small things daring

Not the first image I've done where I've lined things up, yet I'm sitting here, eyes lingering within, wondering what it is about this act that is so satisfying to me. It's not as if they even need to be lined up "just so." In fact, upon closer reflection, I see now that the one on the left is a bit away - in the shadows - a bit separate from the others and facing the other way. Is she on the threshold of stepping out on her own? Does she hold the tension of being both thrilled to be moving toward her dreams - yet terrified of the prospect of taking those steps into the unknown? Yet the other six are still there. Her community remains within reach.

No metaphors HERE or anything...
