I was on the go all day. When I was home...I was still on the go, being that I needed to cut more wood for the stove. Now, when I say cut, that just means cutting to size the TOO LONG pieces I got in the last fire wood delivery.... Continue reading

It was a chilly one. Today entailed some out and about for me, and a late(r than usual) walk for Avery. I have to say, my face kinda hurt when the wind blew! least it's cold, which is more normal for this time of year than, well, warm. All... Continue reading

It's always been my favorite. I've called it my muse. The light and what it does can pull my attention and cause an automatic response to grab a camera. It doesn't always play with me indoors like it does this time of year and what a delight it is! Continue reading

This morning started like any other... Get up, let the dog out, let the dog in, have my meds, start the wood stove going, have my tea, take a shower...but that's when things changed. It's Saturday, you know? I don't have anywhere to be, anything to do (that has a... Continue reading

It's been years since my hair has had its current length. I grew it for a couple years or so back around 2009. Then my life became very stressful and certain important things felt so far beyond my control, that I figured at least I could control how my hair... Continue reading

I don't know what to write about this. It's a theme I've been playing with for a while, but trying to explain it isn't easy to do. The last thing I want is to force words that make it something other than it is. I suppose it's mainly a continued... Continue reading

The damp, cool air enters my lungs and reminds me of other places. But observing the filtered, tall, leafless trees, I know I'm not where I used to be. Simultaneously the nostalgia occurs with an understanding that there's no going back. Life moves on, offering new experiences and opportunities, changing... Continue reading

I'm happy to have the opportunity to return to this ancestor work. Is it the ancestors, or is it just the depths of my own psyche? Is there a difference really? We all contain multitudes...and contradictions...and mysteries...and, of course, beauty. Continue reading

A few months back a friend came to help me cut up some fallen limbs in the back yard. I say some...there was actually quite a lot. There had also been a limb that had fallen at least a couple years prior that I'd just let sit and figured we... Continue reading

It is what it is. My desire for cold, is just another desire I suppose. Better to be in this moment and take what beauty there is to be had. It'll be a good day for a walk in the woods...maybe with a camera or two. No coat will be... Continue reading

Had a busy first half of the day. Second half less so. Then catching up with a good friend over Skype this evening. Makes for a good Friday. Continue reading

that little twitch, that imperceptible rumble, that the spring will surely inspire... not just yet, but soon. when you reach a certain age, time is different and everything is soon. Continue reading

Light coming in at low angles...some how triggers a longing. Longing for what? Maybe anything. It's sweet...and sure, a bit bitter. There is a balance. Continue reading

Three years ago today we had quite a lovely little snowfall. I do remember it sort of thwarted my birthday party and only neighbors who could walk here came. Still, that may be the last really significant winter storm I remember. I've only been here for five winters, this is... Continue reading

...and spring will be here. Well, we've hardly had any winter yet. I need to stop looking at extended forecasts and wishing for snow. If it comes, it will come and if not it just means an earlier growing season. The light and shadows have been lovely on these sunny... Continue reading

Ah, the morning after all the celebrations are over. Firstly, there's a sense of deep satisfaction. It was interesting to observe how enjoyable all of yesterday was. Planning, preparing, experiencing the camaraderie of friends and then cleaning up after the party was all rather lovely. At one point, I did... Continue reading

Here we go again (and what a blessing that is). Another beginning (well, every day...every moment is, no??). Despite the distressing situations in the external world, I'm grateful to be alive...I know I'm fortunate. I finished the final 365 drawing last night. Spending the evening baking and cooking, I didn't... Continue reading

2020...I remember when that used to sound way futuristic. Goodness. It's been a lovely New Year's Day. Avery and I had a good walk down to the river. We're home now and I'm contemplating dinner. Maybe some black eyed peas with sweet potato chunks, greens and miso over a bed... Continue reading

I read a FB status update from 10 years ago. I wrote something to the effect of, "not sorry to see this year end." Funny thing...I can't remember what was so terrible about it! Things were stable on the home front, the kids were doing well, my marriage was intact.... Continue reading

I had a lovely holiday visit with the family in California. At the same time, it's so good to be home. I'm not getting as much today as I'd imagined, since jumping right back into east coast time. It seems a mid-day nap was necessary. Since it's gray and rainy... Continue reading

I enjoyed a lovely Winter Solstice evening yesterday. Avery and I had a walk in chill air, coming home to a warm fire, twinkly lights and candles. It was quiet and thoughtful. Before long the light will return. But in the mean time, I still hold out hope for a... Continue reading

It's the shortest day/longest night of the year. The temps are chilly making it an indoor day. I finally got to my other roll of current black and white film. These are on Tri-X that expired in the early 2000's, if I remember correctly. It's amazing how fine the negatives... Continue reading

It's been an interesting year. Well, I suppose if paid attention to, any year would prove of interest. Now that 2019 coming to a close, I welcome the holidays and the energy of the new year. I'm finding my solitude helpful in efforts toward introspection. Being present to current circumstances... Continue reading
