Meaning of My Walls

This wall might look a little boring to you, but to me it’s full of love, determination, appreciation and joy.  This is what I see when I look up from my computer.  On the left are two pictures done by my fabulously talented photographer wife, Cee.  The top picture is a water lily and the bottom is a black and white treatment of a lotus flower.  I should ask her to post that on her blog because you can’t appreciate the stellar beauty of that shot from this picture.

myWallIn the middle is my backwards clock, which is the easiest way for me to read analog time.  I have a visual spacial problem that makes understanding simple things like clockwise and counterclockwise a challenge.  On the right are certificates thanking me for my service in the US Army, and for six years of service as a support group facilitator for grieving families.  Under that is a thank you letter from a friend that touched me deeply.  So it’s all there… love, appreciation, joy, service to country and to families in pain, rebuilding after tragedy.  Sometimes the ordinary can signal a lot.

In case you’re looking for a more traditional wall, here’s a mural I found in Oregon City denoting the founding of the city along the banks of the Willamette River.

I thought I’d share with you the wall in my office as a way to participate in WordPress’ weekly photo challenge.  I found I don’t take many pictures of walls, so I thought I’d grab a quick one to share a little of me with you.

Hi.  I’m Chris.  I’m an introvert.  All of my postings tend to reflect my introvert world in some way or another.  Join me and like minded introverts for a special slant on the world.
