I had a splendid day!
I didn't pick up my camera much but I spent my day with family, laughing, snacking and playing card games :) It was a delight, pure bliss. I love these days, when memories are being made all around you and the whole family is just beaming with love and joy.
Thom and my Aunt Donna were up, they came for the funeral and are leaving at 6 am Tuesday... so I told mom I was going to come over to visit Monday, and I did, from 11:30 till 7:30 we just enjoyed eachothers company. It sounds silly, but I will be on this high for days :)
Anyway, while I was busy playing cards, Rooster was given permission to take photos, and he got some really good ones, he took the one at the top of the post (which i totally adore ) and this one of Lydia. I get so delighted with the fact that he loves to take pictures too :)
The one thing I did do, flickr and photo related was get my "femininity" shot done for parallel visions :) I wanted to do something different, not lace or makeup, and baby's breath seemed the perfect compromise :)
I also worked on my song/poem today, it really just came to me...
This world is full of changing times
Sifting sands of an ageless tide
It's full of secrets and it's full of lies
the mournful, soft, sweet lullabies
It's full of long, deep blue winters
And orange summer skies
So full of promises...
So full of good-byes
And, I think I finally know where I belong
Dancing between the verses of an early folk song
And clinging to a memory, for which, I cannot grieve --
And for a moment, thinking,
You're standing next to me...
Here's to the perfect start to the LOVE month
