She Thinks In Technicolor

In glad response to requests for visual corroboration of my previous ramblings (as physical evidence, I'm presuming, that I'm not really just sitting in my backyard inventing marvelous fantasies (a state of affairs the revelation of which would bring my family a sizable shock, I would wager)) I present the first set of photos from my adventure so far. Images depict:
  • Katherine's Birthday Party
  • Flatmates and Friends
  • My Bedroom Inside and Out
  • Campus Views
  • The Homestay
  • London Orientation
  • Departure from the States

These images are available at

http://www.herpicturedthoughts.blogspot.com

which can be accessed anytime by clicking on "My Photos" under "Links" in the sidebar on the righthand side of this blog. More photos will be added periodically. Hope they're enjoyable and informative! (Do let me know if there are issues with the page--does it take too long to load, do some photos not appear, etc.) Love always!

Its always a surprise to see how the images in your mind match up to real life. In this case I was pleasantly surprised, especially by the picture of the Downs. I can only imagine what it would like to be standing there, in that moment, taking it all in. Perhaps one day, but for the time being I can't think of anyone else I'd rather second-hand the experience with. You have quite the knack for description. Keep it comming, I'm enjoying this more than you know!

P.S. I've recently ordered and will soon finish the entire "Books to read to become me" list that you sent me. Amazing stuff! If you have anything at all you left out and would like to add, or have run accross in your travels, drop me a line. You can respond here of course, or my email at AsiD_ReiGN@yahoo.com. As always, thanks a bunch!

I don't know if my favorite picture is the one of Jane Austen's house, or the one of Liz--"I'm ready to go"--standing beneath a lit-up sign reading, "Paragon." Of what, my dear Elizabeth?

The photos are a great addition, and loaded perfectly quickly on my computer. They do not necessarily prove you are in England, though. I remain skeptical, but it's quite a ruse if it is one! Toodles!

I really enjoyed the pictures. Please put up more when you get them. I would especially like to see more with you in them (wearing your new English wardrobe) and of the campus and the surrounding areas. You looked very stylish in the one on the hill. I guess I was also surprised how pretty and pastoral the whole place seemed. I had pictured a somewhat more urban setting based on your descriptions which was not nearly as pretty as your pictures. I must agree with your Mom that nothing in the pictures conclusively proves that you are in England, except perhaps for the picture of you with the scarab beetle (if this could actually be proven to be in the British Museum). Love, Dad

I'm sure if you performed high-tech computer analysis on the photo of the Rosetta Stone, you'd find my reflection in the glass--and you'd be hard-pressed, I think, to find one of those at your local antique shop. So there--concrete proof I WAS in London, at least for one day.

And of course if you so chose you could translate all three elements of the Rosetta Stone for those skeptics out there who might need additional persuasion! That would clinch things, methinks!

The British Museum's web site does confirm that the scarab beetle sculpture pictured with "the one with many names" is indeed in their collection. Just open your web browser to

and compare to our hero's photo. It matches. I'm convinced.

And, of course, the "Paragon" picture was obviously inserted to prove that TOWMN began her voyage in Hawaii, because this is the name of a Hawaiian airline company, though I'm sure we all think of her as a paragon of something or other (beauty, wisdom, virtue, mischief, etc.)
