PhotoChallenge 21 - zen

this is a hard challenge for me, plus it has been cold and the kids have the crud so I haven't been able to go out and search for my Zen. Here are a few pictures from the archives.
Zen to me is something simple that can make you think, remember and comtemplate. Something you can look at and feel a sense of calm. Here are my pictures.This is a giant dandylion....I love them. They remind me of simpler times when you could blow on one and make a wish and the seeds would scatter with wind. They are little seeds of hope. I love the sky. Clouds, stars, a clear sunny day, fog, rain, sleet , snow. I am like the postoffice, no matter weather, I am so there.


trees are kind of amazing. "big and strong" according to Lilly. The start out small and grow and become so majestic, provided man doesn't chop them down first.


these are Lilly's toes in the water. There is something about water and lilly's desire to be in it. Ocean, lakes, pools, bathtubs or even the kitchen sink (no joke). Water makes her happy. Water is lilly's zen.
