Spotlight : Surrounded

This week we had a fair representation of what we are surrounded with in our towns. Cityscapes, country spaces, sky, sea, sand and love.  We didn’t miss a thing but I had a small dilemma. 

When we started out we said, ‘no rules’, and have pretty much stuck to that philosophy.  Maybe this has happened before and I just didn’t snap to it.  This week of our 13 posts 4 were from Cheryl Ann out in Southern California.  There is no rule that this can’t happen but ‘fair’?

From Kara; a spontaneous dip in the sea.  For me this was not surrounded by water but by joy in the moment.   Her poem was one of my favorite reads of this week.
