Deep breath— I am so ready for this. Crazy to think that this is my last spring of college. But I feel so rejuvenated. I spent most of my spring break in a floaty strapless sun dress, letting the sun bake my shoulders. Yesterday, my drive through Indiana was inspirational, to say the least. At one point, I found myself on a winding road. On my left: a sweeping field, a hillside dotted with brown and black cows, and even little calfs. On my right: a line of innumerable white sycamores, their bark standing boldly in the setting sunlight, the repetition of the white branches mesmerizing. And in my rearview mirror: the sun, perfectly centered over the road, a massive globe in a deep, rich, radiating pink-orange. It was so perfect, it would have been a waste to try to take a picture.
Just for kicks, though, here are some images I shot last spring and summer.

And a couple of perfect quotes:
"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
"Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty, if only we have the eyes to see them."
