Story eDition Inspiration

Texture Tuesday's theme this week is the Story eDition.  Kim Klassen's Cafe blog has many beautiful photographs to share.

One day after visiting the dentist in Boston, I was feeling quite discouraged.  I had learned that the amount of dental work that I needed to have done was overwhelming.  Yes, I was deep in self-pity that day.

On my way home, I passed by Boston Common.  I saw a parking spot right in front of the building where they filmed the television show Cheers.   So, I parked my car, grabbed my camera and decided to treat myself to take some photos and enjoy the park.

As I walked through this magnificent park and watched the swan boats, I came across the most amazing sight.  A beautiful swan sitting on her nest.

The scene took my breath away, and more importantly it changed my story.

Suddenly I became aware of all the beauty that surrounded me.

When I left the park, I no longer was lost in self-pity, but the joy of such beauty all around me.  So my submission for the STORY eDITION is my Once upon a time Swan.

I used Kim's Sweet Treat texture and KK primmed texture for my photo.

Perhaps we can all walk in glimpses of Once Upon A Time feelings, when we choose to get lost in the beauty that surround us.

If you stop by Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday Story eDition, you will see many beautiful Story photographs using her textures.

Memories, such sweet memories of walking with Ruben down these streets, these paths in the Boston Commons and laughing and dreaming as young students. Thank you. Anita

How beautiful the swan is...the epitome of grace. I, too, am feeling a fair amount of self-pity over dental work. Gosh it's expensive!

My precious Karen,

First of all, thank you for the TREASURY on Etsy! I am having a blast creating. Secondly, I am excited to see how you use the heart wand in your floral arrangement! If you post before I go to work, I will be here FIRST THING IN THE MORNING! Otherwise, I will be here FIRST THING BEFORE DINNER TIME! How fun this all is, isn't it?

This is a really beautiful post, Karen. Your thoughts and images are so encouraging and lovely! And the swan – magical.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I seem to have started the year off already behind, as I haven't been visiting as much as I'd like.

Wishing you a weekend filled with beauty and grace.

– g
