I had a few different ideas of what I wanted to use for this challenge, but once again, time got away from me and I just didn't get around to photographing any of the stuff I meant to. So once again I sort of cheated and dug into my files for something I knew would fit perfectly.
When I think of the word FREE, I think of so many things. Birds flying, music blasting in a car radio as you drive down the road with the windows open, dancing with wild abandon in your living room, in general...life.
And then I realize that all these things, the appreciation of these things, are blessings I'm able to enjoy because of where I live. Not everyone has these same freedoms.
As an immigrant, who's family moved us to the United States for a better life, for a chance at at brighter future, and as a naturalized citizen, proud to be an American, even during these tough times of struggle and conflict...when I think of the word FREE, I always see the American Flag, waving in the wind...
Okay, not exactly a flag blowing in the wind there...this was a cake my mom made for the Fourth of July last year...
But still, the message remains.
Make sure to stop by Michelle's to see what else is FREE.
