[work] days

even though iv'e been out of school for eight years, the school calendar is still ingrained in me.  late august always gives me the sense i should be starting something. the collage of "back to school" photos on my facebook feed only strengthens this feeling.  shorter days reminding me summer activities are coming to an end elude to the start of something new.  what? i don't know, but isn't that point of a new school year? you have no idea what to expect.  to capture this feeling, last week i took my own version of "the first days of school" pic and if my rusty math skills are correct, i'm entering the 28th grade.  so outside my classroom, my office, i posed in business casual attire along with the only school supply i seem to need these days, a hot cup of coffee.

seer[sucker] for the east coast

last weekend found me vacationing on the east coast.  every picture i took reminded me of home. a field of blue sea reminded me of amber waves of grain; a silhouette of a lighthouse along the shore, a silo standing solitary against a mid western sky. tug boats and ferry's hard a work mimicked tractors and combines doing the same. seagulls were meadowlarks and wooden beach fences, limestone posts. even the seersucker jacket i wore reminded me of the pillow ticking on the back of an old quilt.
