Before going home I stopped in West Lebanon to buy some cotton-pink candy thread and diamond embellishments to adorn my Orphaned Princess collage. Getting back into my car I noticed some tree branches brushing against the window, their yellow berries shed a ready splash of color across the cement-gray parking lot. I reached for my camera and began photographing them, trying to capture the glass-like droplets that clung to the tiny, lemon spheres. While I tried to target a single berry, my camera instead chose to focus on the space beyond. Light broke through the viewfinder as sky and leaves replaced the sunny berry and dark, tree trunk. Although an imperfect shot, I inhaled the light
letting it melt away my stuffy head and fatigued mind.
