What is Beauty?

Is it a summer sunrise over the ocean? or a soft winter snowfall? or a bride on her wedding day? is it little children blissfully running barefoot through a sprinkler? or morning dew on the grass? Is it a person or an object, a time or a place? What IS beauty? All these things are BEAUTIFUL, but they themselves aren't BEAUTY. Calling things such as sunsets and snowflakes beautiful must mean that there is a higher standard of beauty-but what is it? What is the standard? What is Beauty?

bouquet (7.25.11)

I think that
you should
put some ferns in
bunches of flowers
I would if we
had some
we do in the
but they usually
spores all over them
which makes them
with the little yellow
pokey spots
all over the nicely

(i can still write!!! i'm gonna have to write something about youth camp [that's the camp i just got back from] soon...)

arguably the most delicious thing in the world...

ok, so while we were camping we made fried dough, that was great, but then we got all creative and decided to make a type of fried s'more. We put some Hershey chocolate and marshmallow inside (calzone style) and fried it all up. The result? culinary heaven. Warm crispy dough surrounding rich melty chocolate and hot gooey marshmallow. be still my beating heart. Here's a picture so you can visualize:
see?? i bet you're drooling right now.

The Teacher-a drabble of 100 words.

The room was solitary, only one person occupied its quiet but she knew that in just a mere month it would be filled with company- messy, neat, loud, shy, short, tall, thin, pudgy, rambunctious, difficult, and beautiful children. She puttered around, adjusting a bulletin board that held the name of each child written on a bright autumn-colored leaf, straightening a desk and dreaming about her first first grade class. Hearing footsteps coming toward the door of her classroom, she turned around and watched as a young girl, tightly holding her mother's hand approached and then timidly knocked on the door.
