Bloggers Community Photo Challenge
Changes - brought to you by the 1st Community Photo Challenge
I am surprised at how invigorated the AOL-Community has become since tearing up roots and relocating. Maybe its just me making the reconnection with this vibrant and diversified group. Over the years I have half heatedly tried to keep in touch, like changing jobs or cities. It's hard. I have said it so many times that it tastes like ashes in my mouth and my fingers feel heavy typing the words, but I dearly miss the AOL-J-Land of pre-advertising days. Before the 2005 mass Exodus. So many wonderful writers and personalities left never to be heard from again.
But this is a new dawn and new era. All of us have been banished from AOL-J-Land, all given the proverbial boot.
And so, I embrace the new Community by actively participating in the many activities that I have over looked or was unaware of. The first being this photo challenge!
This week's challenge.....CHANGE!
Last night I was talking on the phone to my husband and glance at the front door, which was bathed in the diminishing golden light of October and saw the tiny hand print of.... my grand daughter. She had left this mark behind to remind me that she had been there.
Actually she has followed Bridget and myself outside as we were about to leave on a trip to the store and she was to stay at home. Once she understood we were returning (she is two, almost three)she turned to go back into the house, but could not reach the door knob!
"Jo-Jo! Jo-Jo!" She hollered, "Let me in!!" and Bridget ran to open the door for her.
This little imprint reminds me that as things change and evolve an impression is always left behind.
As my little sweeties hand print.
