Beetles and Poppies sharing red dresses

treading on unchartered territory
on surfaces with holes too big for your toes
unstoppable and determined
feeling the air from beneath;
streaming through; beckoning; gently pushing your underside
you hang on; applying what you know
a compelling drive that tells you to proceed
to find that new place
where your heart belongs
knowing that at any moment
your wings can carry you away
another unchartered territory
that through experience you have gathered in past moments
gives you a qualification in your soul to succeed.


...this little beetle was on my screen this morning...it was like he posed for this picture...or was he terrified that my prescence could change it's world? All I wanted to do was to capture it's essesence in a frozen moment...and enjoy what it had to offer...in visual splendor...yet it didn't know that...i was the enemy...

It's the little things, tiny experiences, chained and pieced together in this moment that count...yesterday are those memories that have faded...and gone...tommorrow never comes...only touchable on the calendar square next to the one marking todays reference, this moment, it's all that we truly have...cherish it!!!



love my poppies and how the tissue paper thin petals ruffle in the slightest breeze...




...beetles and poppies sharing red dresses...will they be attending maddysen's ball?


We picked up a little knitting machine at a rummage for a quarter. It had no instructions and there was a part missing (we found out when we got home...duh...it was a quarter...lol) but thru trial and error..we figured it out...and she went to town making lonnng evening dresses for barbie..and friends...
This one is for the "Christmas Ball"






Maxx being Maxx....

Can't believe he's already 1 1/2...and Maddy will turn 7 in less than a month.
