i yearn for the soft metallic light of the sunrise over the atlantic.

for the joy of discovery.

for the playful chatter of gulls and pelicans.

and the peace that only the ocean can provide.


my community lost a gentle soul today.  he was a good good man and a great judge.

i imagine he is in a place surrounded by all these gifts of the sea.  a place where each child is loved and safe.

i needed rest and peace and space and creating and connecting with kindreds.

i received this and so much more.

i'm still softly resting in a good internal place so i'll apply what i learned in kate's writing class and not let the words get in the way of the story.

morning views

yesterday:  this mightiness.

today:  a wee forest exploding in autumn color.

tomorrow:  the rearend of the car in front of me on the drive to work.

the trick is to soak each in with gratitude and accept the gifts as the day unfolds.

autumn lovefest

  • two perfectly lovely autumn weekends in a row. 
  • computer-slash-camera issues successfully resolved (and now i am poor).
  • lots of good reading in the meantime.
  • one more workweek until art-yoga-beachy vacation.
  • thinking about fondue for dinner.
  • followed with cozy lovechat by the campfire.
  • possible storytelling.
  • definite stargazing.

believe me when i tell you i am obsessed with silver balls.

for bella's 52 photos project:  circles.

p.s.  looks like i'm going to be shooting with the iphone for the next few weeks.  major computer crash and canon issues at the same time.

hello october

you are perfect.  today you have hit nearly all of your adjectives:  crisp, clear, breezy, colorful, cozy, delicious.  i don't think it can get any octobery.

you are so perfect that i'm not even minding blogging from this crappy old laptop because my computer took a dive.  you inspired me to go with the flow and not freak out.  you inspired me to say what i need.  out loud.  you inspired me to make a grilled cheese and apple sandwich on cinnamon bread.  you inspired me to paint.  you inspired me to add an extra blanket, open the window and fall asleep with the leaves softly rustling outside.  you inspired me to take a cup of darjeeling and a book to the backyard and let it all go.  and it's only 2:30 in the afternoon.

we're off to a good start.
