saturday shopping list - may 29th

"summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.  a few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world."   ~  ada louise huxtable

hmmm, is this really the first post since last saturday's shopping list?  i must have drifted into summer vacation mode, sparing little thought for anything but gardening and lemonade (and some work on custom orders mixed in)

oh, and i did create a new treasury... does that count as being productive?  i think i'll count it.

'that one day'

happy saturday

'the morrow leads to milky way'...

{ click on the links below the captures to see these lovelies on flickr, and to see more work from each inspiring photographer }

'the morrow leads to milky way'

soft light, i fly into your haze.  the golden dust of yesterday

the now is pleasing to my taste.  the morrow leads to milky way

so, as a soul begins the waltz,  a proffered dance by journey's hand,

the molecules are all abandon, a fragile cadence 'tween bird and land

as on the solar circle path, the stars foretold this love and war,

we tread on deja-vu of faith.  the sea gives back unto the shore

the children's eyes reflect this lore, 

a skipping record, played once more

well, today was supposed to be saturday shopping list day... would make sense as it is saturday... but i didn't get my act together, and the list will have to wait until tomorrow (and, yes, i suppose that would technically be a sunday shopping list).  spent the day with family watching a soccer game, visiting the farmer's market, and eating good food...

tonight i'm spending time with a couple of my dearest old friends... a good book and relaxing music ;)
so, i thought i'd share a little of what i'm listening to as i cozy down on the couch

happy saturday!

pretty printed world...

"a cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed... it feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now.  but the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all the clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons."   ~  richard bach

'willow wind'...

'willow wind'

carry my calm with your willowy sway, bough bent in perfect arc.  a ballerina's tip toed reach into floor... middle pulled up by angel's breath...

that breath. oh, your sweet breath pours through the organ, holding me captive by your temptress hand.  drawn out as the subtle sweeping, always eluding, rolls 'round my back.  a lover's whispered caress.  wisps of hair tossed in a floating, teasing dance of fingers and will... one moment ahead, anticipation of my instinctual move.  that huff of exasperation, exhaled from my lips as i reach with that hopeless, eternal struggle to grasp a presence which lives outside the limitations of my silly, mortal need to control.  

oh, and here, the petal, enchanted by your singular magic, fluttering past my captivated eyes.  little bird's song magnified by your waves.  leaves and twigs and hollowed trunk, joining in a neighbor's applause, in appreciation of the show... a domino wave falling 'round the world.  and, i'll clap my hands with you, to endeavor for your concerto harmony.  until my arm's fly out as if i lived inside that little bird's feathers.  

please, carry me up with you.  i want to soar, my middle tumbling to the earth below.  we try so hard, little bird.  how you must laugh at our feeble attempts to attain your simplistic grandeur.  are you flattered by our imitation?  our mocking struggle to prove

alway's one step behind, just a second too late.  moment's wasted in our inability to still and the endless caper of searching.  all in a world who's dance card has filled up by those more majestic on their toes.  

you know this, wind.  you tease with your knowledge and play on our universal ego

  until there is release, we'll never fly by your hands
