Faery Dust

Dad and I were sitting at the picnic table in the yard where the children had been doing crafts.

I looked at the ground and it was covered with sparkling glitter--Dad couldn't resist doing a few shadow puppet routines. 

I LOVED Dad's hand shadow--it looks like faery dust springing from the hand of a grande old elf.

But I'm not surprised--after all--Dad IS a Leprechaun in disguise.

I feel your love for you Dad. I also see that hand open to receive the magic dust from the heavens.

What a wonderful shot sissie! I saw the glitter that got spilled and was a little put out ... I guess I was looking at things from the wrong perspective. Thank you for setting me straight!

What a wonderful image. In deed there was a magical quality to it all. I think we should all keep a bag of sparkle in our pocket to share on special occassions that call for a dusting of stars.

Isn't it funny how some of the most simple things are the very best...Great shot.

If you would like a little "Chinese Lady" eye opener. Go to a translation site...I use "Full Text Translation" type in a phrase in English and translate it to Chinese. Now take that Chinese translation and translate it back to English. Because the Chinese express themselves differently then we do there is no direct translation for many word...somethings come out sounding a little strange but if you pay attention you get the jest of what they are saying. It takes a little time to understand but it is worth it to me.

A beautiful, precious moment! Like a shadow puppet that has magically come to life!

I don't doubt for one minute that he holds magic in his palm. Beautiful shot, Beth. And what wonderful time to share there at that craft table.
