I also love the life that is in animals and growing things.
That too is something to marvel over.
2. My Family
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful, caring family. And while I often feel like I just need out, I love them. So, so, much.
Just about anything! However, this summer I've mostly stuck with fantasy and poetry. Both of those are the kind of writing I can always fall back to and be at home. Where I understand and feel understood.
Do you know what I mean by that? What kind of writing makes you feel that way?
However, I did just read Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood and that was wonderful. It left me in this great summer in the south sort of mood. Lots of fun.
If this list were in order he would be first. It's not religion. It's a relationship, a dance, a poem, a song. And I owe him everything.
5. The Earth
Oh, the wonder of it! I just LOVE the earth, it's so vast and beautiful, so raw and perfect and imperfect all that the same time.

I watched this movie for the first time Sunday night and I must say I'm in love. It's the only movie where I've cried because something was just so beautiful, the story hadn't even gotten sad yet and I was already tearing up. The words that have been in my head ever since I watched it is just that it was poetry. Perfect poetry.
It's been cool and cloudy all week, which for me has been wonderful, I've been inspired to hand sew most things of late, which has been wonderful! It's calming and I love it so much more than machine sewing. Days have been filled with day dreams, tea, quotes, Road to Avonlea TV series, and letters. I hope you're all doing well and enjoy your summer or winter, which ever you're having.
with tea and small stitches,
PS: Happy Canada Day to all my lovely Canadian friends!
