stepped out on the cliff...and walked a mile or so,
a secret path
beckoned us to walk on
so we kindly, quietly, obliged
and what we found there at the end of our trail
we shall never forgetnot ever over time...
for, that is, my fine feathered friends,
what family, love, adventures and time well spent bring to us...
filling the heart, nourishing the soul. have a delightful evening.

paved in old wood planks
still, calm, welcoming me on
i knew not where it led
reaching an opening
the wind whirled like mad out of nowhere
it came whispering secrets and tales of long ago
around another curve i found a graveyard of lost souls
softly they spoke
of long journey's at sea
their beauty washed ashore...
to bask in the sun

view of my table while camping
when i was a little girl, my grandmother would visit for 5 weeks every year, to get out of the cold of canada and bask in the warmth of california sun, bake scones & cheese biscuits (of which were the best i have ever had), tell stories and teach me to knit...we would sit out under a tree in our front yard and she showed me the basics of purling, casting on etc...i knitted alongside of her as she would chat and tell stories, while once in a while glancing down at her work, and all the while i was lulled by the gentle, calming, tapping of her needles...she made wonderful sweaters and vests for me, my mum and my sister, and i would bury my face in the smell of the wool and her soft scent woven into the fibers. she had come to canada from the 'old country' ireland where her mother and her mothers mother had all knitted.
knitting took a back burner as i grew and moved into different interests, however, when i was pregnant with my daughter almost 9 years ago, i picked up some bamboo needles and began again to knit.
i am no expert, and i do need to learn more, however, i am teaching my daughter to knit too and hope that she takes to it as i did...and we can knit and purl our bond even tighter, as my grandmother did with me.

inspiration and thoughts fly, for it is truly from nature that we must connect; feel the wind, the sand, the earth, the fog, trees, rocks, shells, ourselves...everything...
have a lovely divine tuesday you fine folk.
