Whatsoever is Lovely Challenge-2022 Week 28

This challenge is simple: step back for a few minutes each week to find a lovely thing, a precious moment, anything you find lovely. Then post about it. You can just post a picture or you can go into detail and tell it as a reflection, story or poem.

It could be anything:

a smile…a rainbow…a flower…a kind act…a tasty treat

What was lovely in your life this week?

Lovely posts from last week

My lovely for this week

We had a perfect summer day on the beach last Sunday: Watching the geese, looking for crabs, rowing, Dad vacuuming the roof (to each their own) and the MOTH playing with his boat.

It made me think of Enya’s song “A Day Without Rain”.

Ever close your eyes?
Ever stop and listen?
Ever feel alive
And you’ve nothing missing?
You don’t need a reason,
Let the day go on and on.
Let the rain fall down
Everywhere around you.
Give into it now,
Let the day surround you.
You don’t need a reason,
Let the rain go on and on.

What a day, what a day to take to.
What a way, what a way to make it through.
What a day, what a day to take to a wild child.

Only take the time
From the helter skelter.
Every day you find,
Everything’s in kilter,
You don’t need a reason,
Let the day go on and on.
Every summer sun,
Every winter evening,
Every spring to come,
Every autumn leaving.
You don’t need a reason,
Let it all go on and on.

What a day, what a day to take to.
What a way, what a way to make it through.
What a day, what a day to take to a wild child.

I’m adding a link to Len’s Artists’ Summer Vibes Challenge.

And my roses are still blooming!

They’re getting a bit spotty now, but boy has this been a beautiful year for roses!

Join in!

I will post once a week, Sunday at noon in Seattle (8pm GMT) is my goal, and put a list of posts from the previous week in it. Basically using the same method I do with the Pull up a Seat Challenge. Detailed instructions are on the page: Whatsoever is lovely blog challenge.

Background

We live in a world that seems to value drama, anger, fear and violence. Being mean often passes for being smart. These are the things that “go viral”, magnified in the media. Sometimes, the things that really make life worth living are small and simple. They don’t make for good TikTok. This is a chance to share that type of moment from our lives.
