Life drifts away, too, slowly but surely.

Your image makes me think of life, and the sometimes, nowadays seldom seen, lightness of it.

All:... for reference, I've posted an alternate version. Have a look ...

Thank you, Connie. :)

That's very sweet of you to say, Susu ... every day is a big day for me and I attempt to squeeze every bit of life out of each one, the good along with the bad and even the seemingly unbearable; as you say, the days do drift away, slowly, surely. :|

Kathleen Rietz:
Hey! Rietz! Your economy of words is something I attempt to emulate ... but, as you probably don't know, I talk too much! :)

... and he blushes ... :)

Oh, I would love to catch a ride on an air flow like that...just to drift and wander and watch.

Thanks so much, Shani ... and it's wonderful to see a new piece over at your place as well. :)

I really like the subtle dance you created here - you do capture the breeze and the light and the flight...perfect.

I'm sitting here, busily imagining spring and summer ... not just for myself, but especially for Susu. For some reason, perhaps those you mention (thank you so much), the seasons of renewal seem closer than ever. :)
