Capturing Time


So many ideas. So many ways to say what there is to say. So important to say it.


Experiments to run.


Mango popsickles to eat in front of the computer screen.


Sumi ink ... one of my biiiigggg secrets. shhhhhh...


floating above the beauty


gathering in the miracles (thanks, Ruth)


gathering in the saints


meals of flowers and fruit


in the shade of the Druid's tree


the bells of laughter


warm faces of angels


new life, rescued and safe now


precious precious precious


so much beauty your heart crumbles


goats that think they're dogs


how to capture it


to soothe us in the winter


to prove it really happened

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. - frederick keonig

you seem to recognize this and i love how it comes through in your posts

You're really living life again Judy. I love to see the progression of your journal page. All that delicious summer food too, while we settle down to bowls of hot soup.

Sumi ink... when I see it on your pages it looks embossed, and shiny. Thanks for sharing your secret, beautiful!

Beautiful pages and photos... curious about the expression "Espittitus Santus"... what does that translate to and is that Latin?

Ruth said...

Thanks for sharing a wonderful afternoon with us Judy! Your spirit shines in this post & even more in person :) I treasure our friendship...

Judy Wise said...

Espiritus Santus means holy spirit. I think I'm spelling it wrong. Spanish I'm pretty sure. I scribbled it down when a friend told me it was the name of a place in Mexico.

misty said...

I have never used Sumi ink. WHAT? Where are my priorities!

The kitties gave me a little teardrop. so sweet..

Marit said...

My journal about the same week is at the same "not finished yet" point as in your photo.. love to see the same dates and a totally different "feel" to the week (although mine is happy too...) Your pics are gorgeous and I LOVE the "druid tree"... oh how I long for a druid tree to grow near! Have a happy weekend!

Clare Wassermann said...

a totally lovely post - I had to view it on my phone with a magnifying glass on holiday - now I can see it on a bigger screen it's even yummier!

Lynn Fisher said...
