Right now it is sunny outside, and the sky is quite blue, as are the mountains in the distance.
Some times blue is a lovely color. I myself am fond of the aqua shades of blue, the shade of blue that graces these lamps. They matched the carpeting in the house perfectly.
I just can't decide if I think the lamps are horrid, or very cool retro. One moment I like them, the next I don't.
That is pretty much how my whole life is right now...I seem to be unable to get a handle on much of anything.
And because of that, I find myself sinking into the blues.
Stress will do that to you. Even if you think you are just hunky dory, even though you pray and have faith, having so much change going on messes with your mind and emotions.
Making decision about anything becomes almost impossible. Buying a down coat, a house, a kind of cat food...all of it starts becoming very difficult.
As to the lamps, whether I do or don't like them doesn't really matter; the house they hung in was a serious no, and the over head lamps were not enough to make up for the rest.
This blue building is a good example of what life is like for me right now.
I stare at it, and think "Why did they build such a skinny high rise? That just doesn't make sense. I like that it is such a pretty shade of blue though."
Later I look at it again, and realize that actually the building is a triangle shape. Just going a few blocks towards it allows the rest of the building to come into view.
And then it also become apparent that the building isn't blue at at.
It is glass; and blue is just the reflection of the sky.
My mom remembers swimming off the Saltaire Palace as a child. I hear the building is still standing, but in terrible condition. I have to wonder why such a beautiful structure would not have been preserved.
The picture illustrates another enigma: The swimmers actually don't concern themselves with sinking; instead they struggle to push their feet down enough so that they can walk out of the water! Floating actually becomes an issue.
So confusing to think about.
This beautiful building...with a buffalo head for adornment. Curious. Why a buffalo head? Did they sell buffalo? What did the buffalo mean?
I don't know.
So here is how that skinny building looks from another view. How could anyone possibly know this just by looking at it from the first picture?
