Passage of Time
If you hold on to the handle , she said it's easier to maintain control. but it's more fun if you just let the wind carry you. -story People
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.  ~Anna Quindlen

i saw an interview with Anna Quindlen many years ago, she talked of how her friends marvelled at her children reading , she simply said , " look at your house, it has to be full of books and  they have to see you  be an avid reader" i had never really been conscious of it before but the very next time i tidied up the living room i realized, even with small children, a huge part of our mess was books.that hasn't changed over the years, every morning as i straighten the living room after everyone has gone for the day, the majority  of the task is piling up the books and magazines and gathering up the cups from the drinks we enjoyed while lost in them.

Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction 
of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, 
blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.  ~Author Unknown

I'm glad you are here ... it makes me realize how beautiful my world is - Goethe

Happy Valentines Day!

i have been missing my 365 project lately , feeling uninspired and longing for an excuse to have my camera in my hands. i am a project oriented person , i need to have deadlines and goals but i don't have the time or desire this year for a complete 365. last night i revisited marta's blog and discovered she was doing a hue and texture project a simple ,weekly SOOC project and thought it was a perfect fit for me right now.
since Valentines day is tomorrow PINK was the perfect place to start.

life for a Mom teens these days involves watching a LOT of Youtube. i am constantly being called to the computer " Mom come look at this" many times it is ridiculous stuff ( two min of your life you will never get back!) , but there are also amazing sights from around the world, talented people, movie trailers, music 
 videos . with Christian ,who is away  at college, it was usually music. he still sends me links on Facebook , 
"check this out" the last couple of times they made me cry, i guess i am really missing him these days.
this morning this was on his Facebook  ,an artist we both love , someone i actually discover, the brother of one of my Flickr friends, hope enjoy.

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you , but he will make a fool of himself too.
