Around campus

Early morning on September 11, 2009




I like how the water is trickling, quietly.


The morning shadows followed me around campus early today. I arrived before students showed up, and I walked to a quiet fountain to reflect on events of 8 years ago. As I fought tears, I saw more beauty surrounding me than I knew existed. It is as if the tears washed away the dust of my eyes.

Suddenly, everything looked fresher but wise none the less.



Even the sky looked hopeful.

What is that beautiful flower? Whatever it is, I'm in love with that and your pups. You take particularly striking pictures of dogs; unlike people though, dogs don't have a bad side.

Hi Brenda. Thanks for the profound and encouraging post.

The flower is on a bush - a mexican bird of paradise. Not at all like (in botanical terms) the tropical bird of paradise, but I think the colors are similar. The MBP grows easily in our desert environment.
