The JOY Dare [Jan. and Feb.]

Friday Feature 4.20.2012


This weeks Friday Feature is by 4096colours! I can’t help but imagine what conversation might be going on here. This Italian scene sparks imagination and holds the interest. Great capture, 4096colours!

1. Lets in LIGHT

2. Keeps out harmful substances

Let my soul be a window.



Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
- Thomas Blackburn, An Easter Hymn

“…being wide-awake to each moment of the desperately precious here turns out to be much harder and more wonderful than the dream of having it all.” – Lisa-Jo
