Florally photographic diversion
Because it's been such a fun-filled week of sleeplessness and illness, I thought I'd post something pretty and sweet to boost the collective mood around here.
As I wallowed alone at home this week, I found myself looking for comfort in everything around me. It's almost like a nesting instinct in that I seek out whatever touchstone brings warmth.
As part of this process, I meandered through some old photos. I've always enjoyed looking at images captured long ago. It's like a time machine, only less expensive.
This particular picture has always made me happy. I like the color, the composition and the mood. It's almost impossible not to feel better after seeing it.
Your turn: What images make you feel better when the world turns cold? Should I post some more so-called "comfort pictures" in the days ahead?
