Flights of Fancy

Lost in conversation about the essentials of life last evening in our office,
my Farmer and I
were joined by
our 8 year old daughter's
hopping across the room,
arms flapping 
and an expression
that told us
she was somewhere far away.

 My husband was suddenly jarred from concentration by her movements.

"Violet, please stop being an imbecile,"
he teased.

Violet, as if having been hurled back into consciousness casually proclaimed,

"I'm not being an imbecile.

I'm flying."

Oh, to take wings on the imagination of childhood. 

Participating in the Black and White Photo Party at:

  1. I like her self confidence! She knows what's up!!


  2. What a cool photo. It's got a magical quality about it. Almost like it belongs in a fairytale book. Thanks for linking.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for following. I'm glad to have found you too, and am now following you back! I love your blog theme!

  4. Thank you! I love the way this picture turned out myself. I had a canvas made out of it in color for my wall. It expresses my daughter so well. :)

  5. She looks like a beautiful fairy in a garden! And, yes, children can fly...

  6. What a lovely picture. So ethereal and your little girl is sure a smart one with her comeback...lol..
