a single day













A day is like a whole life. You start out doing one thing, but end up doing something else, plan to run an errand, but never get there … And at the end of your life, your whole existence has the same haphazard quality, too. Your whole life has the same shape as a single day.
~Michael Crichton

I’m working to get myself on a better routine these days and I feel so much more
productive. Less time online, more time for all the other things I’ve been wanting to do, such as spending more hours outdoors. Now if the weather would only cooperate..

  1. This is my favorite type of captures, the everyday moments. Your light is amazing and it is wonderful to see snippets of you lovely day. Thank you for sharing!

  2. If I did all that in a single day, I’d be just like Mozart at the end of it. You need to bottle your energy and sell it. I’d be first in line.
    Each photo is unique and gorgeous.

  3. I’m breathing in your photos. And then smiling at Mozart, who knows that routine is the road to freedom. Enjoy our spring! We’re certainly enjoying it through your camera lens.

  4. I love everything about this post! The images are beautiful and the quotes are wonderful. Good luck with your routine! I’m currently embracing chaos… 😀

  5. Oh my, only you can make cracked eggshells a work of art! These are all wonderful. The umbrella….ummmm. But of course all the cat shots steal my heart.

  6. Still in the midst of moving scramble, but your post gave me a vision of that light at the end of the tunnel! Thank you so much for this calming sequence, as always.

  7. the eggshells. I love the eggshells. I was just thinking, as I perused your wonderful photos, why does no one take pictures of dirty dishes, or the mess we make preparing food, and there they were: the eggshells and the dirty dishes. So fine. And the lilacs are lovely also. Thank you for your small comments also that link the images so simply.

  8. Good thoughts, hope the weather has cooperated enough to get out more than in…I like Crichton’s notion: it is generous, I think. And I’m particularly fond of the last two photographs – such bliss.
