Mirror, mirror on the wall

Here goes my object story.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
My favorite mirror. Small - but big enough to cram my face in. I got it for my 31st birthday from my husband cousin's wife Katarina, a young talented artist with millions of creative ideas.
Katarina had bought the little mirror with the simple bright orange frame and painted my family on it – the 3 stick figures are my 3 boys (my husband and the kids) and me.
I like the way there's just the 4 of us depicted against the lively orange background – blank, with no background noise or any other distraction - just us. Life sometimes runs faster than I'd like, and is often filled more with things I need to do than with things I want to do. The little painted mirror makes me feel good – its lively colors, its simplicity, the way it magically dispels everyday clutter and brings a smile to my face when I rest my eyes on it. I like it. :-)

A new round of EVO worshops started. :-) I'm on the Digistorytelling team and right now we are in week 2. Over 240 participants joined in from all over the world - many of us are 'old' friends from previous sessions. Like swallows, we keep coming back for more. :-)
One of the Week 2 tasks this week is a 6 word story along with a CC-licensed photo - it's amazing how much can be said in so few words.
