It's perspective I guess . . .

"Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music."
- George Carlin

Or perhaps if it appears you are aiming your camera at nothing....waiving it around in the air 
like you just don't care. Only the reality....it couldn't be further from the truth.

{KK re-entry}

Sometimes you may appear insane because they not only can't hear the music, but are unaware
that it sounds like musical chairs. Just when you think you're getting your groove on, the music stops, and comes back on with a different beat.

It makes it quite difficult to keep up with life when it feels like there is so much inconsistency.

Except of course, when a dragonfly tries to slow it way down by hovering right in front of you and you can hear the fluttering of his wings - which is music enough to your ears.

The past few weeks have been busy, incredibly busy.

There was our second annual get together for Focusing on Life in Galveston and all but one were able to make it! I haven't been feeling well for weeks, high pollen counts and trouble breathing. My boy hasn't been able to make it to his scheduled infusions so there was an impromptu appointment to the hospital. There has been bible study and booster club meetings and Friday night lights on the sidelines and editing marathons (although I'm now nearly 3 weeks behind) and one of those was Homecoming. Throw into the mix a lack of sleep and you have a bonafide (and emotional) mess. In fact, I had a meltdown in the infusion room last week...first time ever.

I'm in serious need of a pocket of solitude, and some sleep.

So it's possible that to anyone standing at a distance, not able to hear what I hear . . . I may appear insane. But please know that I've done my best to keep dancing even when I couldn't hear the music.

I'm so hoping that I will be able to get back to this space not only on a regular basis, but filled with the things only stillness can bring.

Have a wonderful day,
Love, Kim

** Oh, and P.S - I have a short read over at Focusing on Life today, as it's my day and I would love for you to join us!

True colors . . .

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you

- Cyndi Lauper "True Colors"

. . .yep that's why I love you, nature,
you can't help but show your true colors

Whether it's the subtle colors of the sunrise,

Or the way the sun shines through butterfly wings.

I love the way your color shines when reflected back into the water,

And that your colors attract butterflies to my garden.

{KK Oh My}

I love how . . . 

"Nature always wears the colors of this spirit" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wishing you a colorful Tuesday...
Love, Kim

These are the days...

These are the days you'll remember.

{You and I}

Never before and never since, I promise, will the whole world be warm as this.
And as you feel it, you'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.
{These are the days - 10,000 Maniacs}

{KK waterfront7_magic}

These are the days, I hope you remember.
I know I will.
Even all its up and downs, I hope these experiences fill your heart.
They do mine.

Things may not always be easy,
you may not feel lucky . . . 
but I hope you know that you are blessed
to still have the opportunity to do what you love,
even when it doesn't play out the way it should.

Yes these are the days I hope you will remember
not for the things that didn't go right,
but for all the little miracles you've been part of.

I love you . . . (the one between 24 and 76)

Mom, and your biggest fan! XO

I'm over at Focusing on Life today, stitching together moments to tell a visual story and would love if you would join me!! :)

September Grass...song-ography edition

"We're so small and the world's so vast"

James Taylor - 'September Grass'

[Yep, it looks different around here, thought it was time for a little change.]

So, this is one of the only three times, I think, that I made it to the sunrise ALL summer!
I know, I can hardly believe it either. I'm hoping to change that, especially before we have
to "fall back" with our clocks. Getting up early this summer seemed to be a real challenge.

"Well the sun's not so hot in the sky today
And you know I can see summertime slipping on away"

All I can say, is that apparently Mr. Sheldon who wrote these lyrics, had not been to
Texas in September because the sun IS still hot in the sky. In fact I had a few red marks on
Sunday from being at the beach to prove it (yes I forgot to apply sunscreen).
It's not slipping away quite yet, but the writing is in the sky.

{KK 1301 in overlay}

 You can sense the change in the light and the lower position of the sun in the sky.
And, that the blanket flower and black-eyed susans are now growing amongst the grass.

P.S. Keep your eyes open, Monarch migration is underway!

Happy Tuesday,
Love, Kim
