I took this shot a while back while roaming around the Capitol area during the Texas Book Festival. Some clouds provided a nice diffused light so I took the opportunity to get a daytime shot of the Capitol building. Lots of folks were out that day enjoying the mild weather.

I very, VERY rarely crave sweets but right now I fell like I would mercilessly and righteously fuck up one of these “Texas Sized” donuts (that tiny looking one is actually a pretty good sized donut of more conventional dimensions) from Round Rock Donuts. Too damn bad they are 1300 miles from here.
“My name is Dru Davis and I am Wendy Davis’s daughter. I hate that I feel the need to write this, but I have been reading and hearing so many untrue things about my mom and I want to set the record straight. And sadly I feel the need to be crystal clear on the malicious and false charge of abandonment as nothing could be further from the truth. My mom has always shared equally in the care and custody of my sister and me… I can tell you that my mom was a remarkable mother and continues to be so to this day. She was there on my first day of school and my last, and so many days in between. She never missed a school performance or a parent-teacher conference. Even if that meant she had to miss something else important. My sister and I were always her first priority. She was there when I needed her and even when I thought I didn’t. My mom was my Brownie Troop leader. I still remember camping out in the backyard with my troop after our trip was cancelled because of bad weather. She was also my field hockey team mom during my senior year of high school, not to mention that she went with me to every single field hockey camp, tryout, program that I ever had. She helped me sort through college possibilities, helped me with my applications and visited colleges with me.”
