We are now at week 12. Festival of Leaves is wrapping up its seasonal challenge. This photo was taken downtown McMinnville, Oregon. McMinnville has a charm to it, that always has fun window displays to view. Thanks to Dawn Miller, who has been hosting for quite a while now. Her photography is beautiful and she’s great to work with. I also want to thank other participants at Festival of Leaves, as well. Even though we are wrapping it up here, many of us will continue sharing our creative endeavors at our blogs. Thank you to the wonderful community of bloggers who take time to visit.
Several days ago, I reflected on certain people that came into my life for a short duration. As I look back they appeared in my eyes to have been mature individuals of good character, integrity and displayed kindness. I see them now as quiet and gentle messengers from God. At the time, I didn’t grasp the understanding of who these people were and why I was meant to meet them in my lifetime. Now, that I am older I have an appreciation for those that I was gifted to have met. As I searched for a quote today, I thought this was fitting for what I had been pondering on lately.
On day two of this three day challenge, I would like to nominate Rachel from rachelmankowitz: the cricket files to share a quote. Rachel has an ability to make me laugh with her wit and sense of humor. She has a love for furry friends and a desire to help humanity, in a field that takes very special people, to work in that capacity. I am extremely sensitive to those that live very busy and full lives. There is absolutely no pressure to do this. Rachel is gifted as a writer, and another writer that I can visualize her work in print. I have modified this challenge, but the following are the real rules for this..
The rules for the 3 Day Quote Challenge are
- To thank the person that nominated you
- Post a quote for three consecutive days. (one quote for each day)
- Nominate 3 bloggers every day
This weeks challenge at the Daily Post is Out of this World. Ben Huberman mentions that we are free to interpret the theme loosely.. So, that is what I have done, with this abstract of a bridge.

Alley the queen bee of our cat family
She is never amused with my photography sessions
I told her that she was a perfect Match for the Daily Post, Weekly Challenge of a Good Match
She didn’t respond
Clouds are graceful as they move across the sky
Water cascades gracefully over the rocks
Some people age gracefully
The Daily Post Weekly Challenge is Graceful
