Bigger Picture Moments & Projects for March!

Before we get into this week’s Bigger Picture Moments, we’d like to announce a couple BRAND NEW projects for the month of March!

The first project we’ll be bringing to you is “SCENES FROM MY WEEKEND” – we’re asking you to share with us some glimpses of what your weekends are like! scenes from a weekend_cropped

Starting next Monday, March 4, we’ll have a linkup right here on Bigger Picture Blogs, for you to link up some of your sights and moments – anything and everything, from the quotidienne to the extraordinary – of the weekend. We’ll have the linky up every Monday for the month of March, so please do join in!

The second announcement is: for the month of March, we’re going to have a special focus, with the theme of REJUVENATE! As we have celebrated LOVE for the month of February, March will be dedicated to rejuvenation – much needed, as so many of us have been battling a difficult winter, with the flu-pocalypse of 2013, pregnancy ups & downs, and other bodily, mental & spiritual woes. So please join us as we strive to revive…and rejuvenate!

Without further ado, let us now take a moment to end this February with ruminations on the Bigger Picture in simple moments of love. To set the mood, ponder this highlight from last week:

In Lisa’s words:
“Because real love burns beneath the surface of the sparks that fly in the early years when falling in love is easy, and it doesn’t waver even when it discovers that staying in love is hard….More than anything, real love knows that the moment when you’re wondering if you’re falling out of a perfect love is really just the moment when you begin falling into the only kind that really is.”

For the month of February, Bigger Picture Blogs is celebrating LOVE! Share a loved or loving moment with us – it can be anything: a poem, a memory, an ode or yearning, so long as it comes from the heart!

Bigger Picture Moments
Live. Love. Capture. Encourage.

Musical Inspiration the Encore

The notes have been played and the inspiration has been found in this month’s Musically inspired posts by our writers.

Hyacynth – “And we find the layers of our soundtrack –the harmony, the melody, the chords — are just clothing to the lyrics we’ve been trying to undress from our first night drive.”

Alita – “We are emotionally attached to these songs that make the soundtrack our lives.”

Jade – “I couldn’t even tell you in words what this song speaks to me, I can only dance it. It makes me want to cry. And it makes me want to dance.”

Melissa – “Someday I will get it out…the way it plays out in my head….but for now I listen and I imagine it and I wait for the words and characters to find their way out of the song and into my hands.”

Brook – “I love this idea of a theme song, something by which to define us and drive us.”

Our community {including YOU!} submitted songs for our Musical Inspiration playlist, which can be found HERE.

And as we give our final encore of our musical inspiration I’d like to leave you with a little video, of what HOME means to us. Inspired by our musical prompt Phillip Phillips song HOME.

Thanks for joining us on our musical journey, and look for more inspiration coming in March.

Bigger Picture Captures

photo(65)

Often just like writing, inspiration for a photo comes immediate and you simply must capture the moment. Other times picture taking is less inspired.

In the spirit of creativity that is being nourished here on this site and in your hearts, we’re bringing back Bigger Picture Captures.

Each Wednesday a thought, a word, or a moment will be shared and you will have the opportunity to capture the creativity with your lens and share it.

No need to worry about blogging it (unless you want to of course) or linking it up. All you have to do is Tweet it, facebook it, or Instagram it.

We know that a lot of you are participating in the P365 or P52 challenges. This is a little more creative inspiration to get your camera out and take a picture of something different.

Use #BPCaptures anywhere you are collecting your pictures, and get ready to CREATE!

Today’s prompt is WEIGHT.

Do you feel weighted? Do you like to lift weights? DO you have a weight lifted off of your shoulders? Or do you see something in your world that is weighted… We can’t wait to see YOUR INTERPRETATION.
