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

My lovely for this week
It’s been dark. The days are short and the weather has been overcast. Too dark to take photos hand held most of the time. I’ve been hibernating a bit, leaning into the gray instead of fighting it.
We had the MOTH’s uncle and cousin over. We hadn’t seen them for quite a while and it gave me a reason to bust out my kitchen moves. It’s been a while.
I’ve been working on learning Blender (3-D graphics program). This is my current work in progress:
It combines what I learned from about ten different YouTube tutorials from different people. I’m hoping to add in some animation similar to this, from an earlier project:
It’s challenging because my computer isn’t really up to much. But it keeps the synapses firing. And I can relax in my pleasant living room
… instead of heading out into the gray.
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.
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.
