filling our baskets


here is a new picture we found at the fair. i dont know what its called.

i love the way the light is dusting the women... the way they are up and working before the sunrise... the way they are so draped in shawls, skirts and baskets they look like they are part of the earth.

the sun IS coming up again today. its cool and today we will talk about everything that still excites us... we do matter. our lives matter. our gathering matters. our tiny treasures matter. our smiles and our thoughts matter. the way our shoes shuffle in the mud and our workers hands hold tight to our findings. the way we still have things to say. we tick and tock and still wake up new.

Oh, lovely painting. The gold and earthy tones make it look so warm somehow. And also, is that your dining room? It's beautiful, especially the skylights!

Hi there! Ive been a follower and fan of both your music and blog for a while now. I know this might come off a little awkward, especially since I'm posting it in your comment page but would you give me the opportunity to interview you? Well, through email... that is.

Do let me know! Thanks. :)

Good luck with the French! I think at first it seems tedious, then it seems easy (so like English!), and then you realize one morning that you've been in France three years and spent the entire night before making loads of grammar mistakes which everyone politely ignored! Or at least, that is how I find it.
The absolute most important thing is to not be shy... shyness is where the all the real problems start!
