“We all experience it. Those moments when we gasp and say, “Oh, look at that.” Maybe it’s nothing more than the way a shadow glides across a face, but in that split second, when you realize something truly remarkable is happening and disappearing right in front of you, if you can pass a camera before your eye, you’ll tear a piece of time out of the whole, and in a breath, rescue it and give it new meaning.”
~ Joel Meyerowitz
for light, shadow and some supermarket blooms, as the days grow a bit longer
For a fleeting moment we pause and note the sunlight on the sheets as we make the bed, note the warm sun on our cup as we sip tea, or note the fading light on the curtain as we enter the room. And we let out a breath or sigh. Pausing.
~ Elizabeth Searle Lamb
“The more detailed the memory, the longer the moment seems to last. This explains why we think that time speeds up when we grow older. Childhood summers seem to go on forever, while old age slips by while we’re dozing. The more familiar the world becomes, the less information your brain writes down, and the more quickly time seems to pass.
Time is this rubbery thing. It stretches out when you really turn your brain resources on, and when you say, ‘Oh, I got this, everything is as expected,’ it shrinks up.”
~ David Eagleman
I feel the need to put the brakes on
slow things down
explore the unfamiliar
record the details
As I do every year at this time, I will continue with some short posts consisting of mainly images with few words. The comments will be off until late August. Easy peasy…that’s how I like my summer.
(Should you want to contact me, you may reach me at my email listed on my About Page.)
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens
I’m grateful for any sunshine these days…

Mozart is there too…he’s pretty chill about it
