Making stars against violence


May 13 we, as Soroptimists, came together to make stars.

In the two hours, we made 40 stars.

A view ladies took ribbon home to fold some more.

At that stage, we had 110 stars folded.

Up to date, we are at 200 and there are still in the making.

Mirror: The daily Post Photo Challenge


Jen Hooks at WordPress invites us all to-

show us a mirror. You can take this photo challenge literally, and find reflections in mirrors, or in the stillness of a natural body of water. Live in an urban area? Some skyscrapers are beautifully reflective of the cityscape around them. Or, use this challenge to take a photo of yourself in the mirror. Self-documentation is important, especially for those of us who are usually behind the lens. Enjoy!

Nancy Thanki says:

We frame what we see through our lens. And it tends to be a process, whether you use the golden ratio, the rule of thirds, or just aim for the right balance.
