A Day To Do Nothing.

 Sometimes we all need a day where we are completely relaxed. A day where we are not restrained by the hands of time. I had such a day yesterday. (Today promises to be of the same caliber, once I find my way out of the cyber world.)

On this day, time meant nothing. There was no rushing to do anything. Just a simple reassurance that I could do as I pleased in as little or much time as I pleased.

It was the Heart of Virginia Festival and hordes of people came out to enjoy the day. I spent it with friends and the main focus for us were the photo shoots that we had planned. (Those pictures will come later.) 

I couldn't help but notice the abstractness and the geometricness (ha. I think I just made up a word. Take delight in it.) of the architecture of this church. 

Repeating lines are pretty cool, I think.

There were lots of simple delights to enjoy at the Festival. It was really cool to see all of the different ways that people's creativity flows out from their mind to something tangible.

I was cruising along the sidewalk, when all of a sudden I caught a whiff of honeysuckle. I have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of these delightful creations. I love the smell and of course the dew from them. =) 

I could have spent hours here in the peace, serenity, and solitude of the country. The rolling, yellow fields with the blue sky made me so happy.

I wanted to spend a long time just sitting here by the river and listening to the river flow...soaking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the countryside. 

Days like yesterday don't come very often. In my opinion, days like that should be a frequent occurence in everyone's life. So go. Take a day off. Enjoy it. Take someone with you, or just go on your own and ponder deep thoughts.
