52 week challenge: CHAIRS

I am behind.  I went to Hawaii (shame on me!) and have yet to catch up on the weeks I missed for the 52 week challenge.  Each week goes by, and I am ever so aware that





The A+ nerdy student in me does not like this.

So, I’m gonna have to cheat a little bit.  For me, the 52 week challenge is about getting out there and shooting each week.  Stretching your mind and trying to be creative.  But, I also have to recognize that I am a bit of a geek, and just skipping the weeks I’ve missed when I was in paradise just isn’t.gonna.cut.it. And I’m too busy to catch up.

So, I’m cheating.  Nerds don’t usually do that, but I’m a bit of a rebel nerd.

I’m too behind.  I have to catch up.  So, here’s my entry for CHAIRS.  It was taken back in May before the challenge started.

I love this chair.  This was my chair.  I probably sat in this chair when my daughter was this age.  This chair was my sister’s desk chair.  And then it was my desk chair.  And until recently, this chair was sitting in my dad’s house with a pile of books on it.  Heeeey, that was the last week’s theme.

I digress.

So, I love this chair.  And I just so happen to love the kid that is sitting in this chair.

A lot of learning happened in this chair, and that kid that is sitting in it now has taught me a lot of things.  She has taught me that love comes from deep within.  She has taught me that unconditional love is real and true.  She has taught me just what it feels like to have my heart outside my body.

That kid in that chair has made me a better person.  I love that kid in that chair.

    Really cute Laura, she is looking like a flower child of the 60’s in SF. She is so growing up before our eyes.
