“…to Say Good Morning and to Really Mean it.”
(365 Day 107 Photo)
I had that song “12:30” in my head yesterday as I was braiding these flowers. It’s one of my favorites from the Mamas and the Papas.
I know they were pretty messed up, but I have a soft place for their albums and when I hear this song I’m overwhelmed by that feeling of melancholy nostalgia and hopefulness. I feel like I need to fly through the front door and just run as fast as I can.
I tried to catch a little flare in these and was successful in the first one. It gives such a serene, warm feeling to the photo.
Unfortunately it wasn’t really that kind of moment. I was in such a hurry to go somewhere that I didn’t bother with a tripod, so I had to crop my contorted arms out of the picture.
Ha! The original has a whole different, circus-like feel to it. But, these are the woes of 365 and a busy life.
Today, however, is that kind of day! : )
On a totally unrelated note, I’ve been about 50 days without using traditional shampoo on my hair and though it is still untamed and in need of a cut, it does seem healthier and is definitely less oily. I can now go 4 to 5 days easily between washings without having to pull it back in a ponytail if I don’t want to; whereas, I used to have to wash every day or it was a grease pit.

Take a look at these images of the band.
Great photos of the flowers in the hair! The lighting is just awesome. The Mamas & the Papas — what a great group!
Ha! Just realized I misspelled both Mamas and Papas! But, if it counts for anything, I did spell "misspelled" right.
