evening


evening stroll


it was an open window day...
all day, the humidity was lower
and the breezes cooling


evening stroll


in the evening,
I strolled the beach,
along with the shorebirds

and waited for the sun disappear

she makes sure
I get my walk
everyday

tonight,
we took an extra one

she lets me know
in her adorable way,
she sits and stares
at me

and if I do not pay attention
she talks

I was sitting on a bench
when I noticed my shadow
and her head turned just so

life on the jetty

whenever we need a change of pace
a short walk to the jetty
provides something new
every time

a perfect ending
to a long day of work

a stroll to the jetty
to feel the breeze

and a happy baby
in my photo stream

three months today,
incredible!

powerless


118::365
photoaday 118::365

the morning was dark,
cloudy, almost cool
but for the humidity

the rains started mid-morning,
at first a gentle rain,
but the wind took over...

knocking out our power,
right in the middle of an edit
I had lost the night before

and a reminder of how much
of my life is online,
I tackled a pile of paper

then called across town
to see if they had power,
and just as I packed up

the lights and motors
came back to life...

perfect timing

mornings and words


115::365
115::365


for the last week,
after our morning walk
(karma and I)

I fix my usual breakfast,
coffee, muesli with fruit and kefir

but instead of picking up
my phone to check in with the world,
I have been reading (and holding an actual book in my hands)

last week, I reread a Gift from the Sea,
a longtime favorite, so full of wisdom

this week, it's Aimless Love,
Billy Collins' newest poetry collection

old favorites,
like The Lanyard
and new ones to contemplate

sometimes his words can surprise,
a phrase from this morning
stayed with me all day

treacherous halls of high school,
not just halls, but treacherous

late night


late night


it's that time again
in my work schedule
when I have a deadline

which means I am
working late and
taking night photos

wind and waves


wind and waves


a glorious cloudy day,
it is so warm that clouds
are quite welcome


111::365


so we were
at the beach
earlier in the day...

pounding waves
playful dolphins
strong winds

invigorating
all of our senses
in the most pleasurable way


wind and waves



lots of humidity,
but still no rain,
which we do need


wind and waves

no rain


110::365


we had this,
but no rain

...

two little videos
popped up in the baby photostream today

those just make my day,
when I can hear and see him

talking and moving
and smiling at his mama

...


and when I walked out
on the blustery jetty

this little snowy
was showing off for me


snowy egret

it felt like rain


109::365
109::365


it looked like rain
it felt like rain

as I walked the south jetty, I overheard
I can't believe it's not raining

the air was damp,
the breeze cooling

but even as we sat on our deck later
only a few drops came


the south jetty

a piece of saint paul


107::365

enjoying our bits of saint paul
that have joined us at the jetty...

this favorite lamp
did not seem to work at first

but it looked splendid
tonight looking in through the window

we continue to be a work in progress,
but I guess that is what life is

night!

bliss


104::365
104::365


another evening on the new beach...
watching the sunset,
feeling the cool breeze
coming across the water

letting go of the day,
work, phone calls, assignments
it all dissipates
as the sun meets the horizon

evening


beach


on the beach,
feet in the warm sand,
breeze blowing my dress...

my guy with his gecko glass,
we sit and watch the sky
and muse on a good day...

a few steps from our door


101::365

dusk


dusk


just a few steps...
there is always a new boat at the docks,
this one from San Francisco!

people coming and going
to the jetty for the sunset
or the Crow's Nest for dinner

or sitting,
contemplating,
fishing, or chatting

sister time


100::365
100::365


my sister
and her husband
joined us at the jetty
this afternoon

we sat on the benches
that line the jetty,
watching the boats
coming and going

and the many birds
that our mom
taught us to recognize
and observe...

lovely sister time
that we have missed
these many years filled
with families and work

now life is slower...
we can reconnect,
share stories,
and sit together in the late afternoon
