    So who took these pictures? David Copperfield? Photoshop? Hmmm. You left their shadows
    Half-marathon over. Sabbatical year over. It's back to "sacking shirt and oat cakes" as they say here.

    Sometimes when we don't want certain people around us anymore, we can sweep them out of our lives like in Photoshop... but their 'shadows' still linger behind.
    I just love the title of this thread. If only life was so simple!

    Have you ever biked under a bridge like that when a train is crossing overhead?
    I have, and it's SCARY!! You know there's nothing to fear, but your heart starts racing in fear anyway no matter what you tell it.
    The second time, I actually stopped and let the train pass before going under the tunnel. I was chicken.

    It's a sculpture field in Dublin Ohio, created to honor the inventor of hybrid corn.
    I thought it looked appropriate for wishing someone into a cornfield.

    there is something very spiritual about fields of grain and tall grasses. I don't know quite what.

    Before we bought our house together, my husband used to gaze out at a clump of tall wetland grass growing across from his back yard. He said it was restful.
    So when we bought our little house, I got some very tall 7' decorative grasses and planted them right outside our bedroom window. When we have our coffee in bed in the morning, we get to see the tall grasses swaying and rustling outside the window across from our bed. It is so very peaceful and calming.

    Speaking of rustling cornstalks and grasses.....

    What are your favorite soothing sounds? (not music)

    I'll say:

    rustling tall grass or corn

    the sound of long hair being brushed

    Anyone else get sort of hypnotized by certain sounds or events?

    Sometimes when I am upstairs in my office at home and my husband is practicing his fiddle downstairs, the muffled sound of him fiddling far away puts me into a trance. I'll find myself staring at my computer screen or out the window unable to turn my eyes to something else, or even to move much. I'm in a very pleasant trance that I cannot escape from. Then when he's finally done, I snap out of it and return to a state of reality.

    Rain.

    That would explain my general feeling of lethargy since I moved to WA
