Focus on Life - Week 12 {Observe the Curve}

First, I would like to apologize for not
making it to everyone's blogs last week.  
Things were crazy, my daughter is home for 
spring break and we were away last weekend.

Week 12 - Observe the Curve
We move, live and love in curves. Arms, legs and
bodies curve to propel us into the life around us.  Branches of 
trees curve to embrace the breeze.  Letters curve and form words.
Curves can keep things apart, hold things together to create a path.
We were to take this week and focus on all the different kinds of 
curves that surround us everyday.

This one was tough for me. But I
did take a few moments to observe what
was around me.

The curve of the tree in bloom.

The curves of my dashboard.

The curves of the hats blowing in the breeze.

The curves on this amazingly sparkly scrapbook paper.
Seriously, I want Dansko clogs made from this.
This picture does not do it justice!

But these curves (no pun intended)
are what are spring is all about!
The boy is playing JV!

Please hop on over to see Sally's blog
and what curves everyone is sharing!

Thank you, Sally, for encouraging us 
to take a moment!

Fun and summery curves. Great boost in this extra long winter!

Islandgirl said...

Love the picture of the hats... but I'm looking longingly at the flowers in your previous post! We should have flowers by now but instead we have banks of snow from the driveway sitting on top of my flower bed!

While I was amazed how many curves are around us this week, I was equally surprised the the number of straight lines and angles. We should all be a bit more observant every day. We are missing so much if we go about our business and not taking time to appreciate our surroundings. Good reminder to us all. Thanks for sharing the great photos.

Oh those would be awesome shoes!!!! Great curve collection. Enjoy your boy's games this season-and good luck to the team:)

Woohoo! I love that last curve the best! Baseball is my favorite season and I, too, have a h.s. JV ball player. I can't wait until the games start, but since we still have a lot of snow I might be wearing boots, hats and mittens for some time. There is a scrimmage scheduled for April 1st...but you can't even see grass for the two feet of snow on top! Hurry up spring! Enjoy the day. Erin
