One breath short of life, she greets the world with open arms.  Ebullient posture and poised to seize the day, this creature delights in the ordinary, I just know it!



This statue captivated me during my photo hunt at the Chattanooga Choo Choo gardens last week–time is the only thing preventing me from posting half a dozen more pictures (I might return to add a few).

Does she inspire you?  Are you moved to write a poem?  Can you hear the stories she has to tell?  Is this how you welcome the morning? 

For this week’s "Forty-or-less- Photo Challenge", write a brief post based on your response to this photo; come back on Friday and link your submission, and then visit others to see their take on the same thing.  Remember, you can copy the photo to your post, pick up the "Friday’s 40-or-less Photo Challenge" button and invite your friends to share their response.

Don’t have a blog?  No worries–if you’re inspired to respond, just do so in comments (on this post or Friday’s) and I’ll post it with mine :).
