this has been such a nice week. sometimes summer can unfortunately be very least compared to the expectations i give myself......i want to go everywhere, do everything, just fill every summer day with tons of exciting and wonderful events and experiences. but i am not very good at planning, so it seems like when something wonderful and enchanting does happen, it just appears and falls into my day.....but with much fallderall and waving of happy arms on my part. i love being with people, going places, doing things. i don't like being lonely, away from excitement. so i really love it when we have fun. this week we had lots going on.....lunch out with friends in a pretty little cafe, visit other friends in their amazing, huge home up on a mountain, visits with other just makes me realize how people are so important in life. we would all be so terribly, terribly lonely without each other!! so i hope you are having a really wonderful summer and spending time with dear friends and family, too!!

would love to hear from you!

                                                  oh the unexplicable joy of childhood!!
summer is so breathtakingly beautiful but so fleeting and marches by so quickly with the youthfulness of a child. i just want to keep it with me for such a long time because it's voice of youth touches my heart and renews my soul. out to the trees, out to the sea, out to find the lost voice of summer. please stay my dearest friend, for you, the days that are long and languid and lovely.....are my favorite time and language. summer, the happiest days of all.

better now......feeling better now. it is disheartening to me to be affected by things in life that are negative. i want so much to just be surrounded by be able to see beautiful flowers everywhere around me, beautiful art, people who are happy and kind to one another.....just all those things that make life worth living to be honest. when i see situations or people that are unhappy, angry or whatever, it is so difficult to deal with that. i try to cheer others up when i am around them, by being kind and thoughtful, but sometimes that is very difficult to do. that is when i find myself just running back so quickly to those things that are comforting to me and bring my heart and my spirit back to a beautiful, calming place. it is like a lovely, quiet garden that heals my soul. these pictures touch my heart. they represent who i am as a person, an artist, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. i can't live without beautiful things, beautiful people and places and beautiful music, art, etc. it is as important to me as the air i breathe. i am so grateful to all of these creative people who share their incredible talents and vision!!
