slow stitching


I've been enjoying some slow moments 
of visible repair on some of my 
favorite holy shorts !! 


The Burning Question




...how do you want it to feel? 

Danielle LaPorte asked me...

I answered it

   now this is my "poetic, lyrical and abstract truth"


~I want my day to feel like the curls of smoky Nag Champa
~I want my toes to feel like octopus suction cups
~I want my kissing to feel like melting honey
~I want my yoga practice to feel like an Egyptian Pyramid during a summer rainy sunrise
~I want my writing to feel like Shel Silverstein on a slip `n’ slide
~I want my body to feel like Tree Pose on a pier in Bay of Cancun
 ~I want my lunch break to feel like an Olympic Springboard dive in to azure waters
~I want my solitude to feel like Bowen Island, B.C.
~I want my leather boots to feel like Willie Nelson
~I want my backyard to feel like childhood tents made from bed sheets and coffee tables
~I want my love to feel like a birthday bubble bath in Scotland
~I want my breakfast to feel like a field of Sunflowers in France
~I want my friendships to feel like faded 501's, clove cigarettes, patchouli suntan shoulders
~I want my dinner tongue to feel like fireworks laced with Wasabi and Cabernet
~I want my kitchen to feel like Frida Kahlo eating mangoes in rainforest herb gardens
~I want my grandchildren to feel like Pee Wee’s Playhouse
~I want my bed to feel like 800 thread count marshmallow cream silk cocoon
~I want my end of the day to feel like the final push of childbirth

Walk to End Alzheimer's

We finally walked the walk 



After a busy month of Purple Art Party planning, 
fundraising and promoting, we did it !!! 
"Walk to End Alzheimer's"




It wasn't about the money raised or 
miles we walked...it was all about the love and support we experienced 

and the water fountain !! 



Our campaign is open until 
the end of September

sweet moments on the porch


The photo above is my 3 PM feature over at The Hours
a photo project I am proud to be a part of.

Afternoons spent on the porch with my Mom 
and stepdad Jack are priceless. 
Words not necessary ! 


Backstory : some days are hard for Jack. It might take 2 hours to eat dinner. And sometimes unknowing what to do with a fork in his hand. Yet when it comes to ice cream cones, the mind never forgets!!

Walk to End Alzheimer's


On September 26, 2015 my Mom, Lyn Keil, and I 
will lace up our shoes, 
dye our hair purple and "Walk to End Alzheimer's",  
the nationwide annual event to raise awareness and funds for support, care and research.
