DPP 2012 Day 8

December 8, 2012 § Leave a comment

No, I didn’t forget yesterday, just couldn’t really come up with any thing that brought me joy. Some music did, and some thoughts of wee loved ones, but nothing to photograph. So I didn’t. I allowed myself the freedom to not feel joy that day.

Today, however, I woke to gigantic fluffy snow falling outside my window and rushed out to see if I could save those beautiful lanterns. Is it really only two days since I was capturing them being radiant in the afternoon sun? I have an idea for them and (if it works) they will constitute another Joy photo this week. For now, here is where they are to dry off:

The choice was a bit harder today, the bright afternoon sun was so beautiful. Although the sun on green grass at this time of year brings me joy (because it is NOT buried under snow as usual) it was the remaining burst of colour in the garden that ultimately made the cut for today’s photo. I hope you enJOY this vision of fire energy in the afternoon sunlight as much as I do.

Joy today was in attending the Ottawa Little Theatre production of Mr. Pim Passes By, written by A.A. Milne. Yes, he of Winnie the Pooh. Great fun!

Somewhere in the ether-world is my photo. When it lands I will post it here.
Until then I shall say that on this Day 5 of DPP 2012, JOY is… my theatre ticket to see A.A. Milne’s Mr. Pim Passes By.

Music brought me Joy today… specifically, Carole King’s Tapestry album. Way Over Yonder put me way over the edge of JOY!

Ok, time to ‘fess up. I did not take this photo.

But it did make me laugh out loud (joy!) at the pun and then I listened to the song in question… more joy!

So Thank You to Mr. Teacup for the joy today!
