What would I do without photos? Photos are gateways to the past- they can trigger long-gone memories in an instant. Photos make me nostalgic, but they also can remind me that things are changing for the better. On Thursday I decorated my room with photos I had been meaning to put up for quite some time (yet another way I procrastinate when I have to pack). All of the pictures I put up have been shared on facebook or this blog, but the collage of all of them together looks pretty neat. Alas, I don't have a picture of the finished product (ironic, no?) but it makes my formerly-bare wall much more interesting.
Yesterday I arrived in a city where there's fall, and I was sooo happy to look out the window as we landed and see colorful trees. And today, I was happy to run into a few friendly strangers who offered to take my picture in the park among all the red trees.
