I love the smell of line-dried laundry. It brings back so many memories. My parents never had a dryer the entire time I lived at home. But I guess I love the convenience of dryers more. In some places, that convenience is a luxury, and so we still have scenes like this.


Wailuka, Hawaii.

My day at the Place of Refuge on the Big Island was rather grey, but it made for some lovely images.

I have a hard time disposing of faded blooms, and apparently, so do the people in The Boathouse Restaurant up in the quaint and wonderful town of Salida. They hold a beauty all their own.

Writing poetry in my head
Bittersweet emotions
Battling depression

The blue moon – one definition of which is having two full moons in one calendar month – happens tonight, and won’t happen again until July 31, 2015.  While I will be somewhere tonight watching the moon, I liked the warm-up show that it provided last night on Broadway near the Gothic Theatre.

Denver, Colorado.

Quote of the day: “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”  ~Buddha

Hay-on-Wye is one of the towns of my dreams, as it is has 1900 residents, at least 30 used bookstores, and a self-proclaimed king.  Spending a summer there would be heavenly.

Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales.

Qu0te of the day: “The truth is that there are a lot of people like you, us, with strange thoughts or dispositions or a past and we try to hide it because we’re afraid that it makes us seem different. We think people won’t accept us or it will turn people off, but that’s a mistake.  I found what makes us unique has brought every person I love into my life and the one’s who walk away just don’t belong and we’re better off without them anyway. Be yourself and stick with the people who love what you’re all about and your life will thank you in many ways.”
~Brigitte Nicole

Daily gratitudes:
Hazelnut coffee creamer
My co-worker Jen’s enthusiasm and attitude

I now know that I do not like purple frosting
Plums from a tree instead of the store

Most days at Cow Wreck Beach are not quite this quiet, but they are quite often this beautiful.

Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Have patience, heart.”  —  Homer

Paths always lead somewhere – through doorways, in circles, or to a turning point.

At Two Suns, we had a few rogue sea oats that served as impediments to our path to the beach.  There was much face-slapping when one of us would walk down the boardwalk and forget to hold them for whoever was following.  As sea oats are protected – and beautiful – we chose to let them have their way.

Topsail Beach, North Carolina.

Quote of the day: “A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to
all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.”  —  Earl Nightingale

Daily gratitudes:
Stuffed animals
Athletic beauty
The girls passing out beautiful cupcakes at 15th and Larimer as a random act of kindness – or a Random Act of Cupcakes

The fires are improving bit by bit, but for those who have lost their homes – 346 in Colorado Springs alone, so far – the pain and loss and immense task of rebuilding is just beginning.  I gave them this rainbow to show them that, yes, there is hope.

Boulder, Colorado.

Quote of the day: ““No single event can awaken within us a stranger whose existence we had never suspected. To live is to be slowly born.”  —  Antoine de Saint-Exupery
