Wednesday Wonder

" is the union of the ordinary and the miraculous that makes wonder."
Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel

Look Homeward, Angel has held a permanent spot on my bookshelf since I read it almost ten years ago. Sunday I pulled it form the shelf, flipped through the pages, and fell into wonder all over again.

I thought of these flags, discovered during a morning walk (fittingly, in Flagstaff, Arizona!) I had left the boys back at the Motel, and embarked on a mini-adventure all my own.

Magical morning air, wide open skies, a satisfying sense of solitude, and the joyous offerings of an automotive repair lot... if you ask me, Thomas Wolfe got it exactly right.

Happy Wednesday dear friends, I hope you enjoy a wondrous day!


  1. Wow! I love these! Gorgeous fade on the last one. How did you know that orange, yellow, and purple are my favorite color combination?

  2. These are great! Tom Wolfe is my favorite...some of the best observations.
