Sing myself awake Watch the branches break

Completely inspired by an image I saw today of leaves floating down a stream of water. Makes me miss living somewhere that actually HAS seasons. Rita, I may be coming your way VERY SOON. Get the guest room ready. 😉

So shake the leaves, off the trees,
Watch them float down the stream
Throw me a dream please, it’s been a dreamless sleep
For such a long time, such a long time
Sing myself awake
Watch the branches break
No one could ever take your place

-Seabear, I sing I swim
Listen to it Here

LOVE that song. Have from the first moment I heard it. And the leaves floating down the stream made the song come so clearly to my head I knew I had to work it into my 365 today.

ALSO — this is yet ANOTHER reason for someone to claim that last spot in the Flash workshop. I took this image at 1pm today in my backyard, full sun, not a could in the sky.

And, lastly, I am SO TIRED of taking pictures of my kids I have resorted to taking pictures of myself. haha.

16-35mm @ 23mm | 1/200 @ f/5.6 | ISO 50 | vivtar 285 off camera, shoot through umbrella, camera left, ambient 1 1/3 stops below flash exposure, 1/2 CTO to make the sky appear bluer
pp: Pioneer Woman’s Lovely and Ethereal on a lowered opacity, quick edge burn

    Hi Wendy,

    Sooo wish I could join you for that last spot. when life slows down and perhaps after I win that prize over on your new site!

    BTW, I had trouble with the link on your new site that should send me over here. Don’t know if it’s just me but thought you’d want to check it out…
