Wild blue yonder


Today’s Blue Light Special is free time.

Time to walk around an empty house without stepping on errant Lego bricks. Time to eat lunch while it’s still warm without tiny fingers snatching bits from your plate.

Time to savor the smoky aroma of fresh brewed coffee, when you long for the greasy, sweet scent of crayons and finger paints.

Free time to do everything left unresolved over the past 18 years, only to find you no longer have the energy or enthusiasm to do anything.

An identity crisis – time to finally figure out what to be when you grow up.

This week’s Studio30 Plus theme is “foam,” and/or “blue light special
The 100 Word Challenge, to tell a story in only 100 words. This week’s theme is “Crisis”

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. Too much time – to do too much thinking – and reminiscing. You feel like a disused pool toy, floating in the water, bouncing off the sides of the pool as the breeze takes you this way and that – but you don’t really get anywhere.

    Love your piece. xoxoxox


  2. It’s such a fine line between wanting for yourself and not wanting them to grow up. I think many people struggle with the “who am I” when those legos and crayons are gone.
