Roll on happy circles, roll on

If you know me, you know I LOVE dots. Full dots, empty dots, circles in any size, shape or form. So this weeks’s 52 Photo Project prompt – CIRCLES – sure does float my boat!

Dictionary.com has many definitions for circle, here are the first five.

cir•cle [sur-kuhl], noun, verb     1. a closed plane curve consisting of all points at a given distance from a point within it called the center. Equation: x2 + y2 = r2.     2. the portion of a plane bounded by such a curve.     3. any circular or ringlike object, formation, or arrangement: a circle of dancers.     4. a ring, circlet, or crown.     5. the ring of a circle.

Needless-to-say (at least in my humble opinion) these do not do the circle justice! Very dry explanations for an amazingly fabulous shape.

My favorite thing about circles, dots, ovals, anything round in fact, is that they appear to have no beginning or end. They are constantly continuing . . . rolling on and on.

Circles are happy shapes; they invite touch and stir memories – of the sun, familiar faces, delicious fruits, bouncing balls and much more. All that round goodness in a closed plane curve consisting of all points at a given distance from a point within it called the center.
