Oh, circles—let me count the ways…

I am organizing my photos and I began playing a game in my head.  Find the (blank) and see how many times it shows up in my photos. Today it was CIRCLE. Without having to look very hard circles began appearing everywhere.  It’s such a pleasing shape.  I love a circular table.  Coins. Cookies. Pizza. Rings. Plates. Hoola Hoops. There is beauty everywhere when we pay attention.  Finding little ways to amuse ourselves is, I believe a good skill to practice.

I am also a very big fan of the square, but I will save that for another day.

A Rainy Day College Road Trip

rainy road trip_2

Today I am off to Philadelphia on a college tour with my son who wants to be an industrial designer. We are visiting the Drexel and Philadelphia Universities. I am very curious about both schools and I have never been to Philadelphia. We’ve enlisted the support of a dear friend, Jen Wool to act as our mediator on the trip. Moms and 17-year-old sons shouldn’t really spend 7+ hours in the car and 3 days alone. It just isn’t healthy. I do think there is a pretty good chance that at about 2pm today we hit a Popeye’s chicken in New Windsor, New York. YEAH! Have a good weekend.
