THE PEACE OF WILD THINGS
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

See you in the new year!
You all killed it this week. I seriously didn't want to stop at 11 favorites. So I didn't! Photographing those dramatic pockets of light makes my heart race. Thank you to everyone who shared.

'Pockets of Light'
"I was beyond excited when I was contacted to be a guest judge; I love everything about the page and the absolute beauty of all the fantastically flawed images. Thank you for all playing along with the theme this week; you are all perfectly flawed!

'Same But Different'
I loved this introspective theme and viewing all of your images. I had a difficult time in choosing favorites, because for me it isn't about competition, it is about the unique voice of the artist and how a theme might be interpreted. Thank you for always sharing. xx
weeks 11.19.14 through 12.2.14
With regards to this theme, I can honestly say there were four images that I just could not choose from, you will see why. I chose one winner, three runners up and the top 10 are below.

A beastly elegance in this child's portrait by Kelly Tyack. I kept thinking 'the beast within'.
