Hi everyone, the splashy clue and pretty color palette over at C.S.I inspired me to get out my white cardstock, ink emboss, mist and ink away.
During our vacation in Santa Barbara, I'd follow you around through the view finder of my newly purchased camera, fiddling with the different features and clicking away on the shutter button. After a while you grew tired of me imposing on you to pose for the camera and said, “Stop taking pictures of me.” One evening, after dinner, we took a walk on the beach to watch the sunset. And, again, I asked you to pose for the camera, but you weren't in the mood. So I walked up the beach with the camera's viewfinder glued to my eye looking for anything to focus on and snap a picture. And then, I saw it! I saw a message written in the sand. I eagerly hurried up to discover the message before the waves erased it from the beach. And while I'm hurrying, I'm wondering who wrote it, what it said, and was eagerly looking forward to capturing it on film. There I am so excited and standing right in front of the sand written message, focusing the lens of the camera, fiddling with the aperture and shutter speed, and then the message clearly materializes through the view finder, and it read, “Stop taking pictures of me!” Silly me, I should have suspected it was you who had written the message because you and I have always played little tricks on each other. I looked up from the message and saw you gyrating up and down and laughing in that witches cackle you inherited from me.
If you arrived here, then I must thank you for your patience in reading that journal. I normally don't write that much, but that picture required an explanation from me. Ha. Thanks for looking.
