53 project week 17 - set for life

Give me
light on water
a single leaf on a tree
love written for all to see
branches entertwined
sun and shadow
lime green shoots 
white petals against an endless sky
and I will be content
filled up
set for life

the 53 project : week 16 - signs of spring

It's the little details of spring that really touch me, and fill me with hope and anticipation.  Oh, of course we all love those flashy daffodils and tulips and crocuses.  But in the woods and fields here on Cape Cod, you have to look closer to see the subtler beauty.  Get down on your belly.  Lie back and look up to the sky.


Puddles and airplanes, tiny buds and new grass, twin weeds and a sumac grove.... that's spring at this very moment.   Don't blink, or you'll miss it.

the 53 project : week 15 - chihuly

I'm now officially 53, and 15 weeks into my 53-week project.  My mom and I share joint March birthdays, and what better thing to do than treat ourselves to the Chihuly show at the MFA in Boston.  I couldn't stop looking, and taking photos -- each piece was exquisite and light-filled and awe inspiring. 

If you live in the Boston area, or if the show comes to your city, make sure to see it.  The scale and power and delicacy and color and light will knock your socks off.  

Happy April, all!
