Weekly Photo Challenge: “BIG”

This week’s photo challenge: Big! Wow, what a thought…big. Big ideas? Big dreams? Big Future? Big hopes? Big issues? Well, after contemplating on big and considering what photos I had, I went with Big stuff. This past summer we had Big plans to go on a Big road trip to visit Big name places in our Big SUV. We thought it would be a Big and wonderful idea to also visit family and friends. I must say it was a Big blessing and we had Big fun. We covered a lot of area. Here are just a few of the Big things that we saw along the way…

We truly had great fun and saw a lot of things. Wish I could show you all of our photos, but they don’t fit into the category of Big. Oh well, maybe another time. The trip for us was special. We were together sharing a common experience that created Big memories for each of us. We are all getting older. The kids are Big now and beginning to go their separate ways. So the Big trip for the summer was truly a Big Joy.

Now that I have used the word “Big” approximately 20 times, I will lay it to rest! The photo challenge once again was very enjoyable to do. Hope you enjoy it too!

Take the time and acknowledge the fact that your presence in the world makes a “Big” difference!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings, Kulia


(Oh dear, that made 21 times I used the word Big…) If you haven’t already and you would like to join the challenge here’s what you do:

Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

That Peaceful Place…



We each have one. That place where we like to go and escape from the busyness of our routine, the busyness of our minds.

What does your place look like?

I have several. Some you can’t even physically get to. Due to the demands of the day, there is a place in my “mind” that I allow to give me a peaceful moment when I can’t get away. A one minute holiday! Works wonders to get yourself back on track, motivated, refreshed and revived. Sometimes we don’t even realize our condition. We just go through treating most things mundane and mediocre. Or we get so bogged down, that the weight of things begin to be too much.

It’s great to have that peaceful place you can go. For some it may only come once a year in the form of a vacation. Others may have a hobby or sport they can routinely participate in. Still others, like me have many “outlets” to provide my escape. Life is full of wonderful places, adventures and enjoyments. We just have to take advantage of them.

So step out and do the things that you enjoy. Take time to smile, laugh, or do something you haven’t done in ages. Go out and seek a place that you’ve never been before. Often times you don’t have to go very far. You’ll be surprised of all that is out there waiting to be discovered. You’ll be more surprised at what lies inside you waiting to be released.

Take a moment, a minute holiday. Take a few hours, a day, a week, a weekend and find that place that will offer you peace and enjoyment. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy you. If anyone else happens to come along…the more the merrier.

Enjoy Life in the midst of life.
