But selecting the images and spending time in a darker place was like taking a deep breath … or smacking a styrofoam bat against a tree.  A bit of release. 😉

Until I could abide the color amidst the shadows and the light leaking through.

Yes, I remain a bit moody and the rains have yet to fall outside my window but I think, just maybe, it might turn into an okay day.  We’ll see …
