My friend and I have decided to read about the brave girl who stood by her faith. If only all of us were that strong and faithful; it’d be a better world.

On a lighter note, I have done it; I captured love in a photograph. I not only captured love, but I captured passion. Here is the proof:

Walmart’s Mistake – Post Thirteen

Well, I’m never going to Walmart again for sending in a roll of film . . . they aren’t even that cheap. They messed up my photos; some of the ones printed weren’t on the disc, and some on the disc weren’t printed, plus I’m missing 2 photos. They’re lucky they weren’t majorly important.

But this, my friend, is Walmart’s only acceptable mistake:

They may have completely annihilated my order, but they sent me back a little present that I didn’t quite expect. I actually like this photo. It’s a combination of two of the photos on my roll of film, and I must admit that it’s very artistic.

Oh dear, do I love black and white film.

Reading every book written about Jacqueline Kennedy

There is something about that woman that is enchanting. I don’t know what it is, but it makes me want to learn everything I can about her character.

That’s my add for the day. Corny, I know, but it would be neat. I loved the stories (not necessarily the grammar, though – could she not have found a better editor?) so it would be neat to see the towns that they were based in.

La Porte de Iridescence – Post Ten

So, I had a bit of a vision. A beautiful auburn freckled lass, dressed in a flimsy, fluttering spring dress. Her hair is long, with loose curls, and her eyes are a vibrant gray. Her name is Adalyn Raine.
Her petite hands are interlaced together, resting lightly on a dark green-colored novel with gold lettering.

“The train is running full speed. The countryside is flying past her window, her mind processing thousands of images of the meshed yellows, browns and reds. She tries to identify the distinction between each color, but finds it difficult.

The sun gently kisses her skin as the dust of the air dances to the rhythm of daylight. She closes her eyes, drinking in the warmth of the rays. The flutter of her sleeves match that of her heart, beating against her body in synchronous rhythm.

She listens to the bustle of the passengers. The crowd seems anxious for what is ahead of them. She watches young children climbing on to their mother’s laps, slowly falling asleep to the rhythm of the train. As it slows, the children feel the vibrations on their bodies cease and wake up meekly, rubbing their eyes and yawning while looking out the window to see their destination.”

I’m still developing it a bit, and I’m not getting my hopes up.
How do you like it?
