I didn't mean to post today. I meant to take a dreamy walk in the woods, and I did. It was beautifully quiet, a deep well of silence with small sounds delicately treading the surface--a trilling bird, the tiny crunch of rocks beneath my bare feet, a squirrel scurrying up a tree. The woods are green with only a few small blossoms, but the blossoms were sweet and I wanted to take their pictures, so I went back with a camera. It was the same path but a different walk. I heard a mower, another machine that sounded like a great big vacuum cleaner, children yelling.

"Oh no, the pictures will be ruined" I thought, as if all the noise would blow away the tiny flowers. What really happened was my lousy camera skills couldn't capture what I saw, but here they are anyway.

Have a lovely weekend, and check back Monday for another little angel!


  1. I've been avoiding my computer for the most part these days but I've finally gotten caught up on your blog. It's a good and friendly read.

    ...and if you haven't already, you may want to check out

    1. Thank you. That makes me feel good. You know, you can be pleased with something you've made or written--and then be assailed by the most uncomfortable doubt. It's nice to have someone else say they like it!

      Yeah, I know I should figure out illustration Friday. I'm confused about exactly how to do it because my brain is lazy about figuring stuff like that out, but I am going to read through the site again and nail it down. It can't be that hard......

  2. It was lovely to see your wood and enjoy your photographs. I understand that feeling of not being able to capture it, but you did. Thank you for visiting and glad you liked it. Millyx
