Focus on Life Week 12 - Observe the Curves

For this week's Focus on Life prompt, 'Observe the curves' we are reminded  - Branches of trees curve to embrace the breeze.  Letters curve and form words.  Curves can keep things apart, hold things together or create a path.  This was another example of wanting to find something different to photograph but ending up with the most obvious choice of all.  
The curve in the road - where does this path lead?  
To warmth and welcome, comfort and shelter, grandkids, food, family and friends, love and laughter, hugs and kisses.  The curve in this road leads HOME.  The place where I am inspired to make art and bead work.   I couldn't think of a better curve to photograph!

More random Curves found on my daily walks - trees lining my driveway

Dried Grasses - a reminder of what was or what will be?

Nature's curves are always amazing - I love the quite hope in all your pictures: yes, the snow might cover the road, but there is hope in there, the road is the path to somewhere, maybe warm and friendly :) Lovely curve to drive you home!

The best curves are the ones that lead home. I really like that photo .. a great path carved into the snow. :)

Katherine, I still think Dorothy said it best: there's no place like Home! When our hearts and spirits are strained, that last curve in the road before we glimpse the lights of home are such welcome relief. Beautiful reflections!

Beautiful. I love the bits of roads that lead home that you could almost do with your eyes closed.... I used to bus home from university and the turn before my stop was the only left of the whole route. That curve meant I could grab a quick nap and wake up just in time to ring the bell to get off :)

What a great post! I love the tree photo and how the curves in the branches seem to be the same.

The road looks very snowy! I keep hearinga bout all the storms/snow that Alberta is getting.. I actually put on flip flops Thursday to pick my way through the slush to the mail box because it was +9... lovely pictures but I'm looking forward to green grass and flowers!

Stacie said...

This really resonated with me, as I am looking for my home, and anxiously awaiting the time when I am familiar with all the curves of it...beautiful!

As has been noted already, nature does provide some of the best curves. Hope spring comes your way soon.

A curve in the road leading home. The best curve there is.

Hi Katherine,
Yes the curve that leads to home is always the best curve to encounter. It looks like it was a beautiful day when you took these pictures! I thought about taking a picture of the tree tops in my yard too.

What a lovely path to take to get home. One can almost feel the warmth waiting at the end.
