power flower

When Emily moved to Washington, DC last month and left me holding her bloomed-out amaryllis bulb, I didn't dream it would actually flower again so I've hardly given it a thought. Much less water, sunshine or attention. I've been too busy missing her, missing Yates and gnashing my teeth against winter. Until Monday when this gorgeous blossom began to unfurl and, with it, every crabby, clenched muscle in my body. Beginning with the heart.

hy there

Almost walked right by this beauty yesterday. A tiny burst of color amid nature's drab winter palette. Kneeling down close to take a picture, I caught a whiff of spring.

the envelope, please

Lucky me to spend the first part of February first exploring envelopes with some very special people.  The envelope being a metaphor about opening up. Being open. Being aware of messages constantly coming our way that imbue life with meaning. So much love in that room. It felt like a valentine.
