Some days seem made for day dreaming. When worries seem far off and the sun is shining and you let yourself just enjoy being wherever you are at the moment. Today I left work and had my lunch in the park. Fairview park to be specific. There is a pond there called Dreamland Pond. I was born here in Decatur and grew up here. I have spent many afternoons in this park over the years and yet I never knew that this pond had a name until recently. Now I find myself gravitating there for lunch on sunny days. Today I actually took some self portrait pictures because I was enjoying the moment so much I wanted to see what I looked like. Did I look as relaxed as I felt ? About a year ago a very good friend was coaching me through some hard times. He suggested I take self portrait pictures to help see myself more clearly. Over the past year I have taken quite a few and the results have been more than revealing. Some of those pictures show a woman going through a major life struggle, I hope I won’t be seeing too many more of those. But todays pictures show a more thoughtful and yes ” dreamy” Laura….which seems appropriate since I spent my lunch hour at Dreamland Pond.
