Round Here

It is fixing to be a dark week in the Olympia area this week. With Spring, brings rain. More than usual, too.  We tend to be pretty introverted during the rainy days, so this evening was no different. Here are a few of my favorite things around the house tonight, the lighting just seemed to fit the mood. Coincidentally, they are things representing old and new life.

The camera collection is new to me; a friend who lost her husband last year was a photographer and wished his collection would be passed to another photographer. She was kind enough to allow them to live with me. They will be put to good use in the coming months when I do a project mixing digital and film. Our Lady Guadalupe also belonged to a dear friend lost.  She rode with him, then with me, and now keeps her serene face towards life in our home. Not being a highly religious gal, I certainly recognize her importance to others, but to me she is simply a reminder of his spirit. The rose and eucalyptus are from a bouquet I made last week, although it is wilting this week, it brought good vibes into our house. New life with many thanks to past life lived.
