This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral For this week’s photo challenge, show us what ephemeral means to you. It could be a dry leaf floating on an errant breeze, the sleep-floppy smile of your waking three-year-old, or the cake that turned out just right before the hungry hordes descend on it. So looking forward to see the fleeing moments you’ll capture!
Positive Motivation Tip: All of life is ephemeral. Our works, words, and acts of compassion live on long after we are gone. Give! Enjoy!
