I typically see this telephone line as an eyesore. But for this moment, I chose to look at it from a different perspective.
Inspiration is where you find it.

A scene from our property line. I am delighted to say that this used to be a bare chainlink fence.

At the end of a long day, there is nothing better than your own bed. This was the only photo I could muster after Saturday’s art fair & just before collapsing onto freshly-washed sheets. It really is the little things…
The deck make-over took over much of my time & energy last week. It isn’t really black but such a very dark gray that it still convey all of black’s modern swagger. It’s a dramatic transformation from the beat-up cedar finish and I couldn’t be happier with the change. Well worth the sweat. Now comes the fun part: living outdoors as much as possible till the snow flies…

This feels like a good companion to a post I created during my last 365 project nearly two years ago: art of everyday life.
Nothing is more intimate (and more overlooked) than the objects we handle every day. These stalwarts exude a simple beauty, weathering the rituals of our days and bearing the marks of our journeys.

I grew up singing ‘How much is that doggie in the window?” and wanting to buy every one I saw. I’m not sure that puppies in windows even exist these days – a good thing, no doubt. But I can’t wait to find the one with just the right waggly tail.
And I do hope that dog is for sale.

They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.

The thing I love about taking photos every day is that everything becomes worthy of contemplation. I consider it all – even the sheets – and find nothing too ordinary.

My parents yard looks like a park with big trees, a sprawling lawn, and flower gardens everywhere. My mom is great at bringing the fresh flowers inside and placing them in nearly every room of the house; it’s one of the many ways she makes things beautiful.
