One Community is a monthly photo project in which participants photograph their homes and communities with a theme in mind. The theme varies by month. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art.

This is the link code, if you care to join us. All are welcome.

Each month, one of the hosts picks four words for us to interpret through photographs of what we see around us in our daily lives.

The Rules:  Post one or more photos interpreting the words for the month, and add your blog post to the link-up.  Please include a link back to the link-up post on your One Community post, and take a look at some of the other links and comment on them.

This month’s words, selected by Sheila are: treasure, silver, resolution and winter.

Treasure: Time with friends and family from far and wide who I had a chance to see during the last few weeks. Love these folks and wish I could keep all of them happily in the same neighborhood forever.

One community: January

Silver: A Christmas star and two people who I love most. I hope to return to Colorado sooner than later to be near my brother and his girlfriend, Jess.

Resolution: This year, I will read more. Never mind the new Downtown Abbey season starts tonight — I want to spend more time with books and writing. These are a few books I received for Christmas.

Winter: Oh, Golden. Clear Creek had some ice dam issue and was frozen beyond belief in December. Imagine an entire street of Golden with cars frozen to the street. This has been a winter to remember, for my friends in Colorado.

I don’t miss slipping and sliding and driving in snow. I do miss those snow days when you curled up with a heavy blanket and a crackling fireplace. Winter in Phoenix means you can go outside without a water bottle.
