What’s in my kitchen ?

What_is_it_in_my_kitchen?0831-2I posted this photo on my dirttodelicious instagram account the other day, and also my personal Facebook account. Interesting to see what people thought it was. No right answers so far. How long should I keep them guessing ?

As is so much in life… timing is everything. ūüôā

fyi for my pixel peeping friends… I actually liked this iphone version of the shot better than my shot with macro lens and studio lights…life can be ironic in so many ways.

 

Life is a matter of perspective

Just as the  spring flowers in the desert are enjoyed by the opportunistic

The window of opportunities can often be fleeting.

 

(A thought this morning when I think back of hiking on Sunday out in the Superstition mountains)

 

 

 

 

Gardening analogy – one of many, lemons and my life.

I keep experimenting to see what REALLY works for me in life. Been doing it as long as I can remember.

When I see what works for someone else I can not help but wonder if it will work for me too.

I plant and see what happens.

I get caught in the process when I am really into it and loose track of time.

I keep working on  growing deep roots

I am so grateful when the results I am working for actually happen

I keep trying

I guess I am too foolish and  obstinate to know when to give up. More on that later.

Despite how much certain aspects of the work seem to be hard on me or/ and for me … I keep trying a way to either ignore it, find a work around, or just keep complaining about the pain and keep doing the work ‚Ķ right and not just find someone¬†¬†to pay¬†to do it!

I know if I have all these thoughts…. others do as well.

These lemons are just a few of oh so many I have harvested from our neighbor’s tree . Really not the best image for this analogy?

Thanks to our dear neighbors there has been lots  of lemonade, and varied dishes using the lemons….  and art as often as I can think to take the time.

Wondering when the lemon tree we planted last winter will bear fruit. Just covered the ground with more home grown compost and lama dung. ( another post), and free wood chips before the big rain hits.

OK- photographically…. I found that workflow for¬†¬†this image ¬†in Light Room¬†¬†to On ONE did not give me the quick and easy results I had hoped for where LR¬†to Photoshop¬†¬†worked much faster for the clean up .
