It’s that time again… The monthly Twelve by Twelve Project blog circle. This month’s theme is “shadows.” The lovely Rita of Infinity Photography by Rita of Tampa, Florida will be judging the images submitted on the Twelve by Twelve Facebook page, so if you’d like to be a part of the fun, head on over.

If you know my work, then you know it tends to be bright and fun, so taking on a theme like “shadows” was a little more challenging then our previous monthly themes. I think it’s important as artists that we push ourselves and step out of our comfort zone every once in awhile. That’s how we grow. And ironically, the theme is pretty fitting for this place in our lives.

After a move, whether it’s near or far (ours happened to be across the country), you end up in this waiting place.

Waiting to feel at home.
Waiting for things to not look so strange.
Waiting to make new friends.
Waiting for the rain to stop.
Waiting for the sun to shine.
Just waiting.

I catch my boys peeking out of the window like this throughout the day. Tonight, the light just happened to be perfect. We heard thunder and were waiting for the rain.

Waiting.
