mine are often as I choose . usually simple & common


blue thread on an old wooden spool . unique cloth . light summer wine


string left long and able to flutter .. just because it will . friday moments

I love the wooden spool of blue
and the fluttery strings
and always the tender heart
that is yours
...I see
and welcome
and wonder over
the beauty that is you:)
(thanks for the abundant share!)

Elk, your photos and art are always a visual treat! Enjoy the links, too :)

What a beautiful post to read whilst I sip my morning cuppa, on Friday, my Leslie-is-in-the-Studio day.
I enjoyed the links - the Friday field trip. Thank you for including me.

And I *love* your header image. Simple, earthy, clam - visual quietude.

Happy weekend to you dear ELK.

one of my greatest joyous discoveries in the blog world is visiting your place here, dear elaine. your vision, your creativity, your humility, blow me away. (and thank you, for commenting on my photos... how much that means, coming from you)

"what will be your joyous discovery on this day ?" I love that! It reminds me of one of my favorite lines of all time from the poet Mary Oliver: "Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

Well, I discovered the other blogs you linked...fascinating. I discovered that you can have a reprieve from the humidity during AZ's monsoon season so that the mornings and evenings feel like fall again. And I discovered your joyous bird. So far.
