Seeing Circles: Fire and Ice

Welcome to the weekend!

As I told you recently, my shape for the year is a CIRCLE.  I just love all the places they show up

I actually started “seeing circles” three years ago when keeping Little Man while his Mommy worked. As a very little guy, he had a “thing” for circles.  They were his goto shape; it was amazing to watch.

And so I’ve continued to watch … and circles “jump out” everywhere.  Sometimes they’re associated with warmth …

Sometimes I see them and think “icy cold”
