Since my One-Word for 2013 is Open-Hearted, I decided to participate in this monthly challenge from Kat Eye Studio. Among other things, Kat hosts a monthly Photo-Heart Connection Challenge. The rules are simple :
1) Pick 1 photo which which you feel the strongest heart connection to share. Any photo taken or edited in the past month qualifies.
2) Write about your heart connection. Why does that photo speak to you? What do you feel?
I guess I've had a theme of wishing stars going on in January. Nah--It's more like a lifetime theme!
There are not many days in Winter that I'm home in daylight hours and able to snap such a pic in my kitchen window. I couldn't resist! I loved how the sunlight lit up the flecks in this Amethyst Point. It's a crystal--seemingly inanimate. But in this moment, it was alive and communicating with the Winter sun. I felt honored to be a witness to this everyday magic.
See what other people have posted for January here.
2013 is also The Year of Ordinary Magic as decreed by Kelly Letky and Graciel Evenstar.
I think this qualifies. No promises on the Ordinary Magic front, but I'm open to see what happens this year ...
