I've been out on the internet looking for inspirational and educational blogs about photography. This week I'm being inspired by Kristi at Life Through the Lens. She gives weekly photo prompts, and this week is "create".
Right now I'm thinking about creating supportive relationships and circles of friends, like this group in my photo. I am realizing how important it is to work at building healthy friendships, and to be selective in doing so. It can be very surprising, when there is an upset in your life, to see who steps forward and who runs the other way. The folks who step forward are the ones to keep in the circle. It's also important to be a forward stepper when the folks in your circle need you. That can take work, but our communities are what support us, each one with an arm around the other; when someone drops an arm it leaves a gap in the support system.
Oh wow, I'm really waxing philosophical today. Anyway, I just want to say that I am thankful for this lovely blog community. There are so many sweet, kind, and very supportive people out there, and - in Utah speak - I preciate cha!
Wishing you a Happy Autumnal Equinox and a Blessed Mabon:)
Ahhhh! As the thunder cracks and the skies let loose with rain drops.....
