Nowhere I’d Rather Be – WPC
“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
Our challenge this week is to share the thing(s) we’d “rather be doing”. It’s an interesting thought isn’t it? Somehow it pushes us to examine what we love, and to make sure we’re spending our time – life’s most precious element – appropriately.
“We need much less than we think we need.”
I’ve featured two of my favorite things, travel and golf, in my opening captures. I also love reading, writing, playing my piano, spending time with friends and family and of course, photography.
Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky.”
Those who know me well know that I love games that challenge the brain – cards, sudoku, crosswords, trivia and most especially Mah Jongg. The capture above is from a game we happened upon when we were in China – where they take their MJ much more seriously 😀. Happily our weekly game is more about socializing than competition – although we do work hard for our quarters!
“Contentment is the greatest treasure.”
I love walking our beautiful beach here on Kiawah where there is always something new to see and to shoot. This week the tide pools were amazing as my husband and I strolled to the very end of our pristine island. Birds were pecking away at water’s edge and the sun shone beautifully as we enjoyed the return of spring’s warm breezes.
“Contentment is the only real wealth”
Most of all, I love spending time relaxing at home with my husband of 20+ years. Sharing life with my best friend, whom I still love more every day, means there’s really nothing at all I’d rather be doing. And that is really saying something, isn’t it?
By the way, it’s often noted that the best camera is the one you have with you. This week’s captures were made with a mix of my Nikon DSLRs, my Fuji X-T2 and my iPhone 8+. Can you guess which is which?
