polaroid 6/15/13

Today was an adventure. It mainly consisted of excellent conversations and enjoyment of the summer sun. Part of the day involved the use of a lucky $4 Polaroid camera I discovered at Goodwill. 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…

i fell into the future

just another little thing by me, corissa e p; quote and photo are both mine. i enjoy this because i feel it accurately reflects the ghostly way in which we move through time… we never realize how much we are spending and yet we spend idly and actively for love of people, pleasures, and places around us. we, in many…

Writing Today

It feels good to start the new year off writing, that’s for sure. I didn’t think that I would be able to jump back in so quickly, but it’s always that initial hour push that gets me going. I’m glad I started working on A’s story again. He needs to be written; his story is screaming at me from the…

time

photo from bethany at telling gets old time. something to consider. i have had almost none of it lately, with greenbuilding stuff at work and numerous meetings with US green building council people from our local maine chapter… journalism is not easy, especially if you’re anything like me and you throw yourself into it. i feel like i don’t have…

a walk in the park

i took this on sunday when nick&i went for a walk in the park. the sky was gorgeous (it didn’t feel like winter… sad!) and so was the weather, though it was a bit cold. we discovered a really awesome playground we will most likely go back to when it’s too dark for other people to be there. fun! 🙂…
