“i believe that one defines oneself by reinvention.
to not be like your parents.
to not be like your friends.
to be yourself.
to cut yourself out of stone.’

“I made this thank you note. I’m going to give it to my family.”
“what are you thanking them for?”
“I’m going to thank them for being my family.”
“if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”
*Eckhart von Hochheim (c. 1260 – c. 1328), commonly known as Meister Eckhart, was a German theologian, philosopher, and mystic.
and here we go, marching straight into the corn.
“the future is an ever-shifting maze of possibilities until it becomes the present.”
at nixon farms, dexter, mi, usa – october 2019
after a fun afternoon
and wonderful evening
spent visiting and playing
grandies are tired and tucked in
when suddenly the tears come
missing mom and dad
a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom
everyone settles in for the night
does it get any better than that?
“very little is needed to make a happy life.”
Magnus, Felix, Brooklyn, Valentina, Jackson, and Raffaella
a shoutout to all of my highly-spirited grandies
one of the rare photos
from a few years back
of all sitting still in one place at one time
happy grandparents day to all
with much love from peaches
thanks for reminding me what’s important each and every day.
“children make your life important.”
hung out with four of the six-pack tonight
creating with clay
home spa nail painting
hide and seek
a TV movie
rounding up the cats
building a giant sleep nest
no one is at all tired yet
the perfect time to bake brownies
and eat them as a late night snack
with some ice cream on top
their parents will never know.
“if we’re not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?”
