Saturday, March 24, 2012 catch yourself...

“well, you know when you're rocking in a rocking chair,
 and you go so far that you almost fall over backwards,
but at the last instant you catch yourself?
 that's how I feel all the time”
stephen wright

i have a couple.
of new items.
for sitting on the porch with.
this is a wonderful rocker.
i brought it out during.
our 80 degree temps.
but put it back when rain.
was in the air.
i see many content moments.
ahead for me.
as i rock.
with my coffee.
and just breathe in the day.
for more shadows.
happy 'moment savoring' weekend.
just BE.

Rocking chairs are wonderful things - they bring out the best in us. :) I hope it has a pleasant "creak" to it.

I love rocking chairs and what a great quote from Stephen Wright! Hope you have lots of chances to enjoy, to rock, to breathe every day, Robin!

I have four rockers on my front porch so everyone can have one. :)
I not only like your subtle shadows but the worn patina of the paint as well!
I haven't thought of Stephen Wright in a long while - love him and this quote!

We think of the rocker a a device for a mom to rock the baby gently to sleep. Yet, the grown-ups too need to be soothed by the gentle fore-and-aft rocking motion. On a warm day, the gentle motions are relaxing - but don't rock back too far!

I also love Stephen Wright's quote. I do know how he feels. ;-)

Rocking chairs are wonderful things. I have one inside that I almost never use. Must do better!

Have a fun week seeking shadows!

I remember my grandmother's rocking chair...there was a carpet or some kind of blanket on it.
'those were the days my friend....'
Rocking weekend! :)

LoL* that a butt catcher? Funny enough.

In my language Tagalog, the Philippine language... if you translate chair? Salung-puwit, it means salu- catch-puwit butt... Now, you know...

Happy SSS,

Beautiful sense of intimacy in these gentle shadows and macro of the rocking chair!

Sounds wonderful to have a rocking chair to sit in and watch the world go by. And the shadow of the rungs on the seat are quite attractive.

namaki said...

Lighthousegal said...

Great shadows on the rocker.

I sure miss the days of sitting on the front porch of my parents house in the rocker or gliding bench. We enjoyed many mornings and evenings on that porch and many conversations. Thanks for reminding me of those times!!

Paula Scott said...

Ahhhhh......bliss in such a wonderful chair. I must say, I find myself coveting it quite badly!
