#1 of Life Simplified


*Gasp* I haven’t posted for a few days!

Hubby and I went away camping in Banff for the long weekend. Much needed R&R/alone time was had.

Although, as is standard with my luck, it rained and snowed. Yes, you did read that right.

Abstracted Thought


I was browsing through my old pictures and came across a photograph I took of a friend.

I liked it, and thought it would make a nice abstract.

So here it is.

“Thought”

I hope he doesn’t mind. 😉

Also, I wanted to post a song with this piece but dang it all I can’t remember the title AND the one person who could tell me isn’t online.

Oh well *shrugs*

Cheers!

Just a note that I’ve found the MP3 to that song I wanted so here’s the link.
