when you find a perfect circle of ice
in the bottom of a sand pail
and hold it to the winter’s sun
things become crystal clear.
“there is a beauty and clarity that comes from simplicity that we sometimes
do not appreciate in our thirst for intricate solutions.”
-dieter f. uchtdorf

grandie m’s 9th birthday fun
special ops teams, nerf guns, fairy bread, burger bar, headbands, sunglasses and laughs
one powerful team member even offered a great tip
when she warned me:

‘it’s all fun and games ’till someone loses an eye, then it’s just fun you can’t see.”

today we found a beautiful flower that survived
under the snow and ice and rain and arctic temperatures of january.

they express the arbitrariness of the fact and its mystery.”
