i used to have the biggest weakness for design magazines , and baking ones , and the occasional fashion mag too . they piled up in my home and I couldn’t wait to put my feet up with a cup of coffee and rifle through or go to bed with it after the kids were asleep. these days my dreaming/inspiration time is taken up almost completely by Pinterest . cultivating a from the offerings on Pinterest is like creating a magazine tailored EXACTLY  to your passions.

these are some things that caught my eye this week.

these are not my images

If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”

“Babies are soft. Anyone looking at them can see the tender, fragile skin and know it for the rose-leaf softness that invites a finger’s touch. But when you live with them and love them, you feel the softness going inward, the round-cheeked flesh wobbly as custard, the boneless splay of the tiny hands. Their joints are melted rubber, and even when you kiss them hard, in the passion of loving their existence, your lips sink down and seem never to find bone. Holding them against you, they melt and mold, as though they might at any moment flow back into your body.

But from the very start, there is that small streak of steel within each child. That thing that says “I am,” and forms the core of personality.

Diana Gabaldon

“It’s just that the thing you never understand about being a mother, until you are one, is that it is not the grown man – the galumphing, unshaven, stinking, opinionated off-spring – you see before you, with his parking tickets and unpolished shoes and complicated love life. You see all the people he has ever been all rolled up into one.
I look at him and see the baby I held in my arms, dewing besotted, unable to believe that I’d created another human being. I see the toddler, reaching for my hand, the schoolboy weeping tears of fury after being bullied  by some other child. I saw the vulnerabilities, the love, the history.”

i literally gasped as these film scans downloaded. these were the first images i saw from my new pentax and i couldn’t believe how well they turned out. the camera is a bit of a beast and i felt really clumsy handling it and when the shutter goes off it feel like the earth moves ! i was honestly expecting a blurry mess .i am still having some technicall issues and i am not sure if is the camera or me but i can’t wait to try some more.

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

the winter is so dreary and long. days seem to stretch out forever it seems and there are times that I ache to take my camera in my hands and shoot… but what . every year I say to myself , I need to take more photos in the summer ,even stock pile some to work on in the winter.  then spring comes and the world warms and comes to life and i look up and a month has passed . days are spent going for runs and walks, gardening and just enjoying the moments in the sun and i realize i am letting it pass by again.

 “Came the Spring and all its splendor, All its birds and all its blossoms, All its flowers leaves and grasses.”
― Longfellow Hiawatha
