Day 209: Shadow Play…

Every now and then I’ll come across some type of muse that just speaks to my heart….tonight when I got home from a long day this one happened to be staring me in the face.  Everything seemed to fall into place for me and I laughed at myself for being so analytical.  

One of my dad’s favorite cowboy statues was casting a shadow on my wall and I thought for just a second that it must be a sign that my rootin’ tootin’ cowboy hero was sending down a little smile just for me – bc boy did I need it today!

This statue is one of my favorites also bc it looks like how my dad would stand.  With his hips tipped forward, rocking on the toes and hill of his boots, hands buried inside the pockets of a worn out pair of wranglers and a cowboy smirk hiding mischief under a mustache.  The shadows made the ordinary, extra-ordinary to me today!

My scentsy illuminated the statue bigger than life on the wall and the Jack Daniels flask made the shadow look like a barrel (appropriate if you knew my dad) the light made a heart to the right and I thought how did this all come together so perfect?
