tagged me to play in the blog game where
you go back in your blog post archives
and find the 6th photo you ever uploaded on your blog
and show it, link back to the post it was part of

way -- a way that perhaps it was not used in the
My 6th picture is the colorful bird eggs in the pretty
cast iron urn...
It originally appeared as part of
March of 2008, and I had been to visit the daughter of a friend
who was in Moffitt Cancer Center being treated for leukemia --

I was contrasting her life to the lives most of us live -- and how she would have
given anything to be back in what we might easily call the "drudgery of life"
(daily chores, chauffeuring kids around, etc.).
I'd included just some various pretty photos from around the house
in that particular post, and the 6th image was of the fragile eggs in the urn.
As I see that picture now, it is timely, I suppose, because it is Spring and new life has
already begun to burst forth -- and the eggs make me think of that.
Perhaps I could also rekindle thoughts of that photo in saying that
I'm hopeful for a renewed sense of life and "zest for living"
as I forge my way on now through the balance of this wonderful year.
There is the promise of much that is new and fun and lovely --
much like the promise of new life inside those beautifully colored eggs.
Yet -- like those eggs, life is fragile.
Beautiful. But fragile, none the less.
So with that, I've shown you my

handful of other bloggers to
