Week 18 - Inspiration: Weight or Mass

"Let me be light as a feather — strong, with purpose, yet light at heart; able to bend, and, tho I might become frayed, able to pull myself together again." - Anita Sams

Heavy as a stone or light as a feather: I love the gravity of the blocks of battered slippers juxtaposed with the ethereal tutu. #2019dogwood52 #dogwood52 #dogwoodweek18

French Friday: Février

« Février commence bien et finit vite. » - Proverbe français

fleurs de février

Happy February! I bet you don’t hear that very often, but I really do love February — 28 crisp, snowy days, punctuated by celebrations of la Chandeleur, Valentine's Day, and my birthday (the exclamation point at the end of this lovely little month). Traditionally, my February posts have featured rosy hues, pretty flowers and pastries, beautiful snowscapes, and new Paris pictures. This year will be more of the same since we leave three weeks from today 💕

Charming Geometries

August 21, 2018 (233/365)

"Flowers construct the most charming geometries: circles like the sun, ovals, cones, curlicues and a variety of triangular eccentricities, which when viewed with the eye of a magnifying glass seem a Lilliputian frieze of psychedelic silhouettes." - Duane Michals

Blush

August 9, 2018 (221/365) "One rose says more than the dozen." - Wendy Craig

Sunrise

July 10, 2018 (191/365)

"What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory. Each day is a wonder." - Oprah Winfrey

Two Birds with One Stone

le vendredi 6 juillet 2018 (187/365) French Friday: « Je vois la vie en rose. » - Edith Piaf 

Week 27 - Vision: Flattery [They say imitation is the highest form; so, past or present; choose your favorite master photographer and imitate their art or technique.] #dogwoodweek27, #dogwood52, #dogwood2018

I love Nichole Robertson's Paris in Color collections, and I had to choose Paris en rose

Milkweed

June 28, 2018 (179/365)

"God is in the details." - Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Bug

June 17, 2018 (168/365)

"Every kid has a bug period... I never grew out of mine." - E. O. Wilson

Layers

June 14, 2018 (165/365)

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers...” - Anaïs Nin

Peonies

June 5, 2018 (156/365)

“This morning the green fists of the peonies are getting ready to break my heart as the sun rises and they open —pools of lace, white and pink..." - Mary Oliver
