Reaching and Reaching and…

We reach out; we reach up; we reach back. Such was the topic of this week’s challenge.

Often, in my past, reaching equated with grasping – fear clouding common sense, and even hope. In recent years, I have had to learn the importance of reaching out, having lost so much independence through illness. I am forever reaching up.

Proscenium, who loves to reach…er…stretch for a prompt, does not disappoint.

Pictures without film engages in the conversation with photographs of dancers, a chain, and a tree – all reaching: literal and figurative representations of our theme.

Heart to Heart shares a photo of her beloved dog, “anxious to reach home”. There are some things worth reaching for is my take away.

one letter UP shares a heart warming story about reaching for a higher moral ground – a message that will stay with me for sometime – so good.

Willow Poetry inspires thought with her haiku paired with the image of a kitten and a bauble. When are we ever content?

Reena Saxena puts another, equally evocative spin on the subject.

ELYSIANANDCYNOSURE offers an acrostic interpretation that is well done.

Stuff and what if… unthawed her muse, keeping the magic alive.

Prats Corner writes an encouraging and motivational piece.

Sgeoil touches on the unreachable with her insightful poem.

In the meantime, I am still reaching, this time for ________________ (the answer will come tomorrow.)

Thanks to all for participating and see you tomorrow for a new challenge.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
