your photo stories to practice resurrection (week 7) + enter a giveaway!

"... we should be taking steps to celebrate Easter in creative new ways: in art, literature, children's games, poetry, music, dance, festivals, bells, special concerts, anything that comes to mind.  this is our greatest festival....This is our greatest day. We should put the flags out.
...if Lent is a time to give things up, Easter ought to be a time to take things up. ...The forty days of the Easter season, until the ascension, ought to be a time to balance out Lent by taking something up, some new task or venture, something wholesome and fruitful and outgoing and self-giving."
Want to join me, to practice resurrection for Eastertide? Take something up and share it with us.  Maybe a six week dance class?  We want you to show us a picture.  Planting spring flowers (maybe a new variety this year)?  Show us!  Taking a new route to work (maybe taking more time than necessary in honor of the mad farmer)?  Share it!

Rannoch Moor is an upland plateau in the the West Highland Way; no one lives within 8 miles in any direction. I walked it early in the morning. I was in awe the entire time.  (Joel Cutting, Scotland via Vestal, NY)

Each week for the rest of May  I'll select one motivational print from PJeanArtMachine to give away to one of YOU photo story contributors.   
Three easy steps to play along our Practice Resurrection photo story series (and get your name entered in a weekly drawing):
1. Take up something new. (one day or fifty days doesn't matter, just one thing that's new or, maybe just unique with this season)
2. Take a picture and write a description in 36 words or less.
3. Share the photo and the 36 word or less caption with me via email or facebook message by Thursday morning each week of the series.
