One Is Enough

"One" © Paula Scott Molokai Girl Studio



One. It is not the loneliest number that you'll ever see. I think that often, one is enough.

One prayer. One love. One child. One house. One car. One glass of wine. One shadow. Why is it that we are compelled to want more than one of anything? I don't know if anyone has that answer. I know I am a 'hoarder' of shadows and of other images. Oh, and lots of other things too. Guilty as charged. I think I'm 'wired' that way.

On a completely different note, I look back to a post I did in June about everything being so dry and brittle due to having too many sunny days. Wow, what a turnaround! Just yesterday, we got nearly 4" of rain and an 1 3/4" the day before. Even though there's been some flooding in parts of the state and damns overflowing, I don't think anyone is really complaining since it is much needed moisture. Makes me wonder what the winter will bring.






Come join us every week, as a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

We humans are indeed quite imperfect - we rarely stop at one of anything. However, in many areas we cannot have too much of:
- the capacity to love and care
- the will to work and create
- shadow capturing

A bit of compulsion to do the right thing is fine by me!

I am happy that the parched southwest is getting some rain. The water of life we do need, and it is good that you have an abundance. Of course, nature only provided a lot or a little at its own whim...

You're right. One is enough. Most of us, myself included, want more!

Beautiful image and true words. I think we'd all be better off if we knew how to be content with just enough.

I agree with Robin..one glass of wine is hard. As is one scoop of ice cream.

But being happy with one of something, that's a good thing!

Strange how we always want more.

It goes back to that first potato chip - one really is not enough but as to other things - one is definitely enough. I am amazed at those people who own more than one home but then I couldn't own more than one because I don't have the money to own two or more. We seem to be creatures of cravings.

Yes, lovely photo, very nice play of light, shadows, textures and shapes!

I like the idea of one! and one shadow image is enough - bullseye!

Here in Finland we've had a best summer for ages - still nice, not too cold, not too rainy. It's going to be interesting if we jump straight to winter, without traditional autumn. We'll see...
Have a good week!
