the life outside my door


the weather is now a perfect. a big stunning storm came and took away all the humidity.   it has a been all about the outdoors here on the hill.  special moments that feel as if they have been choreographed just for me, like deers giving birth in our long grasses and even though only through binoculars can i experienced it, it is still incredible. baby swallows hatch and fly away as i hold my breathe hoping that  their mama does not leave one behind. discovering and eating tiny wild strawberries from the fields. picking my first few radishes and eating them instantly, my vegetable garden growing in perfect and not so perfect rows. butterflies, fireflies, finches, chipmunks with babies who be friend a birds . bouquets of wildflowers scattered through the house, daisies, bachelor buttons, corn flowers, yarrow, black eye susans and these flocks that can be seen everywhere even through town and by road side. there has been two wasp bites within seconds, medicine and sleepiness. lemonade, hammocks and walks in tall grasses. there has been evenings by windows, cool breezes and sounds of tree frogs and stories from radios. all this is the goodness that make's it clear , i live in the country down a dirt road, on a large patch of earth that feels so far from everything but more real than anything else i know.

These photos are so beautiful. And wow! To watch a deer giving birth... to see the fawn on it's wobbly legs right after... that sounds awe inspiring.

The very inspiration Thomas Kinkade must have experienced.


Lovely indeed.

I never comented on your posts but I read them every single time. I cherish the photos and the comments, I wish to live there where you do. I can believe it it true, you actually live there in a place I see only in movies (I am from Argentina, really far away) and I think it is...well, magic. I envy you watching the images.
Hugs from far away...
