FUN scary night…

I don’t share many “people” images, but thought those not in Chicago might enjoy seeing how one section of Chicago celebrated Halloween last night. Halsted Street’s 22nd Annual Halloween Parade begins with a flash mob doing Thriller. It was a celebratory, unusual warm 50’s, so prime party weather which brought out MANY participants and viewers. This parade is adult oriented; multiple events for children happened over the past weekend. Because sometimes adult need to play!! ALL images copyright 2018 Pamela Beitberg

Embrace each moment, each person….

The world is rich with diversity in nature and it’s people. That’s what makes it so wondrous. Today the brilliance and awesomeness of each of us feels dimmed because of multiple, hatred attacks to too many. May we grieve and know that it is OUR love and faith that will make each day most special; each moment a miracle unto itself. May we be strengthened by each sweet moment today. May we embrace each other and radiate the love that makes life wonderful. ………….Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Sunny outlook…

Sometimes looking at things a different way shines needed new light on a situation or person. Practicing observations from varying points of view keeps us ready when we need to change our outlook. Copyrightela Breitberg

Stop, look, and listen. Good advice in the past and right now. Stay open minded so you can allow time to look and listen closely and in different ways. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Sometimes it’s best to go with the wind…

I remind myself

Many times a day, a week,

To accept what I can’t control.

To accept what I can’t change.

I remind myself to let life flow

To take advantage of winds of change

And use change to move forward.

I remind myself life is richer

When I embrace the flows of my life.

Lifestyle contrasts…

The cats on this quaint street in Miami easily roamed from backyard to sites around the neighborhood. The dog was too large to fit between the fence rails ensuring it’s limited experiences. The differences in their demeanor were striking to me.

Never ending…

Could not help myself. HAD to do two more revisions. Guess one is never satisfied with one’s artwork? My photographs that aren’t perfect lead me to making more photographs. But with painting I have a new option of being able to revise……..which is both great and obsessive. I declare this done now.

Second revision; but didn’t like the super heavy Palm leaf in the center. Also wanted more building showing. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
