Ah I'm sitting here this morning, the first time in a long time quietly. The sky is cloudy. It rained last night and I'm beginning to get glimmerings of Autumn, one of my favorite seasons.
In a moment I'll go and make myself a cup of coffee, one of my favorite beverages. There is something almost sacred in the corners of my day that I assign a latte to. It's never slugging down a cup of coffee for the sake of it, just sitting outside, or at my table by the window, taking a pause in my day to just savor the little beans.
This week in my iphonegraphy course we were to look up close. The first thing I found was to go with my cup of coffee. Is there nothing better than chocolate cake? This one was a beauty and shared with my dear friend Susie whilst we were traveling to Birmingham Alabaman on a short promotional tour.
I loved this little bee and was amazed at how close I could got.
I decided to put this little fellow into a collage and tell share the love of my dahlias with you. This dahlia was bred by my father and I think of him every time this goes into bloom throughout the summer. My husband gave me the stepping stone several years ago for my birthday. It's a lovely little corner in my paradise garden and reminds me of two of the men in my life who love me dearly.
A summer afternoon found me casting glass stones playing a Japanese children's game with a little visiting friend. I loved the way my iphone caught the light.
And finally I caught a wave not on a board but on my camera. This is a very special place to me and my family. We've been walking this beach on the Baltic Sea for hundreds of years. I always wonder which previous family members walked here before me and what were they thinking? What was their lives like and has much changed throughout all of this time?
