...shadow shot...

true friendship is
sitting together
in silence
& feeling
like it was
the best 
you've ever had.
she has been here.
in the states.
for seven months.
and today.
she leaves.
back home to canada.
what an impact she has made.
in her short stay here.
your heart is expansive.
your laughter is contagious.
your smile is gorgeous.
your spirit is beautiful.
so glad that you chose.
our little part of the world.
to hang out in for awhile.
not good-bye, my friend, just.
'til then.
love you ashley!!
just BE.

This post shows great affection - the caterpillars stay together until the next meeting. Maybe as butterflies, but their paths will cross again...friends always!

Beautiful shadow found in nature.

I love the quote on friendship. ;-)

I do agree with Ralph! It does sound as though you've had a wonderful visit and the post for the day is delightful! Friends always, indeed! Have a lovely weekend, Robin!

Oh my gosh....this is incredible. You have a good eye. Me? I'd probably walk on by without even noticing this.

What a perfect day to visit an old friend, think of you and your mom often, but the time is ever so fleeting with just trying to maintain with this crazy weather. But you know me, no grass grows under my feet...the day is wasting, so better be off onto my next to ya soon lil' sis!

Say hey to Tilda!!!

What a lovely photo of the caterpillars - too often they are ignored. Great shot and shadow.
