Sometimes that's all we need,
a little reminder to make us pause
take another look
reconsider a season.
Quite some time ago, I hung this bookmark from the wall lamp above where I read & stitch, tied in that particular spot so I would not forget its important message. It has never even seen the inside of a book. When the window is open it flutters nonstop in the breezes but now that it's winter and the windows stay latched, it's catching shadows from the late light instead. I snapped it fast, didn't see the 'Rule of Thirds' or even the shadow it cast of itself. Just the lacework wallpaper and how calm it all looked illuminated by that light.
And then I did what I have done a hundred times before.
