one more reason to go to new zealand

& say thank you

after someone gives you that boost,
here is where you can sit and look
into their sweet face & say thank you

(behind you, of course, will be
the wall of ladders you just installed)

chairs, ladders: here


i think a wall of old ladders
would be just the thing for today.

something to remind you that
every once in a while someone gave you
a boost up. and it made life that much better.

(thanks, someone.)


A quick look back (there
there might be more later,
this is it for now): here's how
Sunday/Monday was spent.
Would like to send out sincere
thanks to the brilliantly elegant
Claudia Schwartz of Bell'occhio
for knowing the perfect table
covering (hemp; magnificent)
& sharing it for the event. Another
note of gratitude to very talented
by with her marvelous camera
(which will surely supply better
photos than mine) and great eye.

Many thanks to the Foothill
Family Service for hosting
and helping transform lives.


sometimes i wonder if movies might
be the best medicine. did you ever
ever just think: i need to watch this
movie, stat. like it was going to save
you or something. and the thing is,
i think, maybe sometimes it does.

babette's feast.
