Secluded Secrets at Seawall Beach

Maine is an ideal place to live if you enjoy going outdoors, especially in a mild summer climate that rarely rises above 95 degrees. The northernmost state in New England boasts chilly sea breezes and sunny mountaintops covered in bright, thriving foliage and fauna.

It’s That Time of Year

The time of year of for many cups of herbal tea, all day long, to combat the slight chill in our one-bedroom apartment on Parkside. I can’t wait for autumn; I shall take the most delightful pictures to share with you when the leaves have turned. For now, dream of warm scented steam and hot ceramic in your hands. Pull…

Peace at Table Rock

In a single day; I rested my heart on the river, and spurred it up the mountainside; I hid in deep caves and saw the wide open; I saw a mountain range from a bird’s-eye view and strained my neck upward to see its summit; I was grounded on shallow rock beds and paddled through deep, black waters; I climbed…

We went to Pinecone & Chickadee and I found some black and white film. This is one of the photos I took and then scanned. I hope…

My Take on Question 1

As the ever impending election approaches, I have been extremely loathe to say anything in public about it other than, “I’m washing my hands of this crap.” and even then, it’s still important to me and I’m still struggling with the idea of voting on Tuesday. That said, I do want to say what I think of Question 1, and…

Do you ever find that the best moments, the most enjoyable discussions, and the shared laughter in secret talks are the ones you want to keep the closest? I do.

fates

 image by seinong on flickr i’ve been considering a few things lately, but primarily fate and whether or not it is real, or made up in our own minds. the dictionary says that “fate” is something that unavoidably befalls a person. that is, something that will happen to you regardless of what you do, something out of your control. i wonder if this means that rather…
