Moments of sunshine
after an extremely wet and dark January
are so very welcome!
I have taken to keeping my camera
on the table next to the back door,
so that I may grab it
and dart out
to photograph the light
when I see it shining out there.
At this time of year,
every second of it is precious.

Is it really February already??
I have been working on a project
that I am very excited about--
which I will share more about soon!--
and time has run away from me.
These are some of the things
that I have been enjoying lately:
Reading: The Song of Hartgrove Hall by Natasha Solomons
Watching: The Great British Baking Show (obsessed!!)
Listening: Heaven's Gate by Dawn Landes & Piers Faccini
Relishing: Pacific Northwest Ballet's Roméo et Juliette (goosebumps)

I recently added these photos,
my favorites of the past year,
to my website.
It's nice to see them
grouped together like this--
a tidy sampling
of seasons and moments and light.
One of my goals for 2015
was to shoot more film.
While I didn't shoot a huge amount,
I definitely made it a priority again,
and realized how much I had missed it
and how much I still love it.
It will definitely be something
that I continue with
in the New Year.
I am optimistic for 2016.
I am hoping it will be,
A Year Unlike Any Other.

landed at my feeder
during a sudden
A few tufts of feathers
stuck up on his head,
forming a single, charming cowlick.
After taking a drink,
he puffed himself up,
and shook all over,
like the tiniest wet dog you could imagine.
He cocked his head to the right
and I told him
what I tell all of the birds
that land at my feeders.
You are beautiful,
you are welcome;
I would never hurt you.
He took one more sip
and cocked his head once more
and zoomed away.
