“Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.”
~ Edith Wharton

living

the warm and the cold

…We want the spring to come and the winter to pass. We want
whoever to call or not call, a letter, a kiss — we want more and more and then more of it.

But there are moments, walking, when I catch a glimpse of myself in the window glass,
say, the window of the corner video store, and I’m gripped by a cherishing so deep

for my own blowing hair, chapped face, and unbuttoned coat that I’m speechless:
I am living…

~ Marie Howe
(excerpt from “What the Living Do”)

the calm

the calm

the calm that comes

after all the decorations are taken down and put away
and life once again returns to normal
it was a wonderful holiday season
and like every year previous
it just flew by
now it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming

the start of 2015 has brought some exciting news
a new client and a published photo (Frog Pond Skaters) on a brand new website
that was just launched today…

 

The Colonnade Hotel

Boston

what I thought was probably going to be the size of a postage stamp is so much more and I couldn’t be more pleased. I have to say how extremely nice the marketing people are there, as I’m sure are all their employees.

So if you are heading to Boston, check them out…and please tell them I sent you!

simple

on a blue book

You’ve been living for this for weeks
without knowing it:
the moment the house empties like a city in August
so completely
it forgets you exist.
Light withdraws slowly
is almost gone before you notice.
In the stillness, everything becomes itself:
the circle of white plates on the kitchen table
the serious chairs that attend them
even the roses on the papered walls
seem to open a little wider.
It looks simple: the glass vase holding
whatever is offered—
cut flowers, or the thought of them—
simple, though not easy
this waiting without hunger in the near dark
for what you may be about to receive.

~ Esther Morgan

one moment

a light breeze

All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.

~ Martha Graham
