Taking It All In
This afternoon was warm and sunny and I was stuck in my office waiting for my boss to get off the phone so I could go ask him about some papers he left on my desk the previous day. He had changed his mind about something I thought we had worked out weeks ago and I wasn't feeling so full of energy to go tackle it again with him. I decided to go take a break and get some fresh air. Luckily I brought my purse and my digital camera was inside so I was able to capture some photos of flowers in bloom.
Here's the music building I sneak into with my friend to practice old jazz tunes on our lunch break occassionally. The campus at OSU is so beautiful in the summer.
I rounded the corner from the music building and saw this display in front of the library. It was stunning to see all of the white flags in the sun. I looked for a sign and saw iraqbodycount.org
Each white flag represents 5 iraqis who have died and each red flag represents 5 Americans who have died.
As I walked around to take photos, I took note of all of the international students hanging out and I felt so fortunate to be on a university campus that moment. On my way out I saw this on the sidewalk, I think it was left from a blood drive.
