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.
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.

a small part of a big fantastic new project I'm currently working on - sshhhhh it's a secret ;-)
One day when the light is glowing
I’ll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open
I just wanna feel this moment
I love pop music, it's like candy - it makes me feel good, I don't have to take it too seriously, it makes me feel up & happy plus it makes me wanna dance. It's just another pill in my mo' medicine cabinet of feel good. I get my pop mucic fix a few evenings a week watching Much Music's top 20 videos. My current 3 favourite sing alongs ... and a lil' chair dancin' too !

A photograph is a secret about a secret.
The more it tells you the less you know.
There is only you and your camera.
The limitations in your photography are in yourself,
for what we see is what we are.
photography as medicine
at least I know it's my medicine ...
it's one of them anyway
When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts.
Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.
