i so wish i had something to tell you. but my mind is all wrapped up in the day-to-dayness of our lives this week. re-entry into school and work, and looking ahead to things as far off and abstract as summer, leaves me a bit reticent.
but i've been taking pictures, yes i have.
the top one is film, from a walk i took the day after christmas (film does make you wait for it).
the bottom one is from yesterday, outside of the gallery. i waited for those birds to fly off the roof of the music hall, and fly, they did.
is there anything more captivating than watching a flock of birds fly? how do they know where to go, how to fly together in unison like that? what makes them land? and what makes them take off again?
i truly wonder at this.
and i truly love the winter landscape. the greys and browns and (surprisingly) the blues. you really see the blue sky when the distraction of leaves is gone.
these thoughts take up a lot of room in a head full of schedules and menu plans and worry. i am grateful for such a beautiful distraction.
best wishes. thanks for reading.
