an ode to simplicity

a lovely soiree devoted to the simple everyday occurences

like hand stitching
& letter writing,
& trees, especially trees
{their longevity
-their adaptibility/of swaying in the wind
- seasonal growth/changing towards what is needed
- how every leaf is unique even though on one tree there are hundreds of the same type}
running under the sprinkler as a child
bobby pins, the secret of upswept hair
Christina's sentiment for Haiti
& a giveaway...

tiny thistles growing in the garden
& a card about becoming{it reads,
"that wisdom which comes from being counted worthy of receiving"
...'extraordinary life'!}
& pinkest of roses

Wishing you all a simply beautiful day!!!

stairwells & rosebuds

looking around the countries across this earth{the immediate need in Haiti, the continuing need in New Orleans & in Melbourne after the fires, & in every corner & pocket of sadness around the globe}...& the joy that comes from helping & healing, from lifting & seeing the precious needs of another being met through kindness
today is sharing love

~the archways of the extraordinary*

walking under these archways, all the knowledge, wisdom, & acquired intrigue of the ages seems to fill the expanse of the wind & whisper what is profound if you are apt to listen! i wonder upon the unique carvings in each coat of arms, what do they mean? i would love a little booklet that tells the tales of those who made them & what i should glean from the symbols...
today is truly e.x.t.r.a
y! kindest thoughts & possibilities!!!

written on parchment

{a list of dainty things}

heralding a juxtaposition between creamy ceramics & dainty crochet, the heartfilled handiwork of the lovely Kylie-creator of paper boat press, & a soaring ceramic origami bird from have you met miss jones{both found at a little shop on the Hamilton wharf}
because life can be delicate & laced with fragments of beauty that seems to have drifted in from ancient parchments, or glazed with the smoothness that emerges after its placed in the kiln!
Today is a palette of inherited tranquility! & precious thoughts for all of you!!!
