Welcome to "In the Moment"

This challenge works one of two ways:
1) Submit an original poem, photo, or artwork (any medium) that relates to the challenge word of the month. 
2) Take a look at what has been submitted and draw inspiration from it and create a NEW piece of artwork based on a previous artists entry.

Confused?  See if this helps explain the concept:

The challenge word might be "rural".  "Jane" might write an original poem based on the family farm she grew up on.  "Jack" may submit a photo of a tractor in a hayfield. "Jill" might download the photo & use it for a reference in order to create a watercolor painting of it.

For detailed Rules & Regulations, please see right side bar.

If there is any confusion and you are interested in participating, please leave me a message in the comment section.   I realize this may be a bit confusing.  All questions and suggestions are quite welcome. 

Begins Monday September 27, 11am (EST)- 
& Ends Sunday, October 31, 11pm (EST)
A new challenge will start the beginning of each month.

 October Challenge Word 
is Labor

"A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought.  There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor". - Victor Hugo

Think " Van Gogh" & his paintings of peasants working in the fields.

Think seasonal - there is evidence all around this time of year.
