A second look

Sometimes it's hard to find a bright spot in your day. Maybe it's just been a long haul and you forget to look around you and see a spark of beauty in the darkness. I left school today thinking there was no way I could take a picture of something for the blog. I didn't know the boy who was killed in a car accident this morning, but the announcement after school today shocked and saddened me and made me remember the morning I received a phone call 2 years ago saying that two of my students had been killed in an accident. Tragedy always strikes a chord in us because we are all members of the human race and undeniably, we are connected to one another.

Yesterday, I took a picture of the slush on my roof. Today something else was in the same place on the roof, something different. And somehow, I feel hope amidst the saddness.

I love the first picture with more white slush and the leaf off center. I really, really like it.
The next few days may be difficult but just like two years ago you will offer so much support and kindness to your students. They are fortunate to have you.

Your lovely images did convey a sense of hope, Jayme. Great job on the exposure...snow can be tricky.
