Mirror: “I’m multiplied!”

Mirror Weekly Photo Challenge
“Hey, that’s me! I’m multiplied, multiple times!”

As this dog walked past me and this car…I was at the right place at the right time for this reflection picture.  I really like this photo, and I’m glad to share it here.

Door – to talent!

Door
“COME ON UP HERE!”…I heard the stage calling me. I just wanted to experience the massive space, up high, across from several hundred empty chairs. It was very quiet today. Suddenly, this small door opens (small compared to the greatness of this stage area), and I saw a woman walk on to where I was planning to go. My thoughts crushed!🙂

 

Door
An outdoor performing area at the Brevard School of Music, NC. An amazing place to be. I was honored to see this place. My son, among 180 young talents, was here for six weeks this past summer for an in-depth work on his music taught by brilliant musicians.

Frame – I Saw Many!

Frame
I was walking around the promenade deck on a cruise ship. I had to halt here to see these impressive lights, especially, the bright blue lights framing the ship’s balconies, all around. Frame is what I saw from top to bottom, and right to left. I was totally wowed by this!

Door – a useful one!

Door
A very special door, for sure! My son opened this washing machine door at a laundromat near his music school. A first for me! But not for my son. (Proud Dad showing his big smile).

Almost three weeks had gone by without seeing my son in and out of the house.  This felt odd and we, his parents, missed him.  He, in the meantime, was getting comfortable in his six-week program at a music school four hours away from home.  We decided to go see him.  Yay!!

When I saw his room…shared with four other boys…all in their mid teens, I took a deep breath, and said to myself, “It looks really good in here.”  Nothing was quite in its right place, but in that mess, everything was in its right place for these boys.

My son, in the meantime, had learned to take care of himself.  Since we were there, he asked us if we could drive him to the nearby laundromat that the students had been using.  He had his quarters and his detergent.  My son seemed taller, older and so very mature.  I felt like I missed years in his life!  My eyes teared up.

After a quick tour of this place, we headed down to take care of his laundry.   We would eat lunch once the clothes were in the washer.  Then come back and put clothes in the dryer.  And, then go have some ice cream before picking up dried clothes.  At the washing machine, I was about to open his laundry bag and I heard, “I got this, Mama,”  next thing – I’m watching this big boy put his clothes in the washer.  Another teary eye moment.  I was so impressed by my son; hence the picture.  This was the first time I saw him dealing with his dirty laundry!

I am very proud of my son!  A very proud mother, indeed!

Door – A Busy One!

Door
Street in Cusco, Peru, with sidewalk raised beside this huge door. Life goes on, beside this huge door, as usual, for the locals . As for me, who was there for a couple of days this past July, this door was stunning. I had to stop and take a moment to absorb what this was. A door for sure, a huge one too. But more than that, I was amazed by how these huge doors were just a normal part of these peoples daily lives! How wonderful. And, there were hundreds of these kind of doors in Cusco.

Partners: Through and Through!

Partners
At the animal shelter… this partnership involves love, through and through. This shelter dog seem to know that, today, it’s his turn to get love from this dog-walker, who happens to be my daughter. He, too, has so much love to give. My daughter gets endless love from the shelter dogs. The partnership keeps solidifying.
