Si n c er e l y , L ou : Rain+Tunes

Just a rainy July night . Cozy , in fact . One of those nights that , though we initially had plans to go out + hear some music at a local place , now I am actually quite thrilled for a cozy , rainy night in . We will see what comes . Nonetheless , I am in my kitchen , cooking up a storm { which never happens } + listening to the soothing sounds of Priscilla , The Frames , Kate + Kathryn with squash + apples + cinnamon + ginger + chicken all around me + the sweet smells of it all filling our home .  Moments like this - just living - tend to not always be as noticed + appreciated as they should be . But tonight , I know + I love . Just one little flame in my "flicker" as Kathryn Williams may put it . 
This rising musician once said : In years to come , I'll look back at the records I ' ve made + not have any regrets about a man in a suit making me fit in with fashion . They're small , sketchy pieces . I 'm not trying to make Big Art . 
Big Art or not , Kathryn has a knack for singing + for the art she does for her albums . Love them both . Just look . . . 
And listen . . . 
And read . . . 
I watch you wait / At the bus stop with one eye / On your watch / You turn + say
To strangers there ' s not enough time / For one man in one life / Just a flicker + then a breeze
Breeze , Breeze
But you sit there for hours / Watching programmes you don ' t / Plan to watch they just come on / And if you had one chance to change / Would you review your plans ?
'Cause there ' s not enough time / For one man in one life / Just a flicker + then a breeze 
Breeze , Breeze
I keep my time / Saved in a box / From going fast in cars 
I ' ve piled it high / From saying hello to friends / With a quick goodbye
'Cause there ' s not enough time / For one man in one life / Just a flicker + then a breeze 
Breeze , Breeze
'Cause there ' s not enough time / For one man in one life / 
Just a flicker 
And a breeze 
Breeze , Breeze , Breeze , Breeze , Breeze 
And love .

Wh im s y We ek e nd: A Gi f t

Once upon a time there was a girl who was in love with a boy . And this boy ' s parents were quite lovely as well . So lovely , in fact , that they took a vacation + made a little road trip fromtotoand all of the way to to spend time with this boy + this girl + also , to deliver to the boy + the girl the Jetta that they drove . It was quite a gift for the boy + the girl to partake , but it was a perfect blessing after recently losing a car to the junkyard .  And so the boy + the girl + the mom + the dad talked + played + enjoyed a couple lovely days in the lovely company of one another . Games of Racko + grilling + home family videos + eating several delicious burgers + cookies + bowls of ice cream . And in this time spent together , the boy + the girl both knew that they had been completely + utterly blessed with the most splendid + loving family the world could give . And even when the parents flew away back home the boy + the girl could smile at the sweet blessing it was to see them + be blessed by them . The End .

= my latest favorite place to be + see . 
I know I have a certain place in my heart for fabulous calendars + I know I have mentioned the Curiosity Group 's calendar club previously , even with a lovely link to the July edition , but here it is once more for you marvelous readers to snatch up before this very July is over ! {Gasp ! I cannot believe I just admitted to that } 
Follow H E R E to get your very own + your own in months to come , but follow BE L O W to see just how easy . peasy this project is . If I could , I surely would print off copies of this beauty to send to every single person I know . Because it is T H AT whimsy . And easy . Take a look . I made mine today + yesterday a couple kiddies I was watching + I made it a summer afternoon project . Give it a go . . . 
Simply cut where it says cut + fold where it says fold + glue where it has a picture of glue . And after a few minutes of crafty wonder , you will proudly be staring your July campsite wishing you could live in this little Winnebago world . And your Winnebago world may just look like mine :
And just before you run off to find your own July whimsy , these are a couple of my other favorite calendars that Curiosity Group has come up with so far : January + April . Cannot wait to see more to come :) Hello Wednesday +  XO X O .

Someone once asked me regarding a creative mind , " So , are you almost constantly . . . overstimulated by every single thing you see ? " At the moment , I recall laughing + continuing the conversation in approval , but just began to give more thought to that thought in recent days .  How true is this of me ? Oh , so very . 
I mean , can ' t everyone be inspired by the image of an empty ice cream bowl set upon a yellow chair ? Such simple things sometimes + yet , I am continually astonished at how strikingly beautiful these simple things are . What is natural + what can be created . Creation is incredible + the human hands do marvelous things + if a bucket of used shotgun shells can appeal to me , then my lens to life can only be that much more joyful , don ' t you think ?  When a 6 3 year old , family owned surplus store on Alameda Avenue can result in 2 8 9 new photos on my camera , when a yellow checkered wall in a construction zone in downtown Denver makes me long to be there always , when I write + rewrite silly words just because they look perfectly grand on a piece of paper + when two hands touching on a dusty , dirty park bench is just plain B E AU T I FU L , then I suppose it is well worth it to see life through an overstimulated , overwhelmed , intrigued + exhaustedly happy eye .  For , I could simply not imagine seeing it any other way . For , would  y o u  ?

W h im sy W e ek en d : B an g !

There once was a girl who loved her little life with her little dog + her little boy + little house + little friends + a little job that let her play instead of work during the summer . But even then , it was nice enough to just escape for a day or two or three , somewhere else , away from the noise of the city + the calling of things to be done . One weekend , upon pondering her life + how to best simplify it + let go of the cares of her little world , she left her home with a gun . And a boy . And a camper . And bikes . And fishing poles . And food . And drinks . And a friend . And they all drove down to the range to in a large with little orange discs called clay pigeons that fly up into the air from a . Yes , that was the big machine that the discs flew from . And as loud as the shots were + as teeny tiny as the discs were , the girl tried her luck + held a + shot it . And H I T the discs . Many times . And she was astonished at her discovery that after all of these years not every shooting a gun , she wasn't actually very terrible at it at all . What this girl also realized at the shooting range is that truly inspired her . So she took home two Winchester boxes full of empty shells to make do with . { Results to come } 
The three soon headed down to the where the fishing + napping in the sunshine + grilling of { hobo dinner = carrots + potato + onion + meat + salt + pepper in an aluminum foil wrap } took place . Everything around them was breathtakingly beautiful : the + the + the marvelous after the storm that nearly blew the down to the ground . Yes , some would think a double rainbow would be bright + V IV I D enough ,  but a T RI P L E  rainbow was a sight to see . With much merriment of story telling + eating + running through the rain , the girl + the boys spent a lovely evening on the lakeside with fishing poles . The only bites they got were that of the buzzing mosquitos that should far from belong here in Colorado .  The night was filled with the sounds of cheering + laughing + dancing from the fiesta on the yacht club balcony +swooping down to the water in hopes of catching a little fish dinner . Then , with a golden harvest moon looming above her , as big + as bright as the pumpkin she had carved last October , this girl knew that this day had been the perfect escape + she smiled happily to herself knowing she would shoot guns + see triple rainbows again oh.so.very soon. The End.
