a glint of something

July 16 010

"Two hours later, with breakfast eaten, Mother gone to work and the dishes done, the four children escaped at last, and came out into the sun. It was fine weather, warm and blue-skied and full of possibilities, and the day began well, with a glint of something metal in a crack in the sidewalk." - Half Magic by Edward Eager

Once again this is a picture I was not sure why I wanted to post. I kept hearing a voice say "But what's it a picture OF? Does it make sense?" Something about the colors and the splash made me chose it anyway. And the book passage was just serendipitous. I happen to open that book and it clicked. Glad you all liked it too.
