i'm the only one in the house who eats black jellybeans

 i had to be careful while knitting this little egg
not to get sticky stainy goo on it.
for those who observe this holiday, wishing you a beautiful day.

the finished doll

remember the project i posted earlier this week?
here she is, all done.
i wonder if the sunlight falling on her that day when she was simply pieces 
has been knitted into her spirit.

oh what a beautiful morning

i strode out into the snow studded morning and filled an entire memory card.

perhaps spring suffered a wee setback

but this young girl took the opportunity during yesterday's snowstorm to make a new friend.

we humans are such fools

to think winter might be losing its grip.
this morning the snow falls with cold determination
and spring has turned her back on us 
 resuming her long sleep.

somewhere in massachusetts

peter pan is a bus line,bob, like greyhound or trailways.
shadows were permitted in the bus, malyss, and they played actively through the entire ride.
no, tink was not driving, birdman.
it was late morning when i shot these, lowell.
slim, i don't think that was the train certainly wasn't the bus station.
(after the very helpful comments from Kenneth Peterson it is confirmed that yesterday's shot is indeed a train station)

theme day--cafe chairs

come sip a cup of custom-blended tea 
and savor a delicate pastry
at the twilight tea lounge and cafe.
the seating is a comfy-cozy hodgepodge of sofas, chairs, and stools.

happy march, everyone.
i'm on the road for a few days and may not be able to post.
take care.
