It wasn't about believing this or that,
it wasn't about good and evil and right and wrong,
it was about finding the strength
to bear the discomfort that came
with being in the world.
- Mark Haddon (The red house)
i love this quote...
because truth be told, sometimes,
it is discomforting to be in the world.
A few pics of the melting snow and ice...
always a welcome sight after months of cold winter...
the thawing out of things...
the waking up of things...
slowly, the ice is transforming...and the blue ocean is visible once again.
You could actually hear the snow melting...
i stood there for a while and thought the sound was as beautiful
as what it must have been like to listen to Mozart live.
Well, ok, maybe not quite as beautiful,
ice melting and droplets of water,
falling on pools of calm ocean around me...
sounding like a room full of tiny clapping hands.
the sand shifting with the thawing and the tides and the mini icebergs
pushing their way on shore...
snow fences to be mended or torn down.
a parade of picnic tables
just waiting for summer.
Who doesn't love spring?
There's been little art for me lately,
but i wanted to share this beautiful video
of Beverly Hawksley,
and artist and woman i love.
I can't seem to link the video directly here,
so i'll copy the URL and you can just paste it in your browser.
Check it out if you can.
Wishing you the kind of week that makes you smile.
