Daily Post Photo Challenge Motion

camelEgypt? No, New Jersey. While driving to my son’s dive meet one morning on the hectic and well-traveled Jersey Turnpike,  I nonchalantly glanced to my right and saw this incredible beast being transported in a trailer, its woolly locks blowing in the wind.  The creature and I made eye contact and my heart ached to think it might be heading for a circus or some other place far the opposite of greener pastures.  Snapping this photo through my car window I said a little prayer that the camel was en route to a lovely farm somewhere far from here, where it would recover from its journey in a shaded field.


Poetry in Motion – Waterfall


On the count of three…


Motion in action

I am an ex New Yorker who still misses the vibrancy of the city. I seek out the humor in every day life and relay it through my stories in the hope others will appreciate as well. I love to write about growing up with my fantastically unique Irish mother whose memory inspires me every day. Although she is no longer with us, her antics are an endless staple for my tales. I currently live in Connecticut with my husband, two sons and toy fox terrier Anabel.

    1. Good morning from Connecticut Li! The beast is a camel very uncommon to our area. Great visual description of warriors riding! though I have never seen Star Wars . Have nice day.


      1. And I applaud YOU as swim meets much more lengthy than dive although the dive meets often involve both Sat and Sunday (1 meter board one day, 3 meter second). Both my boys swim in the summer but at our pool’s local meets which are much less chaos and enjoyable than the competitive venues. A great sport!
