starting anything new can be daunting…there is no one way to procede…no life manual (or at least i didn’t get mine)…sometimes the first sep is the hardest…so its important to remember, everyone has to start somewhere…so why not start here…now…today…let this new year…this friday morning be your start….to what?? what ever your little heart desires….for me….i am craving balance…and this coming year i will search for it high & low….i also want to learn something new…something i have never done before….i am ready & about to take my first step….i say, lets take a walk together…xoxoxoxo

Te Busco

“Al cielo una mirada larga
Buscando un poco de mi vida.
Mis estrellas no responden
Para alumbrarme hacia tu risa.
Olas que esfuman de mis ojos
A una legin de tus recuerdos.
Me roban formas de tu rostro
Dejando arena en el silencio.
Te busco perdida entre sueos
El ruido de la gente me envuelven en un velo.
Te busco volando en el cielo
El viento te ha llevado como un pauelo viejo.
Y no hago ms que rebuscar
Paisajes conocidos
En lugares tan extraos
Que no puedo dar contigo.
En cualquier huella te persigo
En una sombra te dibujo
Huellas y sombras que se pierden (en la soledad)
La suerte no vino conmigo.
Te busco perdida entre sueos
El ruido de la gente me envuelven en un velo.
Te busco volando en el cielo
El viento te ha llevado como un pauelo viejo.
Y no hago ms que rebuscar
Paisajes conocidos
En lugares tan extraos
Que no puedo dar contigo.
Te busco”

over the holidays i have been spending a lot of time cooking…and following recipes (i am normally a fly by the seat of my pants in the kitchen kind of girl)…i am also of course smitten with anything “french”…so as i prepare for my workshop in france next year, i have been flirting with the art of french cooking….so far i’ve had two successes, (i base this on the “mmm’s” my kids make & the amount of food left on their plates), coq au vin & for christmas , beef bourguinon….

here’s what i’ve learned…cooking like photography requires time & devotion…flavor is in the sublities….perfect seasoning is a bit like perfect light, you must be sensitive & attentive to capture the perfect balance…at least with cooking, you can follow a recipe & have some confidence in the outcome….a good photograph is perhaps a bit more elusive….for me, as much as i love preparing a special meal for my family, i can only devote a limited amount of time in the kitchen…i will occasionally devote a day to cooking, but my true passion is photography, alas there aren’t enough hours in the day…to those of you who are masters in the kitchen, i bow down, humble & in awe…

whatever your passion may be…here’s to the time & patience to pursue it…xoxo

our lives are joined in love

Turn Your Lights Down Low

“Loving you is a like a song I replay
Every 3 minutes and 30 seconds of every day
And every chorus was written for us to recite
Every beautiful melody of devotion every night
It’s potion like this ocean that might carry me
In a wave of emotion to ask you to marry me
And every word, every second, and every third
Expresses the happiness more clearly than ever heard
And when I play them, every chord is a poem
Telling the Lord how grateful I am cause I know him
The harmonies possess a sensation similar to your caress
If you asking then I’m telling you it’s yes
Stand in love, take my hand in love,
God bless”
