~rainbow mondays~ pink is in

pink: a little shy on red this time of year, but i will supplement with some pink! took rich out on a sunshine-filled beach date after my farmer’s market job on saturday. lucky for me, it was low tide, and i got to snap some tidepool pictures, including bright pink sea anemones. . . . → Read More: ~rainbow mondays~ pink is in

~rainbow mondays~ sunsets galore

took me a few weeks to accumulate this rainbow… kicking off with some rainbow sunset reflection magic.

wet sand rainbows, reflecting rainbow plexiglass wind screens on hotels perched on the cliff, reflecting the sunset.

red: roses are red for valentine’s day… in leaf anyway.

 

orange: lately i am taking my camera . . . → Read More: ~rainbow mondays~ sunsets galore

simmering a rew part 4 ~ salt and pepper to taste

simmering a rew part 3 ~ stir in wild ingredients

<3 <3 <3

the demise of summer/fall seems to be what prompts me to traditionally pull some cards from the two decks full of magic and bioluminescence that i keep on hand for inspiration and affirmation, and once again i pulled some for my . . . → Read More: simmering a rew part 2 ~ heat thoroughly

simmering a rew part 1 ~ soup starter

sifting through post drafts, i decided to simmer a bunch of separate ingredients in one soup pot, hoping they will complement one anothers’ flavors. one is too tangy alone, one is much too sappy, and still another one has an overpowering kick. it’ll either turn into a pleasingly balanced, wholesome chowder of words, or it . . . → Read More: simmering a rew part 1 ~ soup starter

~a month in the life of a lifelong learner~ screens as tools

one of this month’s learning highlights was following the world series. we took a special interest this year, as grammy’s team was in the series, and quinn had recent, fond memories of sitting on the porch with grammy and grampy and watching mets games. we had a lot of fun, even though they . . . → Read More: ~a month in the life of a lifelong learner~ screens as tools

~rainbow mondays~ celestial bodies
