Walking Contradiction

I am such a walking contradiction.  I have always wondered what it would be like to live in the city, to get to walk to the places you need to go; to be surrounded by the hustle and bustle of people rushing to get where they need to go; to always have something to see, something to experience.  But then, when it comes down to it, I can’t stand large crowds, if there are too many people around my energy is immediately drained and it leaves me in a panic looking for the nearest exit.  But when you put a camera in my hand, the first place I want to run is to the city (ok…mostly small towns) but I love the city, something about the details, the small things, the rust, the….life…in the city, I can’t get there quick enough.  Walking contradiction.  But, just because I’m stuck in the suburbs were there’s Target close by doesn’t mean I can’t capture the city and hang it on my wall.  grin

Rumor has it

A little birdie told me that today is the first day of Spring!  Spring! That means flowers, leaves, playing outside and color! The world will be filled with color again! This morning I thought of all of the botanical gardens I want to go to as soon as the flowers start  blooming.  It’s not that I don’t appreciate Winter and all it has to offer, but I miss the color, being outside, having the windows open and the fresh air.
