The woods in the spring time are very magical for me- little bits of green popping up out of the ground, playful creatures peeking around trees, sleepy, bright green fiddle heads, the sun keeping my exposed skin warm, the tantalizing sea breeze (I love living in a maritime town!) Ravenswood is especially great to go walking through this time of year- a lot of the trails have glimpses and/or full on views of the ocean- and with the view framed so nicely in that bright, vivid green you only get at the beginning of spring, it’s magic. Happy Spring, readers.
One of my favorite things in the world is walking in the rain under an umbrella. I always feel so cozy and charmingly isolated, free to observe and dream and wander.
Seasonal transition, for me, is fantastic. It is a source of excitement, a source of hope and an inspiration for me. I find myself easily distracted but once settled I have ample amounts of ideas for my many creative impulses. What do you love best about seasonal transitions?
You can’t go wrong with the beach and puppies. This was taken a week ago, on my birthday, at Wingearsheek beach. How would you like to spend your birthday?
It’s been pointed out to be way more than once that I find beauty in strange places and this is no exception. I looked beyond the decrepit and see lines, shapes, textures. Always textures. This happens to be right next to a rail line for the MBTA here in Gloucester. I’ve always viewed it from a kayak and this time I trudged through the snow and onto the rocks for an up close look at this beautiful landscape.
I have the Valentines Day fever! Took me by surprise, really. And yet, here I find myself, writing up cards and cutting out hearts, for my two Valentines: Sprocket the dog and my soon to be husband, Chris. Enjoy your day- might I suggest going outside? Especially if you live in a beach town- the waves were gorgeous this morning.
