moving forward / waxing moon
L - iphone / T - phone (collaborative)
Today we post our 300th post. It has changed since that first naive post we made back on August 18th 2008. But in some ways I like the simpleness those first entries had - in a way they seem stronger in their simplicity. They represented more of what my original intentions were here - for each of us to share just a tiny bit of our day with each other. Things changed and that's all fine as long as it's for the best. It's changed but has it moved forward? (or should we go back to a photo and one sentence structure). I sometimes feel we struggle with it - she's not always able (or honestly "wants") to send her part and I don't always have words or photos to share either, but we have carried on and have hit almost every day since we started and that feels pretty good. We've definitely gone through ups and downs here on our blog – I'll just consider it an ebb and flow just as the moon wanes and waxes. But tonight being our 300th post, and with the crescent moon shinning down on us, it seems a good time to instill change here at Spread Your Wings - to move forward - to grow. I don't know just how it will happen but, like the moon, it will be a gradual and may recede out of view every once in a while. / tonight mom specifically asked me for a photo of the moon. at first i couldn't see it but i went outside and there it was - a tiny white sliver in the midnight blue sky. i love a crescent moon don't you?
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
