  1. This is wonderful! Love the poem and the pictures you used to go along with it are perfect. I like the way you have hidden your name in the pictures. So many people splash theirs across and you can’t see what the image is. I’m going to have to try that. It’s a great way to protect!

      It’s a fine line, isn’t it? I don’t want to ruin the pictures with a glaring watermark, but I do want people to know their origins, and to respect the copyright on my images.

      Have you thought about joining our Art Challenges? I’d love to see your interpretation(s) of our prompts…

      Thanks for checking into this for me, Nadine. I have NO idea why I had trouble logging onto your page, but I really appreciate that you helped create a workaround. I loved this prompt, and I’m always up for a challenge!

  3. Melodye, these gorgeous images go so well with Mary Oliver’s profound words. She knows the value of the ritual of “instructing myself over and over” in the beauty of the world.

      She really does! It’s not a lesson we can master in a lifetime; we come at it a little differently, every moment of every day.

    wonderful…both the little poem and your wonderful pictures. I love how seamlessly they ‘fit’ within the story the poem is telling.

      Thanks so much, Pamela!! Everyone interprets poetry (art challenges…) a little differently. I’m glad this resonated with you. xo

      Mary Oliver resonates with me, too. Glad you enjoyed the visit–I’m excited to see how you interpreted the theme of the month, Tammie!

      Thanks so much, Carol! I am very fond of Mary Oliver’s poetry. She is plain-spoken, but she encourages us to go deep. (Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of our prompt!)

      I love our art challenges, in part because they encourage us to keep our eyes open. Excited to see how you’ve approached this challenge!
