Self-Portait?

I'm home sick today, reading (yes, it's okay...be jealous). Sometimes, being sick can almost be worth it - ya know?!

Anyway, this is how I feel today:
May you find some (healthy) time in your day today to feel this way, too.

Nice. One of those pics to inspire a short story contest. Fee; better.

Bethany Mattingly said...

Sorry to hear you're sick, but I'm impressed at your positivity -- or at least I think you're taking an optimistic view of illness with that beautiful image of a fairy set free and walking into the light and the idea that you have some time to read. Hope you feel better soon.

I hope you feel better! Or... wait... Really, I hope you feel just enough better so that you're not too bothered, but not enough better to go back to work so you can continue feeling like the (awesome btw) picture :-)

Stephanie Thornton said...

Love the pics! Enjoy your day off!

Catherine Denton said...

Been let out of the cage, huh? Hope you feel better soon.

Oh, feel better. My husband and I always feel like we got a "Get out of jail free" card, when my parents take the kids for a sleepover!

Those are the best sick days when you can't go anywhere but aren't too sick to read or watch DVDs. No guilt, no stress, just release. Love that pic.

Yeah, sometimes being sick can be good. But, only if you get to stay home. : )

Hope you get to feeling better!

Thanks for all the warm wishes, everyone. I'm thrilled you all love the magical picture - I loved it instantly. Something about just tugs at me from the inside out. :)

Loving that picture--wouldn't the world be such a nicer place if everyone felt that way?

I love pictures like this. It's so easy to be inspired enough to form a story from it!

I'm fighting off a cold, refusing to let it have sway. But if it does take me down, I picked up 8 chapter books from the library, so I'll do a little reading too. Hope you feel better!

Sharon Mayhew said...

Feel better soon, Shannon!

Christina Farley said...

Oh, I just love that picture. Hope you feel better. Read an extra chapter for me.

Jessie Oliveros said...

I love it! I've been trying to get out of that cage for awhile to write, but it's hard with a baby. I hope you get better!
