  1. The words and the picture work very well together and emotionally complements each other. The composition emphasizes the message of hope leaping from the darker lower right to the light upper left. Very nicely done.

    • So pleased to hear that the message synchronized and came through….wasn’t sure if it might be considered too cryptic….finding creative balance is challenging as I’m sure you know….:)

    This picture echoes the theme of many gospel songs, longing to cross to that beautiful, distant shore, where the shadows are lifting, and earthly troubles are no more.

    I wish I was sitting by that flagpole, watching my bobber, just starting on my second ham & cheese, and digging into the cooler for a couple of Oreos and another brewski.

    • Awesome…that’s all I can say too…how could it be that we are on the same wavelength more than 3000 miles away…probably more…and I love lemons….can suck them raw….now you know everything about me…:)

  6. Beautiful. I always feel a deep sense of myself when I sit at the waters edge. It certainly evokes the feelings/thoughts certainly happen…but so wonderful that Hope leads at the end. Hoping that your hope is flowing… Blessings, Erin

    • It does seem like a natural progression….been going through quite a rough patch….but I feel my hope returning….always frightening when it becomes debatable….thanks for the wonderful comment and the blessings too….:-)

    • So happy it resonated….like I told Otto (up top)…wasn’t sure if the message was clear enough….:)
