31 january




 the bitter cold has kept me indoors

and i begin to feel the loss of the natural world as my constant companion

there is a stirring within me 

to walk the beaches and the small woods of this rather tiny island

exploring the lines of the horizon

the lines of dawn

the lines of the Atlantic as it laps the shore

~



 across the street at dog beach a small dingy washed up on shore during the nor'easter

we had just after New Years

~

 many years ago another storm washed up the big wooden structure in the foreground

the semi-circular pieces you see are for holding some type of oars

I have no idea what it once was

i tell the boys it is part of an old pirate ship

~

the very first house you can see, the green one, is our house

~


the market was on my list of things to do yesterday

the list i put aside in favor of searching through every single drawer and file

for a single piece of paper that, as it turns out, we never had to begin with

the market is on my list of things to do again today

it will be much more difficult to fit in though

and i will be hungry as i shop because

there is nary a crumb of food in the house

  1. Beautiful pictures and that is certainly interesting structure, maybe it was an old pirate ship.

  2. It looks like a lovely place to live any time of year! Grocery shopping is always difficult when one is hungry. I try to at least eat a snack before I go :)

  3. I make lists then forget to take them, and when I am at the store I pull out a list from the week before and stare at it puzzled for a moment before I realize that Today's List is on the Dining Room Table back at home...:)

  4. A washed up pirate ship...oh, I bet the boys' imagination runs wild with that!!
    Yes, I too would much rather have the warm sunshine and the tropical beaches in comparison to the cold wintry scene you share with your home in the background. Not the home...or the area....but the COLD feel it emanates.

  5. I dislike going to the store hungry as I buy everything and anything, but then I have too much control when I'm not and get home wishing I'd bought more. That first shot is so lovely! Gosh I am so tired of winter now :)

  6. It´s cold here as well and that makes everything a bit harder I think.

  7. I understand the feeling after being in the house for too long -- I pace! Lovely to see your house. I used to enjoy walking along the beach and seeing what treasure might have deposited on shore. Happy shopping!

  12. The colors in your first shot are simply glorious! And every little boy needs to discover a pirate ship! I'm missing my time with nature as well since the frigid temps are keeping me inside too.

  13. Market is on my list today, too. -sigh- I finally have to venture out, after having sent husband, for this and that, for too long now. -grin-

    Green house, the one on the hill, to the left of the pic, yes?

    How wonderful to live surrounded by woods and beaches, where interesting items wash up, after storms. To walk those beaches... Oh how lucky you are.

  18. What a great place to live. Love your beach photos. And the big wooden structure is awesome.

  19. Interesting post...love just hearing about your life. What will happen to the dingy? Will the owner be found, or will someone just claim it? I didn't know if it had some kind of numbers on it to show who really owns it, or if there are a dime a dozen there and no one worries.

  20. Another great post from you!
    Dang! I wish I lived in that lovely green house by the beach! That is my dream!
    I hate going to the grocery store when I'm hungry .... I buy almost everything in sight! LOL
    Have a great weekend!

  22. Wow you live really close to the ocean. That is so cool. I love your photo and reading about the (pirate ship). Sure is interesting looking. Does anyone know what it actually was used for. - Yes I think many are so ready for the winter to be over and done with.
    I just realized I wasn't a "follower" of your blog but I've remedied that now.

  23. ... I was getting ready to go to the store this morning and then thought, I really don't need to go... so I didn't! :) Lovely images of the beach.

  24. The sunrise is beautiful! How wonderful to live that close to the water, even if it is cold. How I long to sink my toes in the sand...

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
