I have been nominated by Elaine of I Used to Be Indecisive to participate in the Five Photos, Five Stories meme, which simply says I should “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
We have all heard about wishing on a star, but did you know you can wish upon tide pools too? At the coast recently, we visited the tide pools near the Yaquina Head lighthouse, and I caught The Artistic One wishing upon a tide pool. They are fascinating really, tide pools. Little creatures abound, urchins gently waving in the movement of the water, hermit crabs moving themselves with their houses from one place to another, avoiding detection, moving because – well, the grass is always greener, isn’t it? It can be hypnotic, the search for life, the hope for a surprise, the wishing for – what? More? Less? Happiness? Peace? Maybe just wishing for Enough.
Yes, Enough. That’s all any of us can ask.
This week I’d like to nominate Lisa of Peripheral Perceptions. I know your life is hectic, Lisa, so I can understand if you feel this is just a bit too much right now.
