“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


i spell that c-o-m-f-o-r-t-i-n-g

i like the way the blossoms fall into the broken places & cracks.
i spell that h-o-p-e.
i spell it r-e-a-s-s-u-r-a-n-c-e.
i spell it t-h-a-n-k-y-o-u and e-x-h-a-l-e.



  1. The cracks
    in life's veneer
    are for catching
    the good stuff.

  2. as leonard cohen says, 'there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in'.

    you see it, too.

    of course you do.

    you have rare and sterling insight.


  3. beautiful words as always..
    you have a unique way of saying things right.
    And tonite I want to sabotage myself again and delete my blogs.
    This time if i do, i won't return.
    it will be enough.
    I'm just kinda tired of it all.
    that's the best thing I do...
    cut myself down & sabotage me.

  4. Thanks for reminding me to look down and see the beauty lying at my feet.

  5. i spell that t-h-a-n-k y-o-u for sharing this simple beauty with us.....

  6. the cracks leave a place for the beauty to fill - yes that's hope

  7. everytime I visit you here I am totally blown away by your imagination in your photography and your words. Hope definitely comes from broken places. Thanks!

  8. you see things others don't see. others don't look. like the other readers of your words, i smile, i thank you.
    in fond regard, Tilda

  9. I love the play of shadows and light, the shades of grey with the hot pink and purple and that spot of lime green up at the top left. Makes my heart so happy!
