lily of the valley from our garden & collage-a-thon avec most dedicated & loving companion Oliver

Every day I see or hear something that more or less 
kills me with delight, that leaves me like a needle in the haystack of light.

Mary Oliver

the heady scent of lily of the valley, the perfect paws of my adored cat, pink & red & coral & more pink, the sound of the wind in the trees. It's the little things that keep us alive, that keep us moving forward step by step, day by day. I know this to be true.

Heard this fantastic Eagles song at the grocery store yesterday, oh my when I was 17 and completely lost - I loved this song, this album Hotel California one of those records from my youth, that I knew every word to every song, it's most definitely on the top 100 albums of the soundtrack of my life.


  1. Your collage process is breathtaking! Having fun catching up on your blog and many others after taking time off to go house-hunting - there's a whole different kind of breathtaking process. Your posts inspire every time.

  2. I love this post Susan... beautiful flowers, sweet kitty and mostly the song Sad Cafe by the Eagles! You surely are kind of a soul mate, I think!

  3. I also love your beautiful, colourful, original artwork.

  4. Thanks for posting about Hotel California - it's prompted my own post on the subject with a link to you. My pictures are not pretty like yours (yours are beautiful as always) but the town that prompted my post and its memories of The Eagles was not a pretty place, commonly known in South Australia as "Port a Gutter", than Port Augusta. Billy Joel also brings back memories of the place!
    Makes you appreciate the pretty things in life!- always much of it at Black Street. X

  5. Love LOVE that Mary Oliver quote!

  6. A beautiful photo collection of your colourful creativity, the flowers from your garden and those gorgeous paws.
