Observation is Like a Family Treasure

For all of April, I’m going wordless for the A to Z Challenge.

The title of each post is a phrase/ sentence that inspires me as a
writer, and below is a picture I think best embodies it. In the
comments, I invite you to discuss what the phrase means to you, as a person, a
reader, or whatever other role you might choose for yourself in life.

    Beautiful picture – it looks Divine. I love observing people – most fascinating subject to explore and one learns so much too.

    just so amazed watching and then observing the white spread of petals and the golden…sense of concentration and peace and tranquility..which leads to observation and reminds of few emotions kept on the study-table of subconscious mind of people and places closely observed to be cherished in their absence !!

    Family get togethers really are one of the best places to observe human behavior – there are usually so many different personalities, age groups, and dynamics going on (occasionally unpleasant, often quite funny in my family).

    I remember when I used to sit around the art building and write down everything people around me were saying, with a few observations about how they sounded and looked. I still like to watch people. The picture makes me think of a fancy cake and I would like to take a bite.

    Interesting quote. I think family treasures usually don't cost much but have far greater value than anything else. I think observation is similar. It's pretty easy to do, but what you learn from just watching is invaluable.

    That is my best guess. 🙂

    Interesting A to Z topic. I'm glad I stopped by.

    Wow, what a picture! I do love observation…people watching…and especially at family gatherings. Watching how different family units communicate in different ways and when they're all gathered the clashes are very…interesting. Most of them involve my mother-in-law who must have it perfect, and that means HER way. Sigh.

    In her later years, my Mother would come to visit us with our children. She'd sit back and observe all the chatter among myself and our 4 daughters. (Not that she could get a word in edgewise, anyway,lol)
    That's what I miss most about not having our daughter's here every day. The every day chatter is like a family treasure. Thanks for visiting my blog and your photograph is wonderful! 🙂

    A sumptuous image, Damyanti. Along with your heading, it reminds me of times when a crowd of my family come round. I have five married kids, ten grandchildren, so if two families visit…it's a crowd. They all get on so well together and I love to sit back and just observe how they interact. It truly is a sumptuous treasure.
    Thank you for 'following' my blog, Damyanti. That's how I found yours. Glad I did x
