...week six of 52 photos project...

“I used to think when I was younger and writing that each idea had a certain shape and when I started to study Greek and I found the word morphe it was for me just the right word for that, unlike the word shape in English which falls a bit short morphe in greek means the sort of plastic contours that an idea has inside you, all your senses when you grasp it the first moment and it always seemed to me that a work should play out that same contour in its form. So I can’t start writing something down til I get a sense of that, that morphe. And then it unfolds, I wouldn’t say naturally, but it unfolds gropingly by keeping only to the contours of that form whatever it is.” 

this week.
week six.
i like to find quotes.
inspirational pieces.
that go along with the theme of my photos.
i rather like this one.

let us remember.
let us give thanks.
for those men and women.
whom have died.
for our freedom.
world peace.
it is a beautiful thought.
we might not get there on a global scale.
but we can make it happen.
a simple act of kindness.
grows like a ripple on a pond.
let their death for freedom.
mean something.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.

...a given visual phenomenon...

"a given visual phenomenon may not be perceived at all unless it is actively looked for."-  Burnham, Hanes, and Bartleson, Color

only the garden tools.
on the table.
the flowers are all huddled.
under a sheet.
against the frost of the past two nights.

i am a big fan of this Sunday's photos...
last Sunday's photos.


God calls you 
to the place where
your deep gladness
and the world's 
deep hunger meet.
~frederick buechner

from the book be

i wrote this down.
while watching the movie.
How Do You Know
We are all just one small adjustment away from making our lives work.
i love that movie.
and the way the writer's wrote their dialogues.
i wrote it down on an envelop.
i texted it to my husband.
and my children.
and i said it to my coworkers.
and to my friends.
and i believe it.
and i just wanted to share it with you.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.

...that each is as it should be...

light fabricates shadow,
shaping illusions and fantasy 
so that they might seem real.
light is not the destination of the soul
but its friendly trickster.
by embracing all light,
all shadow, all illusion, all reality,
we become free to explore,
create and trust not only our path,
but the paths of others-
that each is as it should be.
~amy jalapeno
the opposite side.
of light.
is shadow.
which is silently.
depicted here.
on this.
tulip bud.
join us for the silent,
enjoy your moments.

...the wild joy of spring...

the birds brought seed & flowers
 & bits of brightly colored string & placed them in her hair 
while she slept so that she would remember the wild joy of spring when she finally awoke.

i have used this story before.
came across it again.
while on storypeople's facebook page.
this is in their "about" description.
"We believe the power of stories will bring a new world into being.
 It's the work we do & it's work that matters to us. 
To all of us. Tell your stories.
 Listen to the stories others tell.
 Love & Imagine without limit..."
this makes me smile.
hope it does you too.

“Never forget that once upon a time,
 in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.” 
― Elizabeth Gilbert

the difference.
of how we feel.
and what people.

...week three of 52 photos project...

i promise you not a moment will be lost
 as long as i have heart 
& voice to speak &
 we will walk again together with a thousand others
 & a thousand more & on & on 
until there is no one among us who does not know the truth:
 there is no future without love.

week three.
{street art}
this is my "street".
it is a road.
a country road.
my "town".

this photo is of my daughter.
i took her senior pictures.
three years ago.
she wanted the road.
she wanted the frame.
that's what she got.
this is my contribution.
