Thematic Photographic 236 - White

Not going anywhere
Toronto, ON
February 2013
The groundhogs apparently got it wrong, as despite their prediction of an early spring, winter shows no signs of loosening its grip on the region anytime soon.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over it, mind you, because it's rather pointless to fret over things we cannot control. There are so many better ways to expend energy.

Like...this! I've been away from Thematic for a bit. Life threw us a curve and unlike in baseball, we don't simply get up, dust ourselves off and move on. The process is a lot more ponderous than that, and I'm deeply thankful for the notes of encouragement I've received from all of you over these past few weeks.

So here we go. A little late. And not quite "there" yet. But getting there. Because there really is no other choice.


Your turn: Please share a photo that reflects, supports or otherwise evokes this week's Thematic theme, white. As ever, how you interpret it is entirely up to you: there are no rights and wrongs in this game. Share a pic on your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the joyness of all that is Photographic (yes, I make up words.) Click here for more background on how Thematic works. Thanks gang...it's good to be somewhat back.

All the snow has finally melted here, including the 5" of ice I had packed down driving on my driveway. As for "white", Here's mine.

So happy you're back- and I'm so proud of my iPhone for taking all my posted photos and allowing me to post straight away to Blogger- all from the comforts of not using a computer! Bravo hi-tech world we live in. (I know most of you have already been doing this, but not me!!! Until now!) Here's mine

Welcome back Carmi- thinking of you and your family.
No snow here for white- barely even the first hints of autumn- but here is my selection of 'white' outdoor shots. http://kiwinomad06.blogspot.co.nz/2013/03/tp236-white.html
