To be

vulnerable

is to be

brave.

It sounds lovely

and 

we'd all agree 

that's the way 

to be.

But have you ever wondered how

a rose bud's roots feel

in the chilling chamber

of 

January?

If she's ambitious

she's furious

when her plans to gracefully 

unfurl

shrivel under the demands 

of building up 

resilience.

Is she cold?

Or does she reach down for earth's

dark blanket

to embrace the blush 

that will be the rush of her outrageous reality?

Only time will strike 

at the right moment

of her debut.

 I'm experimenting with Photoshop Layers

and

this year's goal is to submit 

my heART to 

Bella Grace Magazine -

in other words,

a portion of my memoirs

and a maybe a few photos.

What daring goal do you have for 2019?

I've started another novel. Writing is all consuming for me and it has been so long formats and content have changed. I hope I'm up to it. I love Bella Grace and think it would be the perfect place for your photography. Here's to new dreams in the new year. Donna@gather

Gosh, now that is a question! :) I don’t have any daring goals for 2019. I find retirement brings a certain amount of contentment and satisfaction leaving me to enjoy quieter times. I so enjoy your posts Anita and it’s nice to have the time to appreciate them even more.

Oh, these are just exquisite photos, Anita. I really like them. That is a cool photo using the Photoshop Layers. What a lovely model you got for this picture. This is a wonderful goal of yours to submit your photos to Bella Grace. When you mentioned a rose bud's roots in the chilling weather, I smiled because they can take the harshest weather, the cold and extreme heat. That's one of the reason why I love them....they're strong, but soft. And your vulnerable self is one of the traits that I admire about YOU, ANITA! Lovely lovely post. Enjoy your weekend.

Of course you will achieve your goal my dear friend! I have no doubt. Why? Because you are always amazing! My goal? To create a journal of "important" things of life that I want my darling granddaughters to know so that when something happens along their journey they can say "Grandma told me this could happen & she told me what I might do or say or feel!" or "Grandma told me I could do or be anything I want so I have the courage to try it!" etc etc. Some of the great things I learned early were things my darling grandmother either told me or that I observed by her actions. Now it's my turn to pass it on...

Blessings for an incredible 2019! Edie Marie

Oh, Anita! I think you should submit these! They are simply glorious. Not that your images need photoshop for I think they are perfect, but it does add a layer of mystery!

Chère Anita,

Très intenses, très uniques, tes images.
Je te souhaite des jours heureux et créatifs.

Some images remain
as hidden traces
etched in the soul
so that even time is unable
to erase them.
