These are a few favorites out of many fun photos in the flickr bench monday pool. What the heck is bench Monday? A quirky sideline distraction? A way to view things differently through one's lens?

For me, it's been a way of showing up the past few weeks. You've probably heard that Woody Allen quote "80% of success is showing up," and while I'm sure there is a bit of truth to the line, I still feel that I'm slighting myself by sharing less here at the blog of late. Many reasons, but I do feel that it is a just a phase and that I have more to give here in the coming weeks ahead.
