When I sat at the dining room table and looked into the kitchen, I saw the yellow bowl with the light shining through it. Right after I took this picture, the sun disappeared and it was a regular old Pyrex bowl. This is a bowl like the one my mother stirred her whole wheat bread dough, covered with a tea towel, let it rise. Large yellow Pyrex bowl on kitchen table

Walking to book club (to discuss The Madonnas of Leningrad), I came across this single blossom which had poked through the slats of my neighbor’s fence. The setting sun illuminated the new green leaves. Unretouched Photo.
A found rainbow at dawn.
Right on my polka dot sheets. I’ve put away the flannel ones until next winter.
This week’s challenge is your place in the world.
My comfortable bed seemed a good place to start the day, finding my place in the world.
Mend Way. Bloomfield. Right near West Penn Hospital. The one block alley/road between Millvale Avenue and Gross Street. I looked down while walking to my car.
All these textures!
Gravel, bricks, sand, dirt, concrete,dried leaves, my leather boot, cigarette butts and the shadows of the chain link fence.
There are many “Ways” in our city. I looked at the list of Street Names and wondered what determined the definition. Merriam-Webster says “Definition of way. 1 a : a thoroughfare for travel or transportation from place to place. b : an opening for passage.”
After supper, Maura asked to go to the playground. Walking down my driveway, back from playing across the street -I saw the sinking sunlight through this weedy leaf.
Such bright green. The rays a bonus, shooting into sun.
The phone so readily available from my pocket. One quick shot. Just like that.
