Friday Faves

I was trying to decide if my Friday Faves fit in the personal passions category when I realized that I am passionate about every one of the topics represented here.  I love music.  Some days I feel as though I live to read.  I love to laugh.  I love to create, but even more to celebrate great ideas.  I love my iPhone, and sweets, great quotes, blogging, and Pinterest.  I am passionate about short films and photography, too.  So, from me to you.  Happy, passionate Friday. 

* A Song: "Feelin' Nothing" by Kristin Kelly 

* Great (but very dark) Read: Darling Jim by Christian Moerk

* A Lesson: Early this week I'd had a terrible, terrible day and I couldn't seem to shake it off even hours after I'd gotten home.  Finally, I grabbed my camera and spent about an hour photographing the fading tulips on my table.  When I was finished, my attitude was better and my spirit was renewed.  It was a good reminder of how important it is to make time for activities that feed your soul.

I like the photo. I adore tulips, in all of their glory & decline. You make a compelling case for using unhappy energy to feed your soul. I need to remember your lesson. Very smart.

Hi Relyn,
I am glad that photographing the tulips brightened an otherwise not so good day. We need these things as often as possible I think.
Thanks for all the lovely links, I enjoyed them all, but especially the blog you linked to and the faded feminine beauty-just beautiful!

How interesting to read how you lifted yourself up at the end of a bad day. Yes, even the end of a flower's life is beautiful.
