Born With Love

Tulips on Campus

Tulips on Campus

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” Marianne Williamson

Places for Study

Morgan Library

Morgan Library

Lory Student Center provides a place to eat, lounge, 3 coffee shops, book store and places to study for the students. This is one of those small alcoves with chairs and couches for study time. I am standing at directly behind a couch with one student stretched out and sleeping. 🙂

Morning Bus Ride

Listening to Tunes

Listening to Tunes

This is a common scene in the morning as I head for the Transit Center on campus. Students sit in foggy states, staring off into space and earbuds plugged in. There are many reasons for this state. It may be way too early in the morning for them, or they may have stayed up way to late watching a movie, studying or it could be both. I know the feeling as some mornings my thinker is just not functioning yet. Anyway, I’m on campus with a breve mocha this morning and awake. Have a super awesome week!

Study Time in the Kindness Lounge

This is a common scene on campus. I probably could come home with a dozen such images each day I wander on campus. However, something interesting about this image is the lack of earbuds by this young lady. She is one of the few with them. 

I took this image in the Diane Warren Kindness Lounge at the Lory Student Center. The lounge is a study area with a great view, fireplace and an interesting sculpture located outside the windows. It is usually quiet so it is perfect to finish your last minute readings.

Study-time in the Shade

Study-time in the Shade

If you wander anywhere on campus at Colorado State University you  will find it pretty quiet. That will change on the 21st when classes begin. There are two small coffee shops on campus at the Lory Student Center and another at Morgan Library. They have good prices, catering to the penniless students and me. 🙂 I sat on the balcony and looked out over the square and noticed this student in study time. I assume they are taking summer courses. I converted this in Silver Efex Pro using one of the presets.
