“…when she trod on the mud, the mud was beautiful; when she ran in the rain, the rain was silver…” (C.S. Lewis, “Til We Have Faces”) Home. A long day […]

They won. 12 to 2. My cutie-pie niece– She scored a goal, I bought pizza. “Go Blue!”
Daydreaming beneath a snow white trellis, listening to the whisper of flowers sharing secrets, I smile and think about everything in my life that I am most in love with.
A delicious catch.
Cradled by hills, sleeping in the arms of mountains. Usually I save my summers for an Ocean, but this year I decided to walk in the woods instead– and you might be […]
… she had wings … ~Dean Jackson For someone with the soul of a limitless sky.
When he died, he left me his watch. “To remember our times together…” his note said. His second gift, I found in a small black satin bag, tied with silver […]
Lying in a golden field, beneath a golden sky, watching a falling sun slowly start to dream~
It’s not a crowded beach. It’s a very small beach. There is one hotel, two modest motels, an amazing pizza parlor and a bar that’s situated in the trees. I […]
Fun with a few of the newest petals on my balcony. Orange. Wet. Delicious.
There’s something remarkably and distinctly beautiful about sitting beneath a soft ocean-rain.
I see his playful smile reflected on the water, feel the coolness of his breath in the rain and hear his song every Spring– I can feel it … Summer’s […]
“…I saw the infinity and flew towards him with eyes wide open, word and dream..” (Mariana Fulger) My weekend window.
Nothing wears a sunset like the ocean.
I always wanted to be tall. Wish un-granted. I’m barely 5’1. Normally a nice pair of high heels compensate for any insecurity in that department. At work my motto is, […]
“…you will never regret time spent blowing bubbles…” Saturdays are for sleeping late, long stretches, pancakes (French Toast if you live in my house) and a brief return to free-spirited, […]
The view from one of my favorite places in the whole world.
It’s the kind of place you go on a Saturday. You know the place. A small bell, attached to the top of the door rings when you open it, local […]
Its almost Spring. Let’s get carried away.
I saw Winter, walking in a flower shop, blowing kisses, calling Spring’s name. He reached for her, she danced away. Locked in chase, happiest looking into one another, she finally surrendered, gave herself […]
Salty flames, sandy embers and evening’s gaze often find me here. Wrapped in flannel. Wishing on stars. And I couldn’t help but think, as we sat there, wish, wonder and […]
I found a Mercury sleeping on a hillside. A veteran of open roads, desert highways and downtown city streets… he sleeps now, taking a well deserved rest… He is, after all, one of the […]
Who kissed who first, I couldn’t say. Was it Light? Was it Night? Tucked inside a wooden hollow, night met day. One. Together. Intertwined, their colors exploded, dancing across a mountain […]
Some windows should never be closed … especially ones that keep so many secrets.
“We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle…” (Marilyn Monroe) Wearing polka dot rain boots, sheltered by a red umbrella, I sat with morning on an antique park […]
Satisfied with sleep and deep with dreams, I lay beneath a rainbow bower~ waiting for the sun to wake my world.
Love. Vintage. Roadside. America.
This is a true story. I was thirteen the first time I stepped into an abandoned log cabin. My cousin Shane and I were hiking in an extremely dense, remote area […]
“…And I think to myself, what a wonderful world…” ~Louis Armstrong
I taste morning. Wet. Soft. Blue. And breathing mist, with his taste in my mouth, I found myself sweetly nestled beneath protective branches, cuddled by an oversized flannel and captivated by […]
When it rains, I wear pearls. Pearls and red lipstick. And suddenly thundery shades of gray become glittery, glistening and romantic.
“Just another ordinary, miracle today.” (Sarah McLachlan) Sitting in the sand, kissed by the light.
Some days were made for Nikes, pony-tails, backpacks and road maps … today was one of them. After all, a girl can only handle so much work — at least this […]
“Any color–so long as it’s black.” ~Henry Ford
A Sunday stroll and shopping at my favorite metro boutiques~ Washed in gorgeous bright colors, surrounded by fantastic Italian Renaissance architecture and sipping the best soy white chocolate mocha around […]
I think what I love about this image is that it’s all motion — the wind, the surf, the people, the birds… everyone and everything accept for Lifeguard 423, sitting in a box […]
White hot and deliciously blue~ I’m crazy about cobalt! …the only color that’s HOT and COLD at the same time.
“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” ~OBERON “A Midsummer […]
A Shimmering Sun. Blankets of golden sand. One king size bed sheet and the rhythm of a thousand glistening, turquoise waves washing over me.
I drank Summer and he filled my veins with light.
… Hello Gorgeous …
For the first time in a year, I felt his breath finger my lips and brush my face ~ then he was gone, leaving only this as his promise of […]
And lying there, surrounded by yellow grass, romance painted the sky while the sea, fully surrendering his strength, finally and completely fell in love with the sand.
Painted bronze by the sun and shimmer by the moon, I swim weightless, in a glistening, translucent sapphire sea.
I love the way the sun lulls the moon to sleep~ folding her in arms of light, kissing the shadows where she walked and illuminating her steps with diamond droplets of dew. […]
“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday Happy Birthday to you!” ❤ “…Where liberty dwells, there is my country…” ~Benjamin Franklin
She told me I might grow tired of it… the sand, ~ sticky, salty air (that can wreak havoc on hair like mine) … not to mention the heat. But she was […]
I found these two handsome guys trying to blend in with the landscape ~ hiding in the shadow of a few rusty Tonka Toys … I might not have noticed […]
