Dont have a heart attack

Kale and fingerling potatoes
                                                             Some of my favorite foods
                                                             I just wanted to say "Hello"
                                                             I have missed you all so very much

Happy Labor Day









                                Sonnet XXXIV(you are the daughter of the sea)
                        You are the daughter of the sea, oregano's first cousin.
                                    Swimmer, your body is pure as the water;
                                     cook, your blood is quick as the soil.
                        Everything you do is full of flowers, rich with the earth.

                       Your eyes go out toward the water, and the waves rise;
                         your hands go out to the earth and the seeds swell;
                        you know the deep essence of water and the earth,
                                 conjoined in you like a formula for clay.

                                Naiad: cut your body into turquoise pieces,
                                 they will bloom resurrected in the kitchen.
                              This is how you become everything that lives.

                             And so at last, you sleep, in the circle of my arms
                             that push back the shadows so that you can rest--
                         vegetables, seaweed, herbs: the foam of your dreams
                          by pablo neruda translated by stephen trapscott

my little monkeys
scenes from this summer
kim from jikits left a link for a post called the sweet spot in one of her comments
its a great read especially if you have kids
time goes by so slowly yet so quickly
its so easy to get distracted and frustrated
so i kiss them and hug them as much as i can
and try to have fun
sometimes its not as easy as you would think
thanks kim!!

Salad


Where are you?
Want some?

St. Anns






St. Anns is a small ocean front beach. I love it. My favorite is Victoria but there are no restrooms within walking distance. I adore Laguna beach.

No I havent disappeared completely.
I am still here.
This year has been very hard for me.
Essentially all of my time goes to my children and the succulent business.
I am grateful.
But I have felt backed up and empty creatively and without an internal push.
Since December I have been quite depressed and trying to find ways to dig myself out.
Time.
I think I just needed time.

So with that...
This is where I was this morning and afternoon for about four hours.
It was perfect.
