Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




The door to freedom
Wanderlust life without restraint
Open road and space

I am killing two birds with one stone in response to the weekly photo challenges: Symbol and Door.

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  8. Yes! I know exactly what you are talking about.


  9. I can’t wait to explore more of your blog. You had me at the title.


  10. Love the photo — and yes — I feel that wanderlust too. Sigh.

    BTW — “fire ants” appeared in my reader but not here on your blog. But it was a riot — LOVED it. “The little bastards!” 😀

  11. I will post that again soon. I accidentally hit publish and retracted since I am still working on the photo. Thanks for the support though. Your positive critique means I will leave the poem as is.

  17. Geez, I owe you a big apology. I had not seen your posts on my feed for a while and I wondered if you had gone off grid. I was going to do a search when you were kind enough to post comments. I then discovered that for some reason I was no longer following you. I certainly didn’t unfollow on purpose I promise you. Blame it on clumsy fingers.


  18. WP sometimes unfollows us on its own. Christy. No apologies needed. On the flip side, I hope you can enjoy my method of providing multiple posts commenting.
