Rainbows and retirement......

Week 42 of the Kim Klassen 'Be Still 52' workshop.....

10 weeks left to go......10 shots..... my photography has improved, I look at ways of taking shots and what might work in different ways.....I've developed a kind of style.....I wish it was linens and French Grey.....its not!

I closed my psychotherapy practice this week after 44 years of working as a social worker and then a therapist....I know!

Im feeling a bit undone sometimes.....quite a bit relieved sometimes......a bit sad sometimes.....feel that I should have spent my time drinking Proseco rather than wondering what hit me!

I finished a couple of projects in the studio and had a big tidy up.....these cards and words were left overs from a 52 card, weekly word set.......

The prompt is about using a crate....I used a wooden box on my old studio stool.

Although its freezing here today the sun was streaming into my studio and I ran to collect some crystals to reflect the light....and then there was a rainbow in my room.

Retirement and rainbows......


  1. Wonderfully is a mixture of many things....but the rainbows will win out.

  2. The rainbow from the crystal and the sun was a little gift! Thank you for calling by Jo........

  3. Beautiful! Congrats on your retirement, just think of the all the rainbows to come.

  4. Ah thank you Carol.....wishing you rainbows in your life too!

  5. Such wonderful bright colours, the crystals and the rainbow are simply beautiful! Thank you for your comment today, I really appreciate your thoughts. (Janet @ Prairie Sage)

  6. Thank you For calling by Janet.

  7. Congratulations on your retirement! I can relate to your mixed feelings about retiring--I experienced the same sorts of emotions when I first retired and still do on occasion, but life is so much less stressful now and I feel like everyday is a Friday afternoon (my favorite part of the week when I was working!). Have a Prosecco and celebrate!!! (What the heck, have 2, you're retired!!!)

  8. Hi Roxanne.....I'm feeling the relief already after the Easter break of not getting back into that work be honest it's another cuppa rather than another bottle! Did photography happen before you stopped regular working...or afterwards?
