Please forgive me. Holiday weekends
mess with my mind
and I'm convinced it's still Wednesday
so I'm late posting.
I have to admit that lately,
with all the getting-the-house-ready-to-sell
I've lost touch with some of the things I love most.
I'm not writing.
I don't keep a camera close by.
So the road trip I mentioned last week was a joyous blessing.
I drove to the eastern part of the state --
Pullman specifically --
home of Washington State University,
where I started my higher education.
There was some material in the university's manuscript collection
that pertained to my mother's family's trip by wagon train
to Washington Territory in 1862 that I wanted to peruse.
Once that was done, I meandered about the two-lane highways
and dusty lanes with a map of photo ops.
It's farming country, as you can see.
Some farms -- wheat ranches, often --
but other farms and homesteads are abandoned.
It was magical to come around a corner and see something
I wanted to capture through the lens.
It reminded me that my abundance lies in my joy
and I do myself a disservice
if I don't do what I love every day.
What's on your mind this week?
How are you cultivating joy?
1. do a post that tells and shows what gives you joy.
2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into
the Mr. Linky box along with your info.
3. Visit other players and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment because everyone
enJOYS getting positive feedback.
Let's keep the epidemic of JOY going!
