It comes on tiptoe
Sneaking up on us
Like a predator on its victim
While we’re the last to notice it…
Reward and punishment or carrot and stick
We reward and punish ourselves

From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough.
From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary.

Art(including pictures and images)should evoke an emotional response in those who are viewing them. That’s why art can leave such a long-lasting and poignant imprint within the depths of our psyche
Your challenge or writing prompt is this:
- what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn
Remember, the goal isn’t necessarily to tell me and others exactly what the picture is.
The creative goal for all of us is“what does the picture evoke in you;what emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in youand to share it that with others.“
