About Me

My photo
i moved where my heart had drifted off to long before. i live on a hill of hundred acres, where my dreams have merged with the view. it is quiet from machine noises yet loud with sounds of horses, dogs, cats chickens and ducks. nature is the true artist in resident and i am just her apprentice who often gets lost in her gaze. once and a while i travel back to cities and foreign places to put into photographs what i have learned, yet always, part of my heart is left on the hill..

when the sound you hear changes everything....


when you are woken by the sound of rain it is bittersweet. at first you listen to it as it hits different places of your home, your window your roof..and you love the sound. your eyes begin to open and the room is darker and you like it. you pull in your blanket closer to you and think maybe i will linger here a little longer. then you begin to think of your day at what you had planned for it and now that too must change. there will be no walk in the woods with a friend, no raking leaves in the garden...but perhaps you will stay nestled in comfy clothes and work on that project you have been putting of, perhaps you will make that recipe that you have been wanting to try...maybe you will make a pot of tea and curl up and watch the italian movie you ordered from netflixs...but then you think, maybe you won't change anything and you will put on your wellies, and rummage for a good raincoat, fill your thermos with something hot and go for a walk....just maybe you will do that...

i just discovered your blog because of the comment you left on mine. i think i had seen your little red feet (profile pic) around in comments on other blogs, but never took the time to check yours our.

if i may, i would like to add a link to it on my photo blog.

thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. it is ALWAYS nice to receive one—especially from someone new.

It's raining here today..but it sure isn't as lovely as you are making it sound! lol Got dragged out of bed to help unload the work car in the rain, am battling the sounds of the morning cartoons, before starting school with the kiddo. *sigh* Now I am dreaming of your kind of day. :)

I love how you explain this. It's just how I think too, when I hear rain but also when I see snow outside my window :)

I too feel like snuggling up a little bit longer in bed whenever the rain greets me in the mornings. But there's something about the rain, the smell, the way your skin feels it, that makes me long for something I never had and can't describe. And walking in the rain, that's definitely something I will try in the future.
