early morning light

early morning

up early
my half closed eyes immediately focused
on this amazing light coming through my kitchen window
so of course I had to grab my camera
sometimes the best photo ops are when you least expect them
no planning, no deliberate searching
it’s right there
right before your eyes
like a gift
for the taking


Happy weekend everyone!

Art Work


The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.

~Pablo Picasso

a day

to remember




a lost art?

The climbing tree

growing up, my friends and I were master tree climbers
there wasn’t a tree we couldn’t shimmy up in our neighborhood
and we built a tree house in the Willow in my parent’s backyard
but my grandmother had the best trees
we climbed to pick the freshest fruit on her apple and pear trees
and manuevering up to the top of the Butternut was a daily excercise
the view was spectacular!
this summer, when I spotted this big old tree on Cape Cod
it brought back memories of all those fearless climbing adventures
my question is
do kids still climb trees?

rainy days and impatience


bad enough that the last few days have been cloudy, rainy and unbelievably muggy
now I just learned that I have to wait until January for this to come back…
