Today I Fell in Love


This time, it was with the cherry blossoms outside of a church down the street from my Mom’s house:


I can’t explain what was happening when I was taking pics today. I felt high, literally. I’ve always been really drawn to these blossoms. When I’m underneath them and zooming in close and there are hundreds of them swirling all around my head in the breeze, it’s like a drug to me. The bokeh (blurry stuff in a pic) goes in and out of focus all around the blossoms when I see them through the lens- it’s a really heady experience.

And speaking of falling in love, I think it’s funny, that expression, “falling in love”. People generally mean with another person. But I was thinking today as I was driving, “Why do we have to fall in love with a person? Why can’t we fall in love with the sky? Or cherry blossoms?”

I’m betting just being around all of these blossoms (in the light drizzling rain) released loads of endorphins. I was smiling and felt like a kid again. So yeah. I’m pretty sure I fell in love with these blossoms today. 🙂

I also noticed when I was driving today that I don’t really think about Josh any more. Days go by and he won’t even cross my mind. I’m soooooo happy about that. It doesn’t hurt any more.

Yeah. I’ve been crazy happy lately. Not sure how long this is going to last, but it’s so good to be feeling ALIVE again.

    I’ve always felt somewhat…obsessed, I guess…with the sunsets I get at my place. Maybe I’ve fallen in love with those? Dunno…But I know what I like. :))

    • I would say so, Dr. C. And there’s nothing wrong with that. :0)

  3. Spring can do that. Was thinking along the same lines today.

    • You’re right about that, Jeff. I think maybe because winter has a way of sucking the life out of us! At first, I’m always glad to see the snow and to feel the biting wind. But after several months of it, I just want spring. :0)
