one of our sons was dazzled by colorful bulbs & lined them up & i followed suit by lining up the photo lense to capture something from this boy who dazzles me.

i love my hands

i was with a new circle of women for a weekend & we were introducing ourselves, by saying our names & stating something special to us. one woman held her hands out for us to see, turning them right side up and down, stating she loves her hands...that they have held her child & beading & creating. this moment took my breath away. here's to the right side of all our beauty!

so fancy & tall

so fancy & tall
you are
in your
black shoes,
red overcoat,
& fur hat
& you are
almost ready
for church
but first,

you gather
oranges & bananas
& push this grocery cart
with weary eyes
that have
grown smaller
with time.

as you walk deeper
into the aisles
of this
store & church & world,
i call upon
orange peels
& banana trees
to touch your eyes
& to
refresh & free you
to be
the fullest
of the tall fruit
that you really are.

dream more

someone has beauty coming out of them in the form of signs...let's see more of these!!

she wanted all things colorful

i was on the phone with my mother. she was telling me about classes she was thinking of taking. she said she noticed one about water and said she would never take that one.. she said she wanted all things colorful. ya see, beauty just comes plunking out of people's mouths.
