a collection of treasured magic crystals found a frosty playground

 happy discoveries

we found our way in and out of the corn maze

by following the grandies through the rows and fields

then found hot air balloons

followed their colors

past the moon and the trees

saw their beautiful flight and landing

 all on an afternoon spent among things raised from the earth.

 

“imagination is to love what gas is to the balloon-that which raises it from earth.”

– letitia elizabeth landon

commonplace.

wonder what the deadline on this project is?

so many things out in the world

just waiting to be discovered

one of my favorite things to do is to stumble upon them

share them with my camera and my words

 

“anything that excites me for any reason, i will photograph;

not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.”

-edward weston

that surprising and wonderful moment

when you discover

written by one of your favorite authors

hiding in plain sight

waiting for you to pick it up.

are directly proportional

to the number

and kind of

variables in it.”

dance ’round.

Standard

found the fairy woods and troll hollow
tucked away in the middle of the trees

when your eyes are open

there is always so much to discover.

“we dance round in a ring and suppose,

but the secret sits in the middle and knows.”
