Weekly Photo Challenge: RENEWAL

Renewal. Okay, what’s that all about? New Year’s Eve — the equinoxes  — new moons — the first snowfall of winter, the first green bud of spring?  There are plenty of signs and portents of renewal in nature. Many, maybe most of them, require waiting, require patience. Here’s daily renewal, though, available right at hand:

Whether it shocks into a new morning, or refreshes after the strain of a long day’s work, a jump into the shower and a quick shampoo provides fast and easy renewal! Or do you rely on something else to renew you?

    I like that you mentioned to consider patience in there. If you don’t mind me saying I am 37 years old and having my own shower still feels like a novalty to me. It took a while for me (I guess that I am a late bloomer) to build up the economic stamina to where I was convinced that I would fluidly always have my own bathroom.

    Cool picture – and I enjoy the questions you raise (as always). While I could not think past the life cycle of plants after first reading this week’s challenge, the answer to your question is:

    I lose myself into a book, take a jump into a different story.
    Sometimes music can do the job too, and faster.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Judith.

  5. I couldn’t agree more. With the luxury of a flexible work schedule, I think I sometimes plan my showers for times when they will be most appreciated. I don’t think I fully understood the rejuvenating effects of a truly good shower until not that long ago. Nice take on the theme 🙂

    If the world as we know it fell apart, a hot shower is what I’d miss most. When we homesteaded I didn’t mind not having power or indoor plumbing but I traded work for a hot shower every chance I got!

    A shower is a *perfect* way to feel renewed! Great interpretation. 🙂
