Hello Readers – City Sonnet’s color of the day is Wild Rose (here) and Tourmaline’s color this week is Almond (here).
I had these photos sitting in a Two for Tuesday folder – thought it might make a nice post – and I have some Emily Dickinson Poems two – I mean too – 🙂
The first boot photo – with almond color in the counter top – I stumbled upon at Ann’s house (she and her hubs moved to the country and we went to see them one night a few years ago. All night that little lone boot sat on the counter top – I guess it was her granddaughter’s doll’s boot. I grabbed a photo on the way out. Reminded me of an item of my stepdaughter’s that I had on display Back in the 1990’s. I used to have her Polly Pocket locket bracelet in a little bird-bath dish. It stayed right there in the living room (for about s year) and once in a while someone would ask if I knew it was there. It would wait for her until her next visit.
The second boot was sitting on a table at the pool. I thought, “Wow, another single boot waiting for me to photograph.”
Both bikes were parked in the same yard, which I saw on that ‘doorscursion’ walk in Charlottesville, VA (last month here)
I do not have much commentary on today’s Dickinson poems. Both have to do with life and the passing of time. The first one mentions that second sunset – the one that comes when we stay up late. The second poem reminds me of the freshness and the joy that can sometimes come with a new day (smooth the hair, prepare the smile and leave the fears of last night behind – renew the mind with right thinking and start that fresh day) — — What do you think the poems offer for takeaways?
Today’s post was inspired by these “Two for Tuesday” posts, which came my way this morning:
Timeless Lady HERE (Baking soda tip for cleaning vases)
John Holton HERE (Smooth Jazz music from Chuck Loeb)
Do you have anything feeling like double in your life – I mean – it is #twosday after all….
