When my granddaughter Lily was three, she would call me at my office. Hearing her sweet voice excited me so! Even more so, since she (now 8) and her family live some 800 miles away, and we don't get to see each other that often. While shopping one day, I saw this small chrome heart, picked it up, and each time I would shake it I'd hear this wonderful ringing sound. What went through my mind at that moment was...that's how my heart feels when I hear Lily's voice on the phone! I had to have two of them; one for Lily and one for me. Upon giving one to her, I explained how my heart would "sing" when I hear her voice and how shaking the heart reminded me of that same feeling. We had fun when we'd talk, just a little shake of the heart once and awhile, she'd laugh and say she knew what the noise was! The heart was a real success when she took it to school for show and tell and told the class her Gremmy Pemmy's "Singing Heart" story!
And so, that's how my saying "It Made My Heart Sing" came to be in my life.
I could have spent hours wandering around the town of Telluride, Colorado a few years ago, but my time was limited. When I came across this house, once again, my heart began to "sing". I just love the colors, the flowers, and the white picket fence! I'd love to hear what you think of it... Have a great Weekend, I know I surely will! ~Pam Lefcourt
And soo...., I think quotes are going to be a big part of my blog!
I love the one I just posted "The Perfect Day". Although, this morning I find myself quite jealous of my photo buddies who are out shooting in Vancouver! I received some images and just wish I were there with them. Along with the outrageous images was an email where one remarked to the other: "I thought I heard Pam and one of her "ooooowweeeeee's" in the lavender fields." (That's my usual sound of excitement, seeing something wonderful through my viewfinder...I just can't help it!!Let's hope I get permission to share some of those images with you. If I do, I'll update you asap. To my friends out there in Vancouver having a ball without me, (boohoo), I do love you, miss you and wish you all "The Most Perfect Day!"
"Give yourself the perfect day. Do what makes you happiest. Look upon what gives you joy. Speak to those who warm your heart. Listen to that which lifts your spirit. Surround yourself with sights and sounds and people who give you pleasure. For all the happiness you give to others all year long, give yourself the perfect day." -Unknown Author
My passion is photography! The joy begins with an exciting composition, color, light and continues as I complete the image for presentation. Through my photographs and fine art, I am able to share with you my love of Nature and the beauty that is always around us!
