Into Something Better – Martha’s Vineyard

I am finally taking some time to share photos with you in this space.  I was so sorry I missed the last instalments of Into Something Better.  My internet connection in France was terrible, and I was far too busy visiting with my family to spend time online.

I have been back in the USA for two weeks and it has been a whirlwind of busy-ness, getting the homeschool schedule off to a good start, being sick (4 of us!), and it even included  a trip to the ER for a chopped finger. Everything is well and we are all healing, but finding time to get out with the kids has been super hard.

We are heading out to Martha’s Vineyard next week, so I thought it would be a good time to share last year’s freelensed photos form Martha’s Vineyard.  I freelensed with the Helios back then, and I love the way the blur renders, I think I need to dig that lens out again 🙂

Sleeping In The Forest by Mary Oliver

I thought the earth remembered me,
She took me back so tenderly
Arranging her skirts
Her pockets full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before
A stone on the riverbed,
Nothing between me and the white fire of the stars,
But my thoughts.
And they floated light as moths
Among the branches of the perfect trees.
All night I heard the small kingdoms
Breathing around me.
The insects and the birds
Who do their work in darkness.
All night I rose and fell,
As if water, grappling with luminous doom.
By morning I had vanished at least a dozen times
Into something better.

Until next moth,
