Stacking


My sisters have become quite good at stacking cards lately.
I have found myself stacking too, though a bit differently.
I've been stacking pictures. 
Not literally, of course. 
Just gathering frozen moments onto my camera, then computer. 
This week I've been able to transform some of that stack into posts.
Simple windows onto the past month. 
I decided to publish these posts around when they happened. 
Rather crazy how you can publish in the past. 
I find this helpful for maintaining overall clarity. 
But the little trick has a downside- confusion at the present. 
So I thought I'd write this explanation. 
Thanks for your patience and hello again! 
Hope all is well with you~ Megan

Behind Ballet


Behind the dance studio, there is this alley. It can lead you around our small downtown the back way. Up ahead, a right turn, then left turn would take you to a children's bookstore. If instead you took two left turns, you would come to a bicycle shop. But, if you pivot to your right from this spot, a few steps lead you to the back deck of a local coffee shop. It was a little less than a year ago that friends at dance introduced me to this place. Turns out they have great tea, hot or iced, and Italian soda in a plethora of flavors. Also, the cozy atmosphere and same people at the counter give it a hospitable feeling. Add a few friends, and it's a favorite place to go. I always did like alleys, but it's these special, quiet spots that make them so mysteriously magnetic.
