Snapshots, and occasional thoughts, from my random life. Mostly about the small New England town that I call home. Water is a prominent theme as we are surrounded by it. I would live no other way...the water part or the random part. Photos and words posted here are my creations except where otherwise indicated.
I’m taking a break from life in Hull this week. One week to explore my favorite place on earth with a “different view”. Different lens anyway. It’s me surrounded by water (as usual), a backpack filled with unfamiliar camera equipment, and no instructions. Follow along and let’s see what happens!
Full disclosure, this is from last weekend. Today it is foggy, overcast, and not particularly warm so I doubt the public beach is this active. This crowd is nothing compared to what it will be in a few weeks when it actually starts to get hot.
“Gardening is the handiest excuse for being a philosopher. Nobody guesses, nobody accuses, nobody knows, but there you are, Plato in the peonies, Socrates force-growing his own hemlock. A man toting a sack of blood manure across his lawn is kin to Atlas letting the world spin easy on his shoulder.” ― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
I love love love my Art Snacks. Like a jelly of the month club for artists…only way more fun! Here is what was in my mail box today. If you are an artist that wants to explore new tools, or just a creative person who wants that monthly motivation to create something, I highly recommend that you visit their site.
I always thought seeing a robin was suppose to be one of the first signs of spring…then I noticed that they seem to hang around trying to survive all winter just like us. Wonder if this robin saw me walking down the street and thought, “oh look the humans are out walking around, the worst must be over!”.
