WPC – Transitions


<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/transition/”>Transition</a&gt;

There are numerous transitions to choose from so I decided to share photos of two. The first is transitions in seasons and hours of the day.

Two of my favorite places in Stillwater, NY are the National Historical Park (Saratoga Battlefield grounds of Revolutionary War) and the Stillwater Block House. The Block House was in the Saratoga Battlefield when I was a child through to my young adult years. Because it was not original they wanted it removed. The Historical Society was given land on a farm to relocate the House however access was difficult. After many years of fund-raisers the Block House found a home along the Hudson River in a newly created park. There are benches and this is now a small historical tourist attraction. If you are ever traveling through the area stop and take a look maybe even a walk in the Saratoga Battlefield.

The second set of photos is a transition from dough to decorated Christmas cookies.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time last year making sugar cookie dough, cutting out the shapes, baking and decorating the cookies. Then of course we enjoyed eating some of the dough and cookies before sharing them with friends and family. Looking forward to this year’s Christmas cookie bake. Another transition we had in our family was the birth of Cassie’s son on Sept. 14th so we will have a new little helper. Ok, he may not really be any help but it will be fun singing Christmas carols to him as we prepare the cookies. Transitions are a constant in families – babies are born, others die, and new people join through marriage or relationships. One never knows from one year to the next what life changes will occur.

We live through many transitions throughout each day of our life. Try to be open and allow because transitions are a part of life just as day turns to night, summer turns to autumn then to winter, spring and back to summer – everything is in transition. Remember to stop and pay attention to your breath once in a while – be present in the moment and live mindfully enjoying the small things – the smell of coffee or tea, fresh air, the taste of a treat, warmth of soup as it fills your belly, sitting in front of a fire on a cold day, placing your feet in the cool water or dirt on a hot summer’s day. What do you find pleasure in when weathering storms? Those are the times when we sometimes forget, yet they are the times when its beneficial to be aware.

Love and Light!
