where i was

it was a windy day and i was there.

photo by the ever-wonderful michael,
photoshop juju by me.


  1. i was wonderin' where you were :)
    i thought of you a million times yesterday. wonderful photoshop juju by the way.

  2. You are here...right where you are supposed to be. xoxo LOVE this photo!!!

  3. Love this!
    It reminds me of a t-shirt idea a friend of mine had @ a decade ago: on the front of the shirt it says: "Give me just one referance point!"
    On the back it says:"You are here."

    That with this picture. :-}

  4. few words
    can say it
    the hand on the hair
    in the wind..

  5. hee hee, oh how i love your sense of humour and your photoshop juju!

  6. good lordy, you're beautiful!

    right here. right now.

  7. xoxo
    you are here....and there....and both places are okay

  8. i love this photo - your stance the processing, etc.
    you are there and you are beautiful.

  9. You are beautiful, as always. But, what I really wanted to say was, I found this for you. I'm sending it with love.

    They say that in the moment of your death, you see your entire life...
    Yes, my first thoughts go to my cat...
    I smile sadly, tenderly, because, seen from death, our close relations with our domestic animals no longer seem to be something minor to be taken for granted, given their every day nature; ten years of a lifetime have crystallized in Leo, and I take the measure of how the ridiculous, superfluous cats who wander through our lives with all the placidity and indifference of an imbecile are in fact the guardians of life's good and joyful moments, and of its happy web...

    from The Elegance of a Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

  10. i was there while you were 'here'. i completely love the note from relyn. she so understands your heart sickness and then offers up living.

  11. No other place to be, really.

    Have you noticed that when you are aware of the present moment that you are in, most times it is the safest place to be? If only we could learn to stay there more often.


come. sit under the emma tree & let's talk. i have cookies . . .
