Well, I've just gotten a new and improved camera in anticipation of taking some wonderful travel photos on a trip to Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Denmark) in August. Only trouble is, my digital snapping skills are inadequate, to put it kindly. Trolling through some of my favorite blogs, I ran across this Good Photos in 30 Days meme at In Good Company with the Georgia Girls . The idea is to take a photo a day for 30 days--subject determined by the meme maestro.
Day 1 is "self-portrait". There's a saying that the eyes are the windows of the soul. I agree. When I look closely at these eyes, wish they had more of their old sparkle and fun, but that's the state of things this day. On a strictly ornamental note--I quite like these new retro frames (very Annette Benning in The Kids are Alright). Cool frames and high functioning lens are very important to me since I wear glasses all the time. Must give the "windows to this soul" a good frame!
- Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.
