Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #24: Seasonal

This is my submission for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #24: Seasonal. Please follow the link to read Tina’s post.

Tina included the following quote in her post…

“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Tina, it depends on where you live, doesn’t it? 😉

Every spring, I get a new life – that’s what I like to think.

I used to cry in fall for no reason, and that confused me. I finally figured out that knowing “a half of the year had already gone by” made me feel sad. Fall is my favorite season; I can’t change how fast/slow time goes, but I can and will enjoy what I am given. I no longer cry in fall. 😉

White is one of my favorite colors, not hospital kind of white, but snow kind 😉 In my Interior Design class (long time ago), I designed a bedroom with minimum colors. My instructor asked me: “Don’t you like color?”

“I do, but I want a quiet bedroom. Color brings noise.”

Winter, mostly, is resting time (other than holidays, other than 10,000 steps…). Rest and get ready for spring.

I don’t remember having summer this year. It must because of the forgetfulness that comes with aging. Yes, Mother Nature is getting old.

Now, holiday season…

Happy Holidays!

Thanks to Tina for the interesting challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
