temporal tipping points...

Time isn't a straight line. It's all... bumpy-wumpy. There's loads of boring stuff. Like Sundays and Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons. But now and then there are Saturdays. Big temporal tipping points when anything's possible.

some weeks simply feel like they drudge by, tangled with prosaic happenstances, scattered with a few tuesday afternoons that somehow slip into my sadly abandoned journal. and then there are sunday mornings ironically blithesome with clouds swelling with rain. and afternoons that are set aside to gather for american traditions.
and suddenly, you run into the wild wind, crisply exhilarating and breath-taking - as it should be in wintertime - bravely chasing a three year old on a trampoline with a camera, and for once, eagerly savoring the world under your cold finger tips. 
postscript // thank you for the response on my latest post! I've been experimenting with manual settings, and although, i still don't know what i'm doing, i'm loving it thus far. *wink* 


  1. These photos are so sweet! And of course that quote is so true and goes so perfectly with what you wrote. And you are certainly not the only one who has sadly neglected your journal. *guilty smile*

    Oh, and I received your perfectly splendid package the other day! We are supposed to get a bunch of snow on Wednesday, so I am hoping for a snow day so that I can curl up with some of the Rory tea and watch some wonderful BBC shows.


  2. Every photograph here tells a story. Beautiful, quiet, whimsical, brave. And frankly, I don't want to stop "reading" them.

  3. I love that quote! Doesn't The Doctor have the absolute best quotes ever!? This whole post is beautiful, dear.

  4. every single one of these is a story all it's own. these are fantastic, darling. the windblown hair, the quiet, nostalgic edits, and the adorable face and whispy blond hair. i love this, so much.

    but not as much as i love you, m'dear MH.

  5. these capture simple innocent joy so so beautifully. the motion, the colors, the life.
    you are so talented, my dear.

  6. Why are your pictures so beautiful and your words so lovely!? <3

  7. Dear Grace,

    Your writing always blows me away! Each and every post, no matter what it's about, is so beautiful, full of cadence and poetry. It's so refreshing to be able to come and bathe in good writing.

    And your pictures... They are so beautiful and wrought with emotion. I love the second picture!

    Thank you for the inspiration.
