I will always love books. The very thing-ness of them. The design, the way they age, their heft.

I miss those college days when I had time to sit on the floor of the used book store, combing through art books or scanning for paperbacks. I consistently had an appetite for books – pictures, places, words, possibilities  – that exceeded the hours in a day.

I dream that someday I’ll have time for books again. Time to open the cover and disappear into the world of the story. Time to read the most beautiful words twice.

P.S. How do you like the new blog design? I wish the pics were bigger, but otherwise I dig it.

two-fer mother’s day

I snapped a few shots of Sawyer & Zola yesterday while they were running around by the creek. It’s how I like to see them best – in nature, being happy & free, fully alive & taking it all in. I love the dim reflections in the creek behind them and the play of sunlight on their skin. Mostly I just love them.

Happy Mother’s Day!

06.03.13 roll with it

There is all kinds of wisdom to be gathered by watching children.

  • Make your own fun.
  • Play is a priority.
  • It’s OK to get a little dizzy as long as you have a good ride.
  • Who cares about getting dirty??

And, of course,

  • just roll with it.

I have so much to learn.

02.07.13 black lights, big city

Yesterday was Zola’s first ever class field trip. It was my first black light performance complete with hyper-color puppets, and a gaggle of giddy preschoolers but no Pink Floyd to speak of…

Thanks to Imagination Theatre for Valentine’s Day Surprise: a play that dazzled us with a levitating circus in a sea of black and taught us that the key to happiness is to open your heart to the love and kindness within you.
