in real life...

in real life...
tall sunflower

...the sunflowers are ten feet tall, maybe twelve.

...you should never go to work for a friend.

...not everything makes sense.

raspberry bug

...when you pick raspberries, you get a lot of bugs too.

...getting a good night's sleep really does help you ward off a cold.

...it's not always about you.

sunny sunflower

...sunshine makes things seem much better.

...you can't fool a horse.

...it's boring to make the child a lunch to take to school every day.

mushroom tart

...making a really brilliant, simple dinner has the capacity to make you feel ridiculously satisfied.

...thus, things are simpler than you make them out to be.

...you will stray from the recipe.

...there won't be any leftovers.

raspberry dessert


...your child will amaze you more than you would ever have imagined. daily.

...rereading a favorite book is a very good thing.

...you'll waste a lot of time, put off doing laundry, avoid cleaning the sink and on occasion let your refrigerator get kinda disgusting.

morning light


...you will feel much better all day if you stop to breathe, look and take a picture of a scene like this. even if it's only taking a picture in your head. *click*

Thanks for making me stop, take a deep breath and look ;)

In real life, all you have is the present moment. Be aware. Don't waste it.

Elizabeth said...

Took a deep breathe and savoured your picture.

Hope your day showed you how to take the next step while you're breathing.

Have a lovely evening.

(my verification word: coclud. You make your own conclusion.)

I want to crawl right into these images and sit a while.

Gaia said...

Back into blogging again! Your blog is always an inspiration your pictures are awesome! Which camera were you using when you took these pics?

Sharon said...

Every word in the post is the truth and we can so easily forget it. Thank you for the reminder and the wonderful photos that let us stop a moment and take a breath.

all very real, very true, very life.

Char said...

all of that and so much more but thing i like best lately is that knowing and being comfortable with 'it's not about me'

This is good! I have a feeling your child will thank you for being an awesome mother... Sometimes not cleaning the sink and instead taking time for yourself are important prerequisites!

Cheers,
poet

Your images are most delightful. The sunflowers warm my heart while the raspberries are most titillating.

Reading this post gave me the opportunity to sort out a horrible day. Thank you, thank you. I have been known to drive miles and miles just to see a field of sunflowers. My favorite was in southern France en-route to Rome on a train. If I could have stopped that train I would have. Thanks again for the memories! Your work is stunning.
