While visiting my nephew’s family in Virginia, one day we drove by a blue house.

“I like that blue house,” my great-niece said.

“Me, too,” I said.

She turned around, beamed at me. “We like the same thing! Yeah, we are twins!”

Thanks for visiting my blog 😉

      Good morning, Lois. Thanks for your comment. Kids surprise us all the time, don’t they? Of course after this incident, everything she said, I had to agree with her since we are twins 😉
      Have a great day.

      Good morning, Amy. She is. Always saves the seat next to her for me… has no idea how hard it is for this old lady to climb and squeeze in between two child seats. 😉
      Have a wonderful day!

    Of course you are twins. 🙂
    Sometimes you wish they don’t have to grow up.

      Thanks, Lignum. Yes, I often told them not to grow up… the same way I told myself not to grow old.
      I meant to ask you… “I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique.” — does this mean it is ok that sometime my photo is not 100% sharp as long as it has the emotional content? I mean do you really feel that way?
      Have a great day.

    Everything we think, we hear and we see are bounded by rules, norms and values we consciously or unconsciously learn throughout the years since we grow up.
    Unlike adults, kids perceive the world in a completely different perspective, full of imagination, creativity and vitality. That inspires me a lot. That’s one of the reasons I love communicate with kids.

      Thanks, Edward. Yes, I like to talk to kids too. I don’t know about your family. When my family ate in a restaurant, we would have one table for adults and one for kids whenever the restaurant didn’t have a big enough table for all of us. And I always tried to sit with kids. 😉

    Such a wonderful photo Helen….I’ve missed seeing/reading your posts. The last I knew you had stopped writing for awhile…then I kind of disappeared. I’m glad we are both back!
    Now to catch up!

      Good morning, Tree. Yes, I have taken a long break from blogging and I have noticed your disappearance 😉 It’s hard to balance our lives, do you feel the same way? I like blogging, but I don’t want it to occupy me. Even now, I am still working on a good way to allocate my time.
      I’ve noticed that you are writing more than before. I want to tell you that I really enjoy reading your stories.
      Take care.

        It is difficult to find a balance. No matter how we do it…I am simply glad I get to see your photos again.
        I’m glad you like my stories. I do enjoy writing and hope to find more time for it in my life.
