Stop and smell/photograph the roses

Yesterday I went to the Phoenix Flea in Downtown Phoenix with Shannon.  As we were walking by a rose garden, I couldn’t help but jump in and take some photos of these colorful flowers.  Shannon was laughing at me as I jumped to each new flower because I was so excited – each one was more beautiful than the last.  Maybe I was so enamored with them because I missed seeing such so flowers like this.  Maybe it was because so many times I’ve taken photos of nature and the photos don’t do them justice.  That’s not the case with roses.  Whether it’s a bright and sunshiny day, a gloomy cloudy day or a dewy morning – I’ve always found roses are just as gorgeous in photos as they are in person.  The fact that rose is a variation of my mother’s name definitely contributes to the beauty.  After I concluded taking photos, we were walking and a man stopped me to say that he was so glad to see that I appreciated the beauty of these flowers as much as he did.  He enjoyed watching me become so excited by the flowers and photographing them as well.  I told him I think it’s just as important to stop and photograph the roses as it is to smell the roses.

People, things, and happenings

Hello!  Welcome to my blog, Interceptionary!

Throughout this blog I’ll be sharing stories about the wonderful people I meet, amazing and useful things that I come across, and funny and/or interesting things that happen to me.  Sometimes things happen and they’re so great, funny, or horrible that I want the whole world to know about it!

Have you ever seen this meme:

That’s me. I’m a 35 year old, single female, living in New York City and I encounter A LOT of things to talk about – and I think other people should hear about them because a lot of times they’re really funny…  Well, guess what – now I have my interceptionary to share these experiences with!

WTF is an Interceptionary?

Just like a dictionary is a book of words…  An Interceptionary is a blog of intercepted thoughts.  This blog is intercepting my thoughts!  Let that sink in for a little…

#Goals

Over the years, I’ve started a bunch of blogs: a yoga blog, a photography blog, a blabber blog and a classroom blog.  For some reason, I guess life got busy or I lost interest and I didn’t continue blogging.  However, as I go back through my old posts, I love reading about what I was doing at that time in my life.  Since my life won’t always be this free, I’m not getting any younger and my memory isn’t getting any clearer, this year, I made it a goal of mine to start a blog and continue it – this way, I will always be able to go back and see what I was experiencing on random days of my life in 2016 (and hopefully thereafter!).
