I loved making this journal page. Deb Lacativa's fabrics are such fun. I really wouldn't mind having a dress like this for my very own. Millie wouldn't mind if I dressed a bit wild when we walked our trails.
"The sky appears broader now than it did. The day has opened its eyelids wider. The lengthening of the days commenced a good while ago, is a kind of forerunner of spring. ~ Thoreau from his journal Feb. 19, 1852
"Once in his life a man ought to concentrate his mind upon the remembered earth. He ought to give himself up to a particular landscape in his experience; to look at it from as many angles as he can, to wonder upon it, to dwell upon it. He ought to imagine that he touches it with his hands at every season and listens to the sounds that are made upon it. He ought to imagine the creatures there and all the faintest motions of the wind. He ought to recollect the glare of the moon and the colors of the dawn and dusk."
~Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams
I love this quote. I can never quite get enough of this "particular landscape" where Millie and I tread every day. Even though I photograph the same old spots over and over they are never the same. Maybe it's the light or the angle or... I just don't know.
