Picture Color Day 22: Calm Color
White adirondack chairs on a green lawn and yellow sun streaming through the window symbolize summer calm to me.
Tracey asked us to focus in a way that would avoid the clutter around us and show us the calm in the view. My in-laws' home is never cluttered (unlike mine!), but right under this window are the dog food bowls, and when they have lots of guests, our shoes and bags creep over to this area and kids and dogs are always running through, so this does indeed look a lot calmer than it actually is.
Honestly I was tempted to call this photo "Other People's Lives," but that wouldn't have fit the prompt, would it? Right now I'm having a difficult time being the person who sits in a spot like that. I find I'm often looking out from inside.
Because of that, I've decided to cut down my Flickr time in July (not cutting it out altogether -- what a terrifying thought!) to give myself more time both to get things done and to experience life. Spending less time on Flickr isn't the only thing that will help, but I think it will be a good thing.
