Sunday Stills: #Stillness of Summer

If you reside in the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice arrived on Friday, marking the longest day of the year. I acknowledge my friends in the southern hemisphere as midwinter has arrived!

Sunday Stills: Seeking #Warmth

The theme “warmth” for this week’s Sunday Stills photo challenge conjures a variety of ideas. For many, it has been a cold, harsh winter. I spent last weekend in South Lake Tahoe for our Ladies Retreat. The Sierra Nevada mountains in May can be warm, cold or both! This time, although the nights and early …

Sunday Stills: Revenge of the #Fifth and More

I have said this before that when I create Sunday Stills photo challenge themes, they are meant to challenge me, too. This is definitely true today, May 5th, as I use “fifth” as this week’s theme. As you read today’s post, I am finishing my weekend in Lake Tahoe with our Women’s Retreat. Our retreats …
