Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

    They don’t look nearly as graceful when they stand and stretch.

    such a powerful photo to use as a single image post – well done Linda
    and the wings almost made it feel like this was some type of great painting –
    and I like how you said “poetry in motion: in one of the comments – that sums it up so well

      Thank you so much Yvette! I originally was going to just put this as the last photo in the swan Spring Preening series, but something about the way the swan was gazing upward and the wings were not like the other photos, I decided to associate it with yoga. That swan looked to me like he was transported to another world didn’t it? I think it is the same for humans with the sun on their face – it makes you feel alive. We had another crummy, all-day rain today. The weather folks said it would be a rainy Spring and it has been; day after day of gloomy and rainy weather.

    Despite this being a “Wordless Wednesday” post, I love “Swan Sun Salutation”. The photo makes me think “Sun” almost could’ve been “Song”. Good one, Linda!

      Thanks Dave – with the ice now gone, there will be less swans gathering in this cove area, so it is like a swan song. This swan looked so caught up in its stretch and looking up at the sky/sun, I thought “I have to use a title like that.” Swans out of the water, especially this one, don’t resemble those graceful gliding creatures we are accustomed to seeing.
