I love classic cars. We seem to have an abundance of classic car shows in Colorado during the summer, and I haven’t made it to a single one this year! Next year, I’m determined to create a calendar in advance so I can schedule Job #3 around at least a few of them. We found this gem in New Mexico, and MKL was super happy to sit in it. It reminded him of the truck in which his grandfather taught him to drive on the farm in Kansas when he was a small boy. We’re hoping that we’ll be able to find a great classic truck of our very own when we get a little more space around us. Ours is out there somewhere!

I love taking pictures of doorways. I love doorways in general. They have such symbolism in our daily lives — arriving, departing, leaving our pasts behind us, entering into our futures. They suggest mysteries undiscovered and experiences unmet. The wicked imps of depression are nipping at my heels just now; I am trusting that the days to come will offer some relief and solace and help me get back to being myself. This is a doorway that has appeared in my path unexpectedly so many times, leaving me at a loss as to how to move through it every single time. I stand before the door to depression, fighting the imps that are trying to hasten me through, doing my best to kick them aside. I have made promises that keep me from succumbing, from falling through the door, from giving in. I instinctively wait it out until that doorway fades from the path before me, leaving it clear and bright. And now, I am waiting. But it is hard.

I don’t know what kind of flower this is (other than a red one), but I love the fact that the bloom has a backbone.  Indeed, we blossoms are all strong-spined.
