52 Photos Project – Week 13

This week over at 52 Photos the prompt was Layers/Stacks. Seeing as I have stacks of books everywhere in my house (I have a small problem) I figured it would be an easy choice to just snap one of those. I still opted to go with a stack of books but decided to share some of the books that I am reading right now. I tend to read multiple books at once; it’s a problem, I’m in therapy πŸ™‚ but I digress. I mentioned in a previous post that I was on the verge of an unraveling in my life. Well each of these books is contributing to that unraveling but in a positive way. Here is my pic for this week:

The little statue was handmade in Kenya and was a gift from a friend. I call him The Thinker and having him in this pic just makes sense given all the thinking these books are prompting. Lighting candles as a way of centering myself is something I am just beginning to tap into but the label on this candle says Care and it also felt appropriate for this picture. I have another post coming that explains in more detail how these books are contributing to my unraveling. I started to include it in this post but it felt too off-topic. So I changed my mind and made that into its own post. Come back later this week to read more.

To see the other pics in this week’s gallery you can click here. And despite my best efforts I am still getting this post in just under the gun. One of these weeks I will make it well ahead of schedule. Next week’s prompt is Down Below. No idea what I’m going to do with this one. Here’s hoping some serious inspiration hits me this week. Until next time, thanks as always for stopping by to read my random ramblings.

  1. I just laughed when I read about your therapy…I can’t tell you how many years I’ve tried to make it my new years resolution to read only ONE book. Finally, I just gave up. Just not gonna happen!!! Love the photo…now on to the next week challenge which is a tough one!

    • You and I are definitely kindred spirits πŸ™‚ Sometime you just have to accept that something just isn’t going to happen; that would be me trying to read only one book at a time. As always I do appreciate you stopping by and the encouraging words. No idea what I’ll be doing for this week’s prompt but I’m sure inspiration will hit me at some point (here’s hoping anyway πŸ™‚ )

  2. I tend to have several books going at once – too many interests, too little time. Your photo is awesome – and really captures the spirit of unravelling, centering… Best of luck with your new meditation practice – I look forward to hearing about it.

    • Thank you Karen. I appreciate the encouragement. Seems a couple of people share my problem of not being able to read just one book πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by
