there is an exhaustion you have at the end of a day well spent.
an exhaustion in the quietness of your body when every single molecule has been pushed
and pulled and exercised.
there is a quiet that comes in the knowing that at the end of the day, it has been well spent.
well spent in the sun.
well spent mucking up the sand.
well spent freezing your toes in not quite warm, but ever so inviting water.
well spent shivering under a towel waiting for the cocoa that you hoped was packed into a thermos, into a bag, onto the beach; cocoa in a thermos, tight lidded and steaming, waiting to be drunk.
an exhaustion from well spent time
chasing birds and and the trails of snail sand foam across the crunching crushed stones of
a thousand waves.
well spent in a space of time caught up in a jam jar spread
across the tops of honeyed bread
and grapes popped in a chipmunk cheeked mouth.
an exhaustion of giggles & napping & sunning.
there is an exhaustion at the end of a day.
at the end of a day well spent.
trying to sort through all these lovely photos of wee ones & loved ones whom I adored from last week's link up at Che&Fidel is so hard! I am really trying to make a round to visit everyone -but here are some new faces I haven't had here yet (& ones that I have had) : images here are just lovely. these three siblings. another sweet set of sibs. & i so could not resist the stripes! this sweet gooey face. & these brothers!
Do you feel like you are growing in your photography since you have started this series? I am just an armchair amateur but I really believe I have seen growth in others photos just in the past month alone. What do think?
happy spring! happy easter! happy passover! happy weekend to all!
