everything bright
Gives us hope for the new year
New plans, new lists, new trips
New perspective, new surprises




Photo Blogging Challenge: ‘Tis the Season


Tis the season to be fun and jolly
Christmas market with malt wine
Christmas tree all decorated & lit
Mistletoe hanging, candles burning
Beautifully wrapped presents waiting
Mince and lemon pies, nuts and dates
Everyone tries to get along
No bickering, no quarreling
Just spreading love and peace
Thinking about the past year
Looking forward to the new year


Photo Challenge: Warmth

If you’re like me, living in the upper reaches of the Northern Hemisphere, this is the season where we seek out small pleasures to compensate for the short days and chilly weather: fireplaces, down comforters, hot chocolate (or glühwein, if we must…).

Photo Challenge: Gone, But Not Forgotten

Gone, But Not Forgotten

In today’s challenge, show us what “gone, but not forgotten” means to you. It could be a photo of a faithful canine friend who’s chasing squirrels in a better place, a spot in your city, town, or village that reminds you of a relationship now over, a talisman that reminds you of something that you can never get back, a photo of you in your smashing 70s silver lamé jumpsuit, or the crumbs that remain from the delicious cheesecake you baked.
