I especially love well crafted sentences and paragraphs. But words in general will do. Through Blogs of Photographers I found this way cool on-line application called Wordle, "a toy for generating â€œword cloudsâ€ from text that you provide". You can input any text or even input a blog address or RSS Feed to generate a beautiful word cloud that you can play around with and edit to your liking.
I had planned to do this as a word-y activity with my kids yesterday but they had other plans. So I did one myself using the text of the blog I wrote about their crafting endeavors. Follow that??
I stayed up way too late last night, having a lot of fun creating this. I can think of so many applications for this - poetry, a gift of words for family or friends, memory/photo album embellishments etc...
Check it out and have some fun.
Obedience, sacrifice, confession, repentance these are deeply personal spiritual practices, best shared in a trusted community. Unfortunately these practices and postures of the heart can become yokes that people are pressured into bearing. But condemnation, fear of failure, inadequacy is not how the Spirit moves us into spiritual discipline.
Photographing my heart's joy and delight, it's what I do. But as my "delights" grow and move to independence, as they have experiences completely apart from me, in such healthy and beautiful ways, I guess I'll content myself with photographing the morning snow.
