circle of delights / circle of lights
All these little things delight me - the tiny little acorns with their cute little hats, the subtle color changes in a leaf, the intricate formation in a flower... But what started out as a fun project is slowing causing me to become discouraged. I am so frustrated because I can't find the clear, bright, colorful leaves here (the leaves just have not turned yet), and we have no flowers blooming either - I'm struggling to find the nature that I want for my scannography project and I'm afraid that I won't have the time to get things ready for the ICE festival in just a few weeks. / this week i found out that homecoming in college is not as big of a deal as it is in high school. but my school put on a bunch of free events for students that i finally realized have the potential to be fun. a carnival went up before our eyes on friday afternoon despite the terrible weather and cold and we decided to brave the elements and give it a try later that night. the lights of the rides looked beautiful in the foggy air (wish i'd had my good camera with me - this is a phone pic)) and we rode everything at least once. it was my roommates first time on a ferris wheel and i was happy to share that moment with her.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
