Lost Sole

What I Found in the Toys 'R Us Parking Lot

Late afternoon winter light.

When I find these things I know there’s a story behind the scene.  The light seemed perfect, causing the edges to reflect the setting sun.  Anna, 7, said, “I wonder whose shoe is that.”

    Ruth this is spectacular! The things I love about this post on your blog today are endless. Your words… the picture of the city… the new look of your blog… and especially today’s picture. I woke up this morning saying “I lost myself yesterday, good thing today is a new day.” Your picture today says to me at some time or another in life we lose parts of ourselves, but we keep going on with what we have left. I’m so glad our friendship is something I will still have with me in 2011. Happy New Year Ruth.
