May 2011

 The magnolia season lasted only five days this year, ending yesterday compared to lasting from April 7th to April 19th in 2010 (ah, the joys of timestamps on photos).  A few days of warmth in early April coupled with a three week cool spell and tons of rain and wind made for a late and short season.  There is nothing like a magnolia tree to remind you that nothing lasts forever.


This made me cry.  Yes, it had been a long day, but there you are.  Homelessness is one of those things that just kills me.  I really don't think that giving people money on the street is the best way to solve the problem, but then what do you do?  I remember the most astonishing thing visiting Sweden as a seventh grader was the complete lack of homeless individuals.  Thus began the start of what my father would call my "rampant socialist tendencies."  Ah well, if caring means I'm socialist, then so be it.  (from here, via D Sharp Design)
