everything you do

“Was not writing poetry a secret transaction, a voice answering a voice?”

-Virginia Woolf, Orlando

A word is not the same with one writer as it is with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket. 

- Charles PĆ©guy

This is the time
For you to deeply compute the impossibility 
That there is anything 
But Grace.

Now is the season to know 
that everything you do
is sacred.

- Hafiz

Holiday Monday.

Listening to:  Daughters of Folk on Songza. 

Thinking of joining Pinterest. Yes, yes, I am.

Planning, scheming. Drawing up a schedule to finish my current work. More to add, lots of editing to do, of course. And then, the next one, which begins to announce itself, slowly. 

Thinking about: secret transactions, words, grace. 

Thinking about: roses. About: Flowers. Made a short video kind of thing about Rob's flower paintings. He has some interesting things to say about his process, about painting in general. Made mainly with my iPhone, and using iMovie. 

Watching: We love British television. The latest discovery has been Doc Martin which we've watched here and there on PBS, but that's rather hit and miss. Brought home the DVDs from the library and had a proper Doc Martin Fest. (Martin Clunes is ridiculously subtle and brilliant as the Doc).  I can see why visiting Port Isaac has become increasingly popular - what a beautiful backdrop for the show. Now waiting for series 6, coming out this fall. One of my co-workers at the library suggested William and Mary, with Martin Clunes as well. Started it last night - also brilliantly lovely. Am now thinking of joining the Martin Clunes fan club. 

Reading: Pretty Pastel Style. (Big surprise there :) )


  1. such perfectly gorgeous colours. Yes, I too, even joined Pinterest -- not sure what got into me, but yes I did.

  2. I still haven't joined anything :( These pix are just lovely. You are sounding energetic and excited! Nice to see.
