Volume 7 - Issue 6

This week a few Facebook fans and I have been having fun on my new Fan Page. I started the page posting a mystery photo almost daily, giving the answer the next day. For the past several days, I've been posting individual views of one series of photos taken in early afternoon four years ago. The "answers" have yet to be given.

These photos still inspire and excite me when I periodically review them and I have been thoroughly enjoying them this week. It's been fun selecting which to use to maintain the "mystery" while at the same time starting to give some visual hints. Some of the "guesses" amaze and delight me, bringing a smile to my face. I invite you to come look and enjoy them also, even participate in the guessing.

Special thanks to the Picture to Ponder subscribers who have been "playing." The middle photo here today is for you, a new view not already on the Fan Page.

The other part of the game for me has become reaching at least 100 fans by 6 PM Eastern Time today. As I write, only 4 more are needed to meet that number. If you'd like to be one of them simply go to the Through and From The Lens Fan Page and click on "Like" at the end of the line of links under the name.

Bottom line, no matter what, I will publish the answers after 6:00 PM tonight on the Through and From The Lens page and then in a new post on the blog for subscribers who don't want to wait until next week. Enjoy.

Self-Reflecting Queries -
Although some of the above look like abstract paintings, neither I or the camera altered what I saw. We simply looked at many images from different perspectives.

I invite you to look at what new perspectives might be opening up for you in your life in recent days.

Above, I also mentioned smiling at the fan page activity as well as at the images that are showing up within some of the pictures.

Where in your life right now are you playing and having fun? Is there anything that's been bringing a grimace that you can turn into a smile?

And, lastly, I invite you to take a few moments to look at some of the threads of your accomplishments over the past few years, those for which you can acknowledge yourself. Are there any you might share with others that would empower you even more, simply in the recognition of it and then, perhaps, in the sharing of it with others?

As always, have fun, and please share on the blog what comes up for you.

Added thanks to those who did post responses last week to my blog queries: "What are your core messages? What do you want your world to know about you?" You can see those on February 3rd Comments.
