Monday Listicles: 10 Photos, 10 Wishes

This Monday’s listicle comes at the request of Kim, at Zook Book Nook: she’s having a new baby, maybe even right this very minute, and she wanted to create a series of blog posts about “the senses.”  This week’s series is about “sight,” so we were asked to put together our ten favorite photos.

The people who really know how to work this here newfangled internet thing did pinterest and instagram and all that stuff, and others simply posted lovely, wonderful photos, probably culled from their immaculately cataloged digital archives.

Yeah. Well. Yay for them. Me, not so much.

Husband has done an admirable job of cataloging many of our photos but many (most?) are scattered around any number of hard drives, any number of photo file systems.  So some things are right there where they should be but, for instance, most of 2005 is missing.

So I can’t put my hands on my favorite photos, or not all of them anyway, but here are some photos that could be seen as wishes…

1. May your diapers never account for most of your total body weight:

2. May you know the joy (mostly) of an older sibling:

3. May you know the joy of silly hats (and silly walks, also fart jokes):

4. May you have the gift of imagination and the empty time in which to exercise that gift:

5.  May you have the gift of music:

Washington Square Park, NYC, 2010

6. May you have the gift of art:

sand painting, Union Square Park NYC, 2011

7.  May you have adventures:


8. May you have mysteries…

9. …and beauty…

Rub-al-kali, The Empty Quarter

10. …and peace:

Sedgewood, New York State

    Your photography is always a joy to see. I love the ones you chose, the wishes that come with them! Specially the first one, so very important.
    May I suggest printing some of these gems to pop on the walls?
    Thank you Deborah for being the wonderful you, the talented you and the great bloggy friend of mine. And Kim’s!

    I love this wish list format. The weight of the diapers. The gift of imagination. All the fabulous and interesting real places your family has explored. Just…wow.
    PS: Those boys are pretty gosh-dern handsome.

    I know I’ve said this before, but everything your kiddos are getting to experience in life is simply amazing! Those were some awesome pics; and your boys are cutie pies!

    your children: utterly beautiful.

    Know I now what people mean when they tell me, “your kids are so beautiful, how can you stand it.”

    your children are treasures.

    Thank you for this gorgeous and heartfelt post.

    According to the NYT, the artists that brought you 5 & 6 have been issued multiple summons and may be barred from the park soon….
