Week 13, The 52 Project

20140330-104332.jpg

I apologize that I have to edit this post. I just realized that I am labeling the posts as though the week begins on Sunday instead of Monday. As a result, I am one week ahead. Thus, the correction. Thanks for understanding. xo

This is Week 13 of The 52 Project. This week, I post a photo of my 7-year-old granddaughter, D. She is very creative and, among other things, is always creating movies, most in which she acts. This shot was taken while she took a short break from her filming. The pink flower is a prop for the movie but I think that it draws the eye to her beautiful, pensive face. I love her natural creativity and the joy that she approaches everything she does. She has a bright, joyful light and spirit that touches everyone and  everything around her. She is a shining jewel in this world. I love this little girl and I love this photograph.

Week 7/52

Seriously.jpg

Well, it is week 7 of The 52 Project 2014 and today I have a photograph of my youngest grandson, A. He was born about ten months ago and he has 2 year old twins sisters. In this photo, he looks oh so serious, and I can’t help wondering what he is thinking. He is an easy going and happy boy and generally, he is laughing and smiling about nothing in particular. This photograph, which captures his serious side, is all the more precious.

Blessings, Lydia

This is my photo submission for week 6 of The 52 project. I apologize in advance because I have no g’children photos this week. Given that I’ve taken no photos of myself for weeks, I’ve chosen a photo that doesn’t warm my heart like my kids or g’children, but is still near and dear to my heart. For reasons that you will understand in moments, she is like another of my children. If you read my blog, you’ve probably read the story behind this piece, so by all means, feel free to enjoy one of my other posts.

In the interest of brevity, I’ve always yearned to paint and draw but was convinced that I couldn’t do either. In 2013, in spite of my fears, I took my first painting and drawing e-courses. I was seriously hooked! After less than a month of beginning my first drawing class, I drew, collaged and painted the above piece. I look at her whenever I doubt myself and feel that I can’t do something. She reminds me that I must banish the words “I can’t” from my vocabulary, because they only serve to limit the amazing things that I can do.

Blessings, Lydia

5/52: The 52 Project

20140202-101114.jpg

I haven’t seen my g’children yet this week, so I am using a slightly older photo. This week, I have a photo of my 2 year old twin g’daughters, L.R. And L.I., and my 7 year old g’daughter, D. The twins love to play with their older cousin, and usually there is non-stop chaos. After much cajoling, I am able to still them for a moment for the photo. There is no time to set up the photo. This is the result. It is clear from the photo that D. is doing her best to hold on to the twins in order to keep them from bolting.

Blessings, Lydia
