Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

front hall
Here is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning. Considering the theme, I think it’s appropriate that this is my first time ever to join in on the photo challenge.

I snapped this picture on the morning of January 2, the start of another new year, at one of my favourite times of day. The sun had not been up for long, the rest of the family was still sleeping, and the best part: I didn’t have to go to work! I love it when the light is like this, soft and quiet, yet throwing bright squares against the wall, making the coming day seem full of possibilities. Creative whispers stir in my mind, and my thoughts turn to things I want to do, rather than what I have to get done. This early-morning light has inspired at least a couple of songs, jotted scraps of poetry, and plenty of improvising on the piano. On days when I need to get out the door to go to work, this morning sunlight inspires a twinge of regret for what might have been, if only I had some time to explore what the light suggests.

  1. Dear Tina,

    Welcome to the Weekly Photo Challenge! I have found the challenges to be a fun and interesting way of generating a new post. Some of the themes will have you scratching your head for images; and looking through the other submissions is a great introduction to a wide variety of blogs to interest and inspire both you and your blog content. You’re in for a treat. πŸ™‚

    Wishing you a wonder-filled 2014 and the very best of yourself in your endeavours for the coming year.

    Yours sincerely,

    might war

    • Thanks for the encouragement! I’m really enjoying looking at other people’s posts, and now that I’ve made the first step, I’m looking forward to participating again!
