feeling light



i went to the beach, and it was full of drift wood, shells and other beautiful treasures after the rain and storm last week.

the beauty of a feather becomes so much more apparent when the perfection is broken. curls, waves, irregularities.


my mom is coming tomorrow. i am so happy. the kids too. they have been counting the days. or rather asking every morning, is she here now? will she come today? i play the part of the patient soul - no, just a few more days. she'll be here before you know it. i think i am comforting myself too :)


fading out from here with some beauties picked in the garden a few days ago. the light seems to have brought a love for yellow :)

  7. I think your drawing skills are going to try out my English vocabulary. This is one case where the drawing is so more beautiful than the real object. It's incredible how simple lines can become such a complex image. Enjoy your mom's visit. I hope she brings you some that jam:)

  18. Beautiful photos and esp. that drawing of the feather. You're right - sometimes it is when things are not so perfect that they are their most beautiful.

    I've enjoyed looking through your blog... you have such an interesting life. Maybe it is just so different from mine. I love your positive spirit, though (as with the garden boxes), as that is something we have in common :)
