The courtyard.

Today the air was chilly when I walked outside.
I liked it surprisingly.

My favorite thing to do on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
is to sit in the courtyard outside the fine arts building 
and watch the yellow leaves flutter to the pavement.
Before they can settle they are swept up in the wind and tossed.
And right before my eyes a sea forms.
A yellow sea.

I close my eyes.
And let the sun drench my face with warmth 
as I listen yellow waves splash against the concrete court yard.

Oh, it is wonderful.

And now for some unfinished business.

TAGGing. I feel indifferent about being Tagged. I am always flattered, sometimes hesitant to participate, but hey they can be fun too- 

I was TAGGED by my friend Melissa and even though I won't continue the TAG on, I will tell you 11 things about me and answer the 11 questions she asked. After all this blog is all about me anyhow!

Eleven Facts about Me:
  1. I love to get my dance on: in the shower, the kitchen, the car, walking to school- the list goes on.
  2. I can't sleep at night, not because I don't want to.
  3. I love to eat vegetables- broccoli, squash, sugar snap peas are among the top choices
  4. I hate having dirty clothes in the hamper. I would wash my clothes everyday if it was feasible.
  5. I have NEVER worn sweats to school unless I had to because our sports team was.
  6. I am the only child in my family who isn't named after someone- I like my name though.
