Hennie Mavis over at Runs Rampant tagged me to be the host of this week's WeekWord. I was a newbie, last week, but I am going to give it a try.
Balance is this week's WeekWord. (I hope no one has used it lately). Balance is something I seek in my life, something we need, something with lots of possibilities. I googled images for balance just to see what was out there and was pleased and astounded by all the possibilities. I haven't done any art, poetry, prose or photos on the topic in a while, so it will give me something to think about this week.
The post with the links is here. Please add any comments or links to that post now if you would like to play along with art, photos, poems, stories, etc. Like Hennie, I will give you until midnight Friday to post. LET ME KNOW below, and I will do a second post Saturday morning and post the links to everyone's entries. I am willing to add you in later, but I can't guarantee absolute promptness doings so.
I had another image I was going to use of a large water droplet poised and balanced on the end of a leaf, but I've misplaced it. (If I find it again, I may post it later). This is a bat, balanced by a single toe on a swaying branch. (Click image to view larger)
Here is my first "entry," which is an update/remake of a prior work I did called "Hung in the Balance, Collateral Damage." (I will do something totally brand new (for me)("nothing new under the sun"), hopefully, by Friday.) In this work, I was OUTRAGED that the military refers to the death or injury of civilians during war as "collateral damage." HUMAN LIVES! People, like you and me. :-(
