More lines catching my eye but the first thing to draw me was the light. Love morning light and this was all about the light! The color of the light was lovely but my camera washed out the highlights, nor could I seem to find anything to please me with Lightroom. Finally converted it to black and white in Silver Efex and was then a happy camper. It tickles me and causes a smile. 🙂

Seeing Lines

Stairs and Lines at CSU Campus

Stairs and Lines at CSU Campus

I’m spending more time on campus now that I’m auditing this philosophy class at Colorado State University. A friend of mine is teaching the class and invited me to sit in on the class. And, I am enjoying the class. I take the bus to campus about an hour prior to class then spend a few minutes in the Behavior Science Building where they have a small and busy little coffee shop. These lines lead up the stairs to the other 2 floors and a beautiful patio area looking west to the Front Range. Have a good week.

They actually make a pretty good pizza. I haven’t tried the subs but they look awesome.

Strange to be back in class

Shadows on Campus

Shadows on Campus

I have been spending more time on campus since I began auditing a new class call Spiritual Deminsion of Human Life. I have a friend who is a professor at CSU and has invited me to sit in on this new class. Strange to take a seat in a college classroom after 25 years. 

They have a program for the seniors where at the discretion of the instructor, seniors 55 years of age or older may attend any University class as a visitor without formal registration, provided on campus classroom space is available and it’s free. I can do homework but do not turn it in, nor do I take any quizzes of finals. I’ve found it fun.

Being Present

Being present is about living where I’m at in my own shoes. I cannot live in the past or future. Being present is being awake. Acceptance. I’ve heard it said,  “Reality is only experienced when we live life in the present.” May I live today in the present!
