. . . officially forgot how to write an essay. . .

I have to write two essay for art history & I really just don't know where to begin. Also, I have more photo discs to mail people today & the software I used last time is mysteriously missing today. . .

Inspiration of the day: Gideon Rubin

I have always had such a hard time with faces and I like that he does away with the need for them all together! Love how Rubin conveys certain emotions through the shape of the body rather than relying on facial expression.
This article in the times this morning notes that his inspirations come from vintage photo albums and storybook illustrations.

Back to India. . .

Through the window shots from our visit to Charminar on the 2nd of July.
More to come later!

Dear Jennie Reeb,

You, my friend are a wonderful girl.
I'm so glad you are in my life!

Julie & Julia

In order to escape our house that smells and sounds like boy (Fifteen teenagers to be precise), Mom & I snuck out & went to see this little delight.

Climbing the clock tower

Feel honored to have done this {Esp. considering how few girls have ever done this} ! Thanks guys for including me in this amazing experience. . .
Nothing quite beats a spontaneous adverture late at night.

Last night

I doubt that I will ever look at the DCPC tower again in the same way after last night. . .
More to come later.
Going to say goodbye to P in a minute.

Shopping in India

Even though it could get crazy, I enjoyed our time spent shopping/ wandering in the bazaar. I loved seeing all the fabrics, all the jewelry, & all people.

Ms. Beth in Pipe Village

I like this lady a whole lot & she has inspired me to do so much with my life!

I know some incredible people

Neha & the glasses series

This girl makes me laugh.

Beautiful in every way

There's a first time for everything

I need practice.

A little thing we like to call. . .

"Give dat beef"! After about an hour of Scrabble, we got bored and made our own words & phrases. " Give dat beef," is a favorite. : )

Late afternoon picnic in the park

P leaves tomorrow for Ireland, so we decided to spend our time outdoors today. We grabbed a blanket & a camera, went to the Teeter {headed straight for the salad bar}, jumped back in the car, & drove to one of my favorite places close to home { Fisher Farm Park}.
{Made me miss S & all the fun times together here}
Encouraged by the sign reading "Park with your own discretion", we parked in the middle of the lot, & walked through the tall grass to find a place to set up camp. We ate our salads & fruit, talked, & played a long game of Scrabble. After I lost by a couple hundred points, we went for a walk. By the time we got back to the car, people had arrived, & lawnmower-man told us to park straight next time! On the ride home, we stopped the car to watch construction workers play in a great big muddy pit {soon to be sm. lake or pond maybe?}, played in the muddy pit ourselves, & then P gave me an intro to driving stick-shift {eeekk}!
After talking about our goals, my newest goals include:
- Take more pictures {Thinking, pic. a day in 2010!}
- Play my tambourine weekly : )
- Learn to drive stick-shift independently by P's return home in December.
That's all for now-
As always, I have a long list of things that I need to accomplish before sunrise tomorrow morning!

Summer's End

Found these ridiculous fuchsia berries on our walk around Fisher Farm today.
