new hue

is there anything better than a day when your eyes open up to something new? no, not to a destination where you’ve never been but, instead, to that inside place you’ve always known. after carrying it around all these years, you thought you had it tapped. you’ve held it up and inspected it from all sides, in the the light of every hour of every kind of day, and surely you had it all figured out: its arithmetic, its punctuation, its hues within the color wheel.

but then, just like that that … that old familiar thing gets flipped, and suddenly it’s not at all the shameful, scary thing you thought it was. in fact, it’s totally brand new.

and then holy hell, so are you.

this spring thing

oh busy life, you are so sweet.

(a litte late but) was thrilled shari invited me to contribute my spring manifesto to her blog (xo to you, s!). got me so in the mood for this spring thing. also, so honored to have four of my Instagram shots included the current issue of Lusikka. thanks for including my photos, hitoshi! what a gorgeous, gorgeous web magazine. you must check it out.

seeking stillness, quiet and peace but not getting much of any of it. my 91-year-old grandpa just said to me on the phone tonight, “it’ll settle down again one of these days.” he’s lived a long and rich and busy life so he knows a thing or two.
