Happy New Year!!

I will be working on my children’s Picture Book project this NaPoWriMo over at my other blog, http://Journeytothetopoftheworld.wordpress.com/, with perhaps a few poems/photographs here on my usual Sunday/Wednesdays, if I find the prompt inspiring. Happy NaPo(No)WriMo, everyone ❤ 😀 !!
Your powers of observation are at random states of acuity. Do you always trust them? For this exercise/prompt close your eyes for about five minutes and get acquainted with your surroundings.

Just where I am
