I must say that I felt initial dismay and a silent ‘oh no’ hummed in my head when I read that The Daily Post prompts for the weekly photo challenge is winding down. What a bummer! I feel like my favourite neighbour has just moved out of town, like my age-old, worn and comfy dressing gown has finally fallen apart at the seams.
The challenge is/was a powerhouse of creativity and inspiration and I remember many Saturdays when I would check out the prompt to ginger my creative juice. Anyway, change is a constant thing, otherwise, life will stagnate and become a monotonous bore. Who knows, maybe something equally as interesting will come up.
When I think of it, I realize that I have no favourites photos per se, but there were some prompts that I really enjoyed and got some messages whilst doing them especially the one below.
I don’t like saying goodbye ‘cos it sounds final and makes me sad. I prefer to say fare thee well, for it’s a prayer for better tidings, bestowed to you. It makes me feel less teary and turning into a sniffy, watering pot, knowing that you are safe and snuggly somewhere, I’ll remember you with fond thoughts.
Isn’t this how we feel about things we’ve grown used to and grown to love? We just don’t want it to end, we just don’t want it to change even when the new thing promises to be good and maybe better even?
Change we must for change is inevitable. To move up to higher grounds, we often have to let go of our inhibitions and climb up the ladder.
So, here’s my farewell to WQWWC and hello to Tuesday Tanka. It’s been a lovely ride. I might still indulge myself with some Wednesday quote now and again. I hate to fly solo, so join me if you wish to dive into quotes.
Thank you, to Colleen and Ronovan for being such gracious hosts.
