Sunday
There is something mightily beautiful sometimes of flowers that have seen their day.  Roses, peonies and dahlias come to mind especially.  as their beauty turns yet another leaf. I hope I can parallel my life this way.

More Like Ourselves
I've shifted into a slower lane. It feels like I've cut the engine a bit more. Aside from doing something like taking a long trek into the woods or knitting, I have to say that being on the computer is a very relaxing thing for me. It's like reading a book ...

My mama has been doing a little painting. It's something that she has dabbled in over the years and always delights me to see. Especially now that she has chronic macular degeneration and is in her 90's. We begin life as such sensuous little beings, explori...

Sander's Beach, Bahamas I realize that my intention as I grow older is to have as much fun as I
can. Many times this means being alone unfortunately. I guess this is

If Kisses Were Snowflakes
Click on collage to enlarge Welcome to my favorite day. What could be better than love and chocolate and flowers? Not much I must say. Happy Valentine's Day from my home to yours. xo, Louise
For many years I've had a vision of how I want to be when I grow old and I've looked forward to this time in my life. I'm even a little exc... Aloneness. The White Mountains I awoke on Saturday morning to a day to myself. I don't think I have had a day like this for over 21 years.

The List of Honesty

I've been feeling out of sorts lately with not enough down time or time to be creative. Feeling like I am kind of on a treadmill and putting out too many little fires. Not a lot of substance. I imagine you know what I mean. It's felt kind of like the holiday hustle but it's April... Geesh.

I've felt kind of like a bulldozer lately pushing through several projects. It's never good when everything seems kind of like an emergency, when it isn't. I leave you with this quote this week because it's oh so true. xo

Gosh it's so nice to have a relatively unplanned weekend at home. As nice as it is sometimes to have a full one. Last week our eldest graduated from college and two days before that our youngest went off to a semester abroad in South Africa to study humans rights and social change.
