and did I mention that

I LOVE TO GET MAIL???????? This lovely little postcard from Gerrie arrived in the mail
today! The colors are so vibrant and sooooo very Gerrie! Thanks Dear Heart: you truly brightened my day!

Speaking of brightening days, the photography class that I'm taking met on our local town Square this morning for a photo shoot.

What fun!!! Our professor gave us a long list of the types of photos she wanted us to shoot, and then we were on our own. It was a lovely October morning, and I just had a
ball. At one point, my good buddy Dr Sock and I got together for a few pics, as evidenced by the one at left.

We spotted these darling little mushrooms marching through a hellebore planter at the library.

My friends John and Troy have a wonderful flower shop on the Square. I love their outdoor displays......don't you?

Hope your day was sunny and bright!

A photography field trip sounds like an ideal way to spend a fall day. Great photos too.

Oh Art MAil is the absolute best!! SInce I ahve stopped doing swaps, the mail has stopped as well! HMM, maybe I should do more swaps again!! Good for you taking a class!! Days dedicated to exploring and picture taking are such fun and we stop and slow down and look and FIND soooo very much!!!
Glad to see that you are having such fun!!

Finally thought of my fav Leonard Chen quote- wouldn't come to me the ther day and I could not find my quote book- Here it is: Sing the song you cannot sing, ring the bell that cannot ring. There's a crack in everything. That's how the light get's in!!!!
