This is a compilation post of the kind that I love doing the most, especially since I don’t recall ever doing a circular gallery in eight years of blogging.
I went quickly through all the photos that I took this year (almost 9500) and selected 24 various round shapes that caught my eye.
But first, here is a drabble, which in my case is a 100-word (true) story, not counting the title. I got the idea of coming up with one hundred of them for a book. Slowly but surely.
Three circles “Do you see that door, and the three circles? This is where they come in, where I feed them. Do you think I should?” She half-chuckles as if to say: I know how crazy it sounds. Be gentle. “Well, grandma, they came all the way here to find you. They must be hungry.” I didn’t say it then, but now I do. Then I held her hand, hugged her, said it was okay. Over her shoulder I looked at the three air shafts of her retirement home room. If I squinted, I could see them. Her ducks, barely, but there.
And now, here is my year in circles and twice in wheels. It starts out a bit sad and distanced but it picks up in May when I could finally go places again and especially in July when I went to Slovenia.
Today you need to click on a photo to see the caption. This way you can learn more about the occasion, location, or me.
This day in my blogging history
