more scenes from a mostly thrilling (in a good way) life - I am grateful for each & every day

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror
Just keep going. No feeling is final

Rainer Maria Rilke

from the book The Chemistry of Calm by Henry Emmons M.D. - an excellent read

Hey !! There's a Prince on our roof ! Hooray !


  1. what a great quote. I might write that down and hang it up. I finished FLannery. Come by and see how it ended. Tell the prince my roof needs work. he might like a break from the cool seaside - he can come here and sweat in our lovely humidity, get gnats in his eyes, stings from a variety of flying insects, snakes,!

  2. What chickory also fails to include is naked soaking in the most wonderful, cool stream and fishing. Of course you'd have to come along to her beautiful artist's retreat. It would gladden your soul.

    LOVE that furry face, happy in her chair.

  3. Ah that quote is amazing. So are your photos - very reflective of the quote. Happy doggie.....

  4. Winnie looks as though she would echo your sentiments .

  5. hey sue;
    more crows! yay!!
    nice to see doug taking care of the old place - from what i remember from my only (very brief) visit years ago, it's a beauty. if i ever find the pic i took of you and emma(?) sitting on the front steps, i'll send it along.
    cheers - n

  6. Susan, I just love coming here. Your photographs are some of my favourite in the whole blogosphere.
    Love to Winnie!
