I was sick this weekend. My body truly has awful timing. There is so much I have to do for school this term and on top of that I need to find a job. I feel like I'm getting lost in it all. Or maybe I'm just lost to begin with. I just need the time it takes to figure things out... but I don't have that. And I don't get to find it anywhere. Finally, goats in trees... entertaining - thank you internet.

1 Year




In the park



Mountain Blooms




Old Flowers




first signs of spring

One year ago, I started this blog with murky ideas behind what I wanted it to be about. While I'm still a bit murky about what exactly this blog is supposed to be about, I have enjoyed the past year. I have ideas about what I would like to do with this space in the future. I would really like to be able to sell prints of my photos eventually. But that's something that takes time to get started, which is something I don't have all that much of right now with school going on. Hopefully though I'll be able to find some time. We'll have to see what the next year brings.

Looking Up



Lately, I've been wishing summer was here already, I just want to be able to wear shorts and dresses and sandals. I also finally got around to scanning the last of my giant pile of old film photos tonight (ok, some of these are from this last summer too). I have specific scents tied to certain seasons in certain areas. In the valley during the summer it smells like moist earth and flowers and sunshine. But in Bend during the summer, it smells like rivers and lakes and pine needles. Oh, and waffle cones, summer smells like waffle cones. (or rather, I have smelt like waffle cones for the past three summers)

In my mind...

When I daydream, this is where my mind wanders to...


A place where I live in a house like this...

 on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Or this...

Es Vedra - The Mystic Rock

That is near the ocean...

 on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Or maybe a lake...

Has windows like this...

Is in a forest like this...

Or this...

Mueller Trail sunset

Or even this.

Canoeing on the Charles River Audubon Society Reservation at Natick 05/1973

That is most definitely near a river I can canoe on and go swimming in...


And near adorable curiosity shops.

Of course there are lots of other little things that my head wanders through that I can't show you... mostly because there aren't pictures of them, at least not that I'm aware of. 

Click on the photos to see where they're from.

I cannot believe how amazing this photo is. It's my definition of summer... after today's weather, I know summer is on its way, but oh, strawberries... when will you return? 

found here.


In the Greenhouse




The Tub




I spent last weekend with my dad, and some parts of his property out in the middle of nowhere are truly magical... as evidenced above. I took these at twilight, with the last of the light for the day, I wish there had been more light so I could show you more of his place.

Marsh's Free Museum

A week ago I went to the Coast and on Saturday we drove up to Long Beach, Washington. To play laser tag and visit Marsh's Free Museum. I had never been and I have to say, I was quite fascinated. It's one of those places that was called a museum in the early 20th century but is really just a building full of random curiosities from around the world. Most notably, Jake (see the last photo).

I actually watched a documentary about how they make shrunken heads once.

I have this thing about antlers... I think they're slightly amazing.

I am oh so glad I never had to make sodas with something like this.

A friendly Polar Bear, I think he looks like he wants to hug you goodbye. (This is over the door)

This sounds like the kind of political slogan I would come up with... probably why I'm not in politics...

And, finally, the reason we went to the Marsh's in the first place... Jake, the Alligator-Man.

Looking Down

This weekend had quite a few surprises behind it (both bad and good). I'll tell you all about it with lots more pictures later when I have less schoolwork to get done. I got new shoes... again... I really love the light at twilight (I feel so dirty using that word now... thanks a lot Stephanie Meyer).

I received a free Pictoral Webster's poster in the mail. I'm in love with the illustration... how did they randomly send me such an appropriate one? I also made a really boring cardboard box a little prettier with some origami paper and a paper bag. Nothing all that exciting just little things that excite me. I have to admit that right now I am a little to excited for a study project I'm working on... I'm making a wall of human skeletal anatomy! I know... not many people find this all that exciting (it makes me want to jump up and down with excitement), in fact some might even say it's creepy. I doubt anyone will really know what they are though, I really can't draw well. I mean when an art teacher tells you you can't draw, you know you really can't draw.
