I don't know if animals actually smile when they're happy, or cry when they're sad. But their wonderful expressions reach out across the human/animal divide and connect us in profound ways. These sheep couldn't have looked happier curled up together in the sunshine, and seemed genuinely pleased to have their picture taken. Each time I look back at this image, I get a big goofy grin on my face.
I'm feeling both happy and sad this week as I take my leave from Mortal Muses. From the very start, I've SO enjoyed being part of this amazing group of photographers. My fellow muses are talented, funny, caring, and generous. Connecting with the followers of this blog and seeing the diverse and beautiful images that have been shared in the flickr group has been a treat. Thank you for making the last 6 months a hugely rewarding experience. I'm taking my leave in order to have more time to pursue other projects. But I'll be following along as the Muses offer up great prompts and challenges in 2011. You can keep up with me as I tackle my 53 project over on my blog a little light reading.
I know you'll join me in welcoming the newest muse, Ashley Sisk of Ramblings and Photos. She'll be taking over this spot, and I hear she'll also have some great wisdom to share over in Muse University.
OK --let's go out with a wry sort of smile, courtesy of Angie*Allen.
I've loved every minute of this adventure. Thank you all so much.
Much love. -- lucy
