Right Now

Right now, I am enjoying a home baked gingersnap and a fresh cup of coffee...


Right now, I am wrestling with the dark side of me, the side that can be "malevolent and damaging"-primarily to myself.

By the time you read this, both "right now moments" will be gone. I will have moved on to other moments.

Also right now, we are in the midst of a weather event that is dumping rain on us and prompting flash flood warnings. By the time you read this, I hope that has moved on.

Right now, I am smiling and waving. Do you see me?

(This is my contribution to Gallery 38 of the 52 Photos Project, "Right Now." and, you might notice, I mentioned week two's verb "wrestle" in this post. There will be more to come with the verb of the week, but first I have to ponder.)

  3. Documenting your dark side is just as important as documenting the good side. Good for you!

  4. We are so often damaging to ourselves. I see you wrestle with dichotomy, too. Your top photo made me smile, the bottom one is so intense.

    1. Wrestling with dichotomy, wrestling of any kind, really, is not so easy, is it?!

  5. Dark sides are important to acknowledge, and gingersnaps are good to have.

    1. The gingersnaps were wonderful.

      The tunnel is bearable when I remind myself the feelings (and the darkness) are temporary (and a bit irrational).

  7. Hoping the bad weather passed through with no harm done. I have lowered my coffee intake to just two or three a day; but one with a friend and conversation shared is always a nice event,,,,
