Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 667

Welcome to weekly round-up 667. Don’t forget we are getting close to February which means it will soon be prompt week and it a letter prompt this month but maybe a bit of a tricky one?

This week I am delighted to welcome the talented and lovely Annie Savoy to the round-up. You can find her on her own blog Annie Savoy and on Twitter @asavoywrites

Annie’s Top 3 Pics of the Week

I’m sure it’s a combination of my own life and the weather, but I responded strongly to a sense of melancholy in several of the picture submissions this week.

Molly’s’ Daily Kiss

Perhaps not as melancholy on the face of it, but I know that Molly really adores sunshine and the summer heat so I read into her post a wistful longing for a break in the winter weather. I love her interpretation of the flowers as “tiny white droplets of life,” a great reminder that in tough times, the most important expressions of our human existence – kindness, love, generosity – are not gone, they’re merely hibernating

Happy Come Lucky

I’m not sure what confidence destroying event(s) Honey is referencing here but I feel for her. Even as bloggers who don’t show our faces, these pictures represent who we are on a primal level and I admire everyone who puts themselves out in this public space to be seen and appreciated. I will also say that the stark bleached out quality of this picture gives me a sense of defiance that I find hopeful. She might be down but she’s not out.

Focused and Filthy

It certainly is OK to not be OK. As someone who frequently uses art to process through difficulty, I love that Missy persevered in posting something for us and portrayed her interior state so beautifully and vulnerably. The violet light is especially evocative.  

So many of us are struggling this month/winter/season and I wish for light to break through our collective darkness. May hope visit us all in ways large and small this week.
