Today is week two of Focusing on Life 52 photos challenge created by Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime blog. Each Saturday we will get a prompt, you take a photograph that represents the prompt, then on the following Saturday you write a blog post about the photograph that is your representation of the prompt.
This Saturday's prompt was to take a photograph that represents the word that you chose for yourself this year. My word is...
|Adj.||1.||serene - not agitated; without losing self-possession; "spoke in a calm voice"; "remained calm throughout the uproar"; "he remained serene in the midst of turbulence"; "a serene expression on her face"; "she became more tranquil"; "tranquil life in the country"|
|2.||serene - completely clear and fine; "serene skies and a bright blue sea"|
(The sky here when I took the photograph, 1-11-13, was not quit clear from clouds, but it is still a beautiful blue with a few wispy clouds.)
Last year my word was Awake. I chose awake, because I was going to take each day with my eyes and mind open to my surroundings and my beading. I would remind myself of my word often and it helped me become a more aware person and less self centered. It also allowed me to open myself up to new possibilities in my beading and to realize that seed beading was where my heart belonged. So by being awake in 2012 it brings me into feeling serene in 2013 more self assured, calm, and tranquil. Definition 1 of the word serene applies to my chosen profession of being a Police Communication Officer, it is very important to keep one's head in an emergency and when you are trying to get information out of a person that is freaking out on the other end of the phone line.
Thank you for visiting and please go and visit the others that are taking part in Focusing on Life.
Happy beading Y'all,
