Volume 6 - Issue 35

Hi {!firstname},

There are times I "go with my gut" in the photos I feature in Picture to Ponder. Today's photos are indicative of that. Not especially beautiful or, necessarily, compelling they kept coming up for me, getting in the way of making other choices.

Given, I am currently in a program focused on becoming attuned to my intuition, I decided to let them be. Perhaps they will have meaning for one or more of our subscribers. Please let me know if this fits for you in some way.

In a different conversation, my friend Ellen Britt has put together a program chock full of information from six experts in the field of Social Media Marketing. I suggest checking it out if you are seeking more knowledge on effectively using any of the following for increasing business - Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Cleverly presented, with the investment escalating over a period of 6 days, Ellen has titled it Ice Cream Social Media Sale. See Social Media. And, in another food family (though not edible given they are wild) here are

Today's Photos -
The top photo is an overview of the four mushrooms (see below) that caught my eye, one of which were twins. The three other photos are different views of the same plant.

Today's Photo Story -
I probably could make up a lot of stories around these mushrooms and bottom line I pretty much said it all above. Two days ago I happened to look out my window at the lawn on the side of the house across the street from me and noticed the very large mushrooms, almost looking like something had "landed" there.

I grabbed my camera, went out, and took several pictures. Because of the lines and the patterns, the overall rhythm, I think, the one that was on its side most appealed to me. At first, I thought it had "fallen over". When I attempted lifting it off the ground to take further pictures, I found that it was firmly rooted in the ground and was growing that way.

Self-Reflecting Queries -
Has anything caught your attention lately, visually or otherwise, and left you wondering why?

When this happens, does it stay with you for dwelling on? Do you look for and add meaning or does it seem to find you?

Do today's mushrooms, or the circumstances of them, have any particular meaning for you?

If so, especially because of my intuition exploration, I'd appreciate your writing about them in the COMMENTS section on the BLOG. Or, send your thoughts directly to me.
Thank you so much.


For Business Owners for whom Blogging is still a mystery -
September 13th is the start of Bea Fields next Become a Blogging Maniac 12-week program, full of "Nuts and Bolts" and "hand-holding" during the calls, if so needed. I have participated in the course twice and from my perspective there is no one on the Internet who offers as much valuable content for an investment of less than $100. See Become a Blogging Maniac Scroll down past the option links for full details of what's included in the program.
