In Boston to be/”on the move” often involves/sitting still, honking
Moving so quickly/Through the sky and above clouds/Strangely, I feel still
Moving at sunrise/Sixty-five on the highway/Yields charcoal drawing
A beagle at rest/Oxymoronic at best/High energy pup
Memorial Bridge/Its massive moving towers/Are lit up at night
A checklist for flight/On a cold winter morning/Wind sweeping feathers
Movement leaves a blur/While the branches hold steady/Berries seem to float
Most of my inspiration strikes while I’m on the move, or looking at something else in motion.
I might be on a trek through the woods or an adventure–and occasionally a near-international incident–on the other side of the world.
I might hear a song on the radio while travelling–or while stalled in traffic–and be hurled into a Tralfamadorian tailspin, on the move through time and space.
The flash of a deer’s tail or a rabbit on the run might take me somewhere else entirely.

Wonderful selections for the theme, Stephanie! Happy Sunday 🙂
Thank you! The crazier the surrounding workdays become, the more I relish the relative sanity of Sundays with my little camera.
I agree. It gives us a nice balance 🙂
Great way of capturing the theme of the week! Well done!
Thank you–this was one of those photo themes that was at first hard to figure out, and then turned out to be difficult to narrow down (that’s when those photo galleries come in handy).
