common hours.....

•"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." - 18. Conclusion, Walden, Henry David Thoreau

~ more reading of Walden, it's a slow read...but i absolutely love it, it helps me connect to the world inside the world...if that makes any sense........... three sisters photo shoot on Sunday, the girls and i had so much fun!!

spring...chapter 17...Walden....Henry David Thoreau

{A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener. So our prospects brighten on the influx of better thoughts. We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us, like the grass which confesses the influence of the slightest dew that falls on it; and did not spend our time in atoning for the neglect of past opportunities}

...a sweet happy my wise and wonderful mother...
for teaching me about nature and it's gifts...

"if you are going to be an artist- even a photographer-
i think you have to major in fantasy."
