a sunny autumn day brings healing to my soul.
this was the view from my living room window yesterday. perhaps it is because i was born in october, but my heart and soul come alive in autumn in a way that doesn't happen any other time of year. i feel the warmth of god's love in the golden autumn glow, and i am filled with wonder and awe at the beauty of his creations.
we have had precious few sunny days this fall, and today is rainy again. but the sunny days that have come have been perfectly spectacular. the mississippi has been a deep clear blue, and so have the skies. everytime i look out a window, i see leaves swirling by.
my budding photographer tashi has been taking spectacular photos of the autumn scenery. this is a still life she set up for a digital photography assignment:
on a lower note, i have finally sifted through all of our recovered photos and discovered that although we recovered almost as many photos as we lost (over 14,000), they were mostly corrupted copies of just a few photos. and strangely, we recovered the photos from every friends' blog post that we have ever looked at. interesting to see how a computer's memory works. i am saddened to have lost so many. but many are backed up. and it was very interesting to take an abbreviated trip through the last 5 years. it caused me to think about my priorities: what i save and don't save, what i take photos of and what i don't, and most importantly, what i WANT to save and photograph and what i don't from here on out. mostly i am grateful that every experience in life presents me with learning opportunities.
