claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
do you know that moment when you spot something across the thrift shop that you really, really want? and you are afraid that if you look too interested (much less run over the carefully stacked dishes, the rack of vintage prom dresses, the shelf of votive candle holders with half burned candles still there, the bin of rolled up fabric to fill a bag for 50 cents, the baskets of flip flops), someone else will spot it? and really, if someone else did spot it and show delight in it, i am
willing committed to sharing the joy.
but no one else spotted this wonder before me…this large pizza sized circle waiting among the frames. so i calmly plucked it up and leapt with whole joy on the inside. the label says it is intended for outdoor use and is said to bring good luck. i don’t believe in luck–good or bad, but i do believe in the wonder of circles and patterns, colors and history. so, i will gladly hang this new treasure in honor of the first day of spring.
welcome to it, folks.
