Day 206 - Happy Pair
Thought of the day: It was the first day of Boulder Spring Festival - there're many weekend festivals and fairs at this time of the year. I took Lila out to downtown in the early morning so the rest of the family can take a break. There were musicians, painters, photographers, craftsmen and vendors setting up booths along Pearl St. A woman was transporting an orphanage girl's photo onto a canvas and she did an amazing job of capturing the poignant expression of sadness on her face. Her almost-finished oil painting stood out in the merriness of the festival crowd and it served as a reminder that there were very different lives going on elsewhere when we were out celebrating spring.
