delicious flowers

I cannot help but look at the weighted branches of these flowering trees

and think of sweet scoops of ice cream, stacked up

dreaming of summer fruit

Is it too early?

Is it too early to start dreaming about gorgeous summer peaches, piled onto a buttery crust

And the buttery crust is folded around the edges and covered with cinnamon crumble

and baked to golden perfection.
Is it too early?

thought for the new year

During a stormy November visit home, on a beach walk with my mother, we paused to lean into the wind (photo by my husband)

"We must be willing to let go of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that
is waiting for us."
- Joseph Campbell

I know it has been a while since I posted anything in this space.
I am looking forward to a new year, new dreams, new things to learn and sharing and writing more regularly.
Thanks for sticking around
