Innocence

The word “innocent” from its Latin root means “not wounded.” That’s how we all start life. We're all innocent. It doesn't have anything to do with moral right or wrong. It has to do with not being wounded yet. We start unwounded.  ~Richard Mohr

Wouldn't life be so much more different if we never lost our innocence? Different in the sense of better-how could it not be better? I can't help but wonder.

I think this is the first shadow shot that my husband pointed out before I noticed it in our patio. He said, "wow-that's a neat shadow!". I am so proud that he noticed it first! Shadows are not anything he pays attention to in day to day life. Which, for me, noticing them is all part of learning to live in the moment-and loving all the mundane aspects of each moment. Mundane is good, you know. I'd take that over drama any day!

While you're at it, come join us as a group of us (yes-there are many 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 are pure in the beginning - but evil all about our lives, it is hard to remain as innocent as we need. But we persevere in keeping as pure as we can. Faith helps...

Great shadows, the sunny polka dots dancing for the camera!

What an outstanding series. Must admit, I was surprised to discover it was a shadow. Isn't it nice to know that even now, you can influence your husband; you can open his eyes. Occasionally I get similar surprises.

I agree! No drama needed.
(Why I didn't think like that when under 20 heheheheh!)
Happy, relaxing Sunday!

Sometimes the simplest objects make the most interesting shadows.
