take this poem
petals velvet, simple
face up to the sun
curved to hold rain--
look in, all's clear--
wheel of lacy yellow dust
the green exclamations.

-Mary Dalton

special treats

Every so often we give Daisy and Indiana special treats. Indiana's favorite is Science Diet canned food, and Daisy's is a Busy Bone. Now I must admit that the Busy Bone treat is especially enjoyable to us as well...because Daisy seems to get it all over her little whiskers!! I was laughing so hard while trying to capture this shot, and as you can see, she is saying, "What, Mom?" ;o}

it's all a blur

"this is a yo-yo that teaches everything there is to know about life, but it spins so fast it's all a blur & it takes a long time to figure out that that's exactly what it's trying to teach you." -Story People

northern sky

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea

I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree

But now you’re here
Brighten my northern sky...

{lyrics by Nick Drake}

happy camper

A few things I did this weekend:
  • Told ghost stories by the campfire.
  • Searched for the perfect skipping stone.
  • Hiked until my legs couldn't hike any longer.
  • Saw the reflection of Jupiter on Lake Superior, and counted constellations.
  • Wore long undies and a winter cap to bed.
  • Listened to the sound of a brief rain, pitter-pattering on the outside of our tent.
  • Watched the sun set over the lake.
  • Watched the sun rise over the lake.
  • Caught the smell of campfire faintly lingering on my clothes.
Many more pictures to come... ;o)

breaking through

“What you really want for yourself is always trying to break through, just as a cooling breeze flows through an open window on a hot day. Your part is to open the windows of your mind.” -Vernon Howard

postcard time @ lunalux

Every several months J. sends out a pretty postcard {letterpressed, natch} to everyone on the Lunalux mailing list. While we were labeling/stamping each card today, we wondered...why can't postcard stamps cost half the amount of regular stamps, making the extras easier to use on regular mail? Mr. Postman, if you're reading this, please let us know. ;oP

daisy time

"See, the grass is full of stars,
Fallen in their brightness;
Hearts they have of shining gold,
Rays of shining whiteness..."
