august 12 - water/sky



sunset at Skaket Beach, Orleans MA


even the ocean

rising and falling all day...

sighing green like trees

- Buson






We are the night ocean filled

With glints of light. We are the space

Between the fish and the moon,

While we sit here together.


I do not cease swimming in the seas of love,

rising with the wave, then descending;

now the wave sustains me, and then I sink beneath it;

love bears me away where there is no longer any shore.

- Hallaj

  5. Hi Liz!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! It is so encouraging to hear of other moms who struggle to balance life with their art as well! I too love the Artistic Mother book and found it to be so helpful! Still trying to live in the moment and not let life get away from me...!! :) Looks like you do a wonderful job of that; your pictures are so beautiful!!

    Take care,
    Jennifer
