These Moments Thursday
Remember when the adults let you stay up WAY past your bedtime? You could even say it felt like you were allowed to stay up all night! This was taken handheld in extremely low light, hence the slide to pull out every bit of light that could be pulled out with some serious noise reduction thrown in.
i am humbled and honored and want to curl up in the sunshine at the base of my lover’s feet because it’s too good. the light and dark. it makes me feel like a baby without a mother who is being cared for by the entire world.
i’m full of love and awe.
and the beauty of it?i’ve only just been born.
Every so often you have a moment where you are so perfectly aligned… between what you love to do and what you are doing… that you just have to stop and celebrate it.
we collect feathers on our walks, the big ones i put in a vase and tiny one i place here.
My friend Susan is a doer. For the second time in 3 years she completed the 60-mile breast cancer walk, this time in San Francisco. The walk takes place over 3 days with participants walking 20 miles per day. This is not something you just do, you have to train for it over many weeks and many miles. As a reward for her dedication Susan treated herself to a trip to Boston. Susan lives in Nashville (where we met), she flew to San Francisco for the walk then on to Boston where I met her and we fulfilled a dream of hers, a Red Sox v. Yankees game at Fenway park. We arrived early which is a first for me and were able to catch the Yankees batting practice. Susan is a great person, I love her dearly, but she has one giant flaw, she’s a Yankees fan. The Red Sox and Yankees have a tremendous rivalry (duh) and Susan can trash talk like a New Yorker. Sometimes our friendship can be under a bit of tension since we are both serious fans. Too bad for her the Yankees lost to the lousy Red Sox who can’t even beat their own farm team this year. It was so very good to see her and I was honored to be included in her bucket list.
a bit grainy (& straight out of the box) but i had no tripod with me and i fell for the colors…
