This is an eroded patch of asphalt on the sidewalk where I often walk. Each time I pass it, the shape reminds me of the continent of Africa. The other day I snapped a picture so I could compare it to a map. There is a remarkable resemblance, so now when I go for a walk – I just tell my husband I’m going to Africa and back!

There is a park just blocks from where I live that always does an amazing job of decorating for Christmas. The festive glow of the lights provides an air of wonder and magic – and never fails to make me feel like a kid again!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

My place in this world has changed many times over the years. Growing up, my place was in my room. It’s where I’d go when I wanted to be alone or to do my homework or where I was sent when I was in trouble! After the birth of my daughter, my place was by her side providing constant care and an abundance of love until I realized she needed her own place too, which was – at times –  without me. These days, my place in this world seems to be outdoors! I especially enjoy time by the creek on a sunny day when I can see the reflection of sky on water. Right now, my place is appropriately here–somewhere between heaven and earth!
