Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate

Irish Lace

Machine made? Hand crafted? Not sure, but the design caught my attention. Is the art of handmade lace still alive? I don’t know the answer; I could not imagine having the deftness, the litheness, the sleight in my hands at my age. But whenever I see handmade laces in museums, I find myself, eyes as close to the glass as one could be, in awe and amazed.

Daily Gratitude: seeing the crabapple, red bud, Korean Spice viburnum, and daphne blooming simultaneously; talking with my parents at breakfast; giving gifts

Quote of the Day: i am a work in progress dressed in the fabric of a world unfolding offering me intricate patterns of questions rhythms that never come clean. ~unknown

I was trying to take a panoramic photo with my iPhone, and just as I was about to delete it—I took a closer look.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

P1140476

Daily Gratitude: flowers from a friend <3; warmth from the sun; greening grass

Quote of the Day: How beautiful, buoyant, and glad is morning! The first sunshine on the leaves: the first wind, laden with the first breath of the flowers—that deep sigh with which they seem to waken from sleep; the first dew, untouched even by the light foot of the early hare; the first chirping of the rousing birds, as if eager to begin song and flight; all is redolent of the strength given by rest, and the joy of conscious life. ~Letitia Elizabeth Landon, “Rebecca,” The Book of Beauty: Comprising a Collection of Tales, Poems, &c., 1833

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Trish, Mosaic Artist

Trish, Mosaic Artist

 It’s not the person who is posing for the picture in the bright light of the colorful stained glass window that caught my eye, nor the multitude of mosaics that lined the artist’s walls. No, it was the photographer who was taking a woman’s photo in the most perfect light that caught my eye as I turned to go.

Daily Gratitude: the bright smile of our waitress; tulips peeking their heads out of the ground; a headache dissipating
