Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime



Daily Gratitude: finishing an art project for the primary school musical; filling two bags for the thrift store; seedlings peeking their heads through the soil

Quote of the Day:
The only man who is really free is the one who can turn down an invitation to dinner without giving an excuse. ~Jules Renard

Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-Light


in the half-light of dusk
after the day has prepared
hard surfaces for inspection
before the night has plunged
things back into themselves
there is a settlement in which
the external and the internal are
continuous with the evening air
if you are alone at the edge
of shadows you are not alone
the hours of light shine in you
with a compacted energy that
also burns in tree and stone
partly revealed and partly veiled
~~Thomas A. Clark

Daily Gratitude: planting someone’s flower boxes; breakfast and giggles with a friend; surprising afternoon sun

Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony


Sometimes it’s just kismet: I’ll be driving in my car on some back, country road on the way to somewhere, on an errand, keeping an appointment, in quest of some particular trifle, and I come across a scene so incredibly striking that I have to pull over to witness it up close.

Is it the harmony of the flowers against the sky, or the complimentary colors of pink and green? Perhaps it is simply the field of flowers, the sky, and me “forming a pleasing and consistent whole.”

Daily Gratitude: blueberry pancakes; the quiet an early snowfall leaves behind; blood red oranges

Quote of the Day: With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things                                  ~William Wordsworth

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons


I find value in all the seasons. But on this perfectly lovely Spring afternoon, I so enjoyed peeking in on my friend Thelma in the throes of painting plein air in my ever-burgeoning bloomed garden.

Daily Gratitude: lunch with the octogenarians (as they so refer to themselves); lovely spring-like weather; visiting with my brother

Quote of the Day: To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring. ~George Santayana

Dedicated to Thelma

Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Imitates Art


I spied my image in the mirror, quickly snapped it with my camera, thus becoming part of the mosaic at the Magic Gardens in Philadelphia. 

Daily Gratitude: a lovely husband; having dinner with my parents on Valentine’s Day (yep, she’s 89 yrs. old and made us dinner and pie); understanding the complexity of my new camera

Quote of the Day: Art should imitate chance.       ~Ovid

Look! at all the Imitations »
