My view of the earth while on a train. I enjoyed seeing the wide open fields of green.
The Daily Post, Weekly Photo Challenge is Earth
Through the eyes of a child
Meeting this little boy, was my most recent magical moment. I did not wave a wand and was not magically whisked away. It took planning and preparation,but my heart got filled up and it will carry me, for awhile.
I am linking to the challenge of Magic at the Daily Post..

The mother hen in me is usually paying attention to the younger generation. Sometimes my feathers get ruffled by what I see and hear. But, I am often inspired by them as well. I was a timid individual for many years, so when I talk to and hear about their plans to take on a challenge of going across country or hiking, or tackling college for many years, I am impressed by their determination. Here is my take on cover art for a book or album. The song that came to mind for this challenge was Footloose by Kenny Loggins. I will add my own two cents and call it Footloose and Fancy Free. I pulled it out of my archives from a time we were on our way to Washington. I can see this young couple driving across the US looking for the next big wave, Footloose and Fancy Free.
We had an opportunity recently to stop and take a look at Monarch Butterflies that cluster yearly at a few different locations in California. There were plenty of photographers taking pictures and several docents offered their knowledge to visitors that had questions.
Looking up as I did, they appeared to be camouflaged as they clustered among the leaves and branches of the Eucalyptus trees
Even though it appears to be sunny, it was later in the afternoon and shadows were setting in
It was fascinating to observe. Butterflies are beautiful and delicate. To learn of how far they travel is amazing.
The term roots for wings is not something I came up with but got from a blog I discovered yesterday. It just so happens to fit the events that are occurring in our lives.
to find out more on this check out Ramble Ann’s World
To read up on a delightful woman I have come to know, who is rooted beautifully in her home but also has wings that carry her from one inspired creation to another. Visit Margaret here.
I don’t know if it’s ants in my pants or what..but ever since I have been bitten by the world of blogging I have had a penchant to explore and set up a blog or two, only to find that it wasn’t quite what I was looking for. Much of the adventure, for me is in the design aspect and how I want it to appear to readers. So, once again I set out on a quest and now I invite you dear friends to visit me, where I thought perhaps the grass is greener. Of course I jest with you as WordPress has been a great experience and has opened the door for me to meet wonderful, inspirational and creative individuals..Yes, I mean you! I may have to make a decision on down the road..You will find me, Ramble Ann here. Eventually this will coincide with our plans for the days ahead.

I really miss riding my bike. We are in a mountainous area and I would have to be what I am not to be able to ride up hill. When I was out today running errands, yes, I can be a runner of errands at times… I came across this little blue cutie.
I was so happy that I had my camera with me. I appreciate bicycle photo opportunities and I have so much fun with photo manipulation.
I decided to drag my bike out of the shed. We are working on some changes once again and it is our desire to one day have my bike tied up to an RV and head north. I can visualize myself riding on a scenic bicycle path…
