|Toronto by fieldguided|
Beautiful, but cold. I know it's an image of Toronto and I don't live in Toronto. I don't care. I'm pretty damn close, if you consider an 8 hour drive close.
This is what I'd love my morning to look like.
|Swan Boats by fieldguided|
Ah, reminds me of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. I don't remember there being swan boats but I do remember being chased by a giant white goose near the haunted lake when I was seven. I was wearing a fluffy cream skirt with baby blue ruffles and minding my own business when a gang of ducks led by a large white goose with a bright orange beak swaggered towards me like gangsters.
I was slightly alarmed but also intrigued because I absolutely loved animals back then (still do) and they were getting pretty close. Maybe I could pet them. So I didn't move. The posse of ducks stopped a couple feet before me, then the giant white goose waddled towards me, stared me straight in the eyes (the height of its head almost reached my neck), took a big bite of my skirt, and twisted its head as far sideways as it could. That's when I realized I probably shouldn't pet it, so I ran away. I still want a pet goose someday :)

Anyway, I went off on a tangent. Ah! Happy memories of summer and frolicking on the beach! I sure miss summer. I love these photos by fieldguided. They make me happy. Don't they look like old film reels of nostalgic memories sugar glazed in your head? I've come to realize lately that the past always looks rosier than it actually was. But I guess that just shows that things in the present aren't always as hard or as bad as we think it is.
