Release

The question is: 
 "What do you do to lighten up? How do you let go of the stressors of your day? Open the wine? Turn up the tunes? Get it down on the yoga mat? Start a new book? Bubble-bath? Run-bike-hike-walk?"
(My contribution to Gallery 10 of the 52 Photos Project)

Many times I go to a quiet place with my camera.
Other times, I sit at the computer and play with the photos I've taken.
Sometimes I get a fresh pedicure (and then sit and admire my pretty pink toes)!
Sometimes I use my phone camera to snap a picture of the freshly washed apple I am about to consume for lunch along with the reflection of my feet in the restroom mirror!
I've been recently surprised to find how much I enjoy sitting quietly at my desk while eating a relatively healthy lunch (summer is so very quiet, this would probably not work so well during the fall and spring semesters).

  2. In the fall and spring, you'll need to find a quiet AWAY place to take your healthy lunch, even if it's just one of those benches on the quad. When it's cooler, a'course.

  5. Loved them all, especially the pretty pink pedicure. I rarely get them and when I do I'm amazed at how much I can look at my toes. ;)
