“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


satdy night i was downtown

it is a bad cell phone image of this wonderful night sky, but i liked the way the tree seemed to be holding up the clouds, and i liked the clouds - oh my, yes, indeedy.  there is a fine, fine, cool, fabulous, brisk breeze out there on the streets, a wind with sound and leaves scattering before it, and these saturday night streets are almost deserted here on the not cool edge of the bad side of downtown - i gave thanks for not being hip, and stood in the middle of the street and fired off shots of the night and the wind blew over me and around me and my god, it felt heaven, y'all. 



  1. yay! for cool breezes! and it does look like that tree is holding up the sky, who knows? maybe it is...

  2. lovely image of a brooding sky, even one on a phone :)
    when the breezes start coming down off the mountain here it means they're bringing the rains....we're still waiting, probably another month or so..

  3. Sounds perfect, I love how the tree looks like it's holding up the clouds too.

  4. There is something so cleansing when the wind blows over us and for a few moments it feels so free. We had a wind yesterday that blew my laundry on the line. The laundry dried so quickly and the wind blew over me with giggles of joy.

  5. even with a cell phone, even blissfully un-hip, your eye and your images are ART.


  6. I love that....the way you see the tree holding up the sky. That is such a Debi idea. Full of magic.


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