On purpose, I took this photo yesterday:
What are your first associations with the word “Purpose”?
When I take photos, it’s more intuitive than purposeful. But I purposely have faith that each of the photos will serve a purpose in this blog.
One of my co-workers sent me those, on purpose, through the office mail. I think her purpose was to amuse me and to connect with our mutual love of cats and experience of the local weather.
I purposefully took that picture of my co-worker Megan’s white board. Megan wrote that with the purpose of helping people improve their self-care.
I took those two photos with the purpose of documenting that THERE WERE NO MATZO BALLS in the hospital’s Matzo Ball soup when Megan and I went to lunch.
I purposely took that photo of a Mongolian Lamb Stool because:
- I’d never seen anything like that before,
- We’re going to the Sheep Festival this Saturday,
- I believed some of my readers might like it, and
- I thought it was funny.
On purpose, I just linked that last line to an old blog post, because that finally answers a question I posed two years ago, which nobody here ever guessed. Sometimes it takes a while to fulfill a purpose.
My purpose in taking that photo was that I believe we’re here to help each other, for free.
My purpose in taking and sharing that photo is that I like to celebrate communities everywhere.
My purpose in taking those photos is to share some things I love seeing these days.
My purpose in taking that last photo of the day was to show that
- things can happen — on purpose or not — to slow us down or even stop us for a while and
- with purpose, we can overcome obstacles, especially with help from others.
I hope this post isn’t falling flat, because that is neither my intent nor my purpose.
On purpose, I now show this photo again
to purposefully introduce some music I was singing yesterday:
I’ve been including music by Prince in this blog lately, on purpose.
While it’s not my purpose to write this blog to elicit comments, I hope you express yourself purposefully in the comment section, below.
Purposeful thank to all who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — no matter what your purpose is for joining me here and now.
