February Theme: Words of Love

by Dotti

Love is a flower … you’ve got to let it grow.
                                                                                                 ~ John Lennon

My first thought when pondering this month’s theme was that we can never celebrate love too often or too much. So why not celebrate love all month long here at Focusing on Life?

And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. And I hope we’re going to have some fun with it.

There are so many different kinds of love: romantic, parental, sibling, friends, pets … the list goes on.  As we search or create our photos for this month, let’s consider all kinds of love. Some of our photos and thoughts will be poignant; some will be sentimental; some will be humorous. All that and more is exactly what I’m after this month.

You can even go into your archives for these photos, as I did for this one. I’m sure we all have some photos showing a particularly tender moment between people who love one another. But let’s get creative, too. Let’s try to stretch our imaginations as we seek to illustrate Words of Love.

You may want to put some words or quotes on your photos. Or not. Anything goes. Maybe the photo itself says all that needs to be said. It’s all good. Follow your heart … and share with us what you find.

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
Live like it’s heaven on earth.

Let us not forget fish love or snow love. Or tea love. Or paper love. Or cloud love. I think I love a lot of things. Fog love. Rock love. Roll on February, bring us your love.

What a fabulous idea! I'd love to join in... I''m not 100% sure how it works as I have always been a casual reader but I have decide to get back into blogging more this year.
