love love love this


Oh my goodness, I love this. I happened upon it at the absolutely perfectly perfect time. I have been going through (or likely causing) a great deal of inner struggle, lack of drive and joy and creativity, distraction, feeling overwhelmed by all the varying aspects of my life and not knowing how to nurture my relationship with myself. I suppose this is part of the experience of being alive, or at least what we need to push through in order to know what it is to be alive, instead of being always trapped in one's circulating thoughts.
This short film has struck me in my path. I am moved and grateful (:

you are my sunshine


When Isabella was 4 years old I took her to a summer camp. We stayed there for a whole month, as I was the arts and crafts instructor. She was much younger than most of the kids there; the beginning age being 7 or 8 as I remember, but a few of the other teachers also had little ones that they brought as well (: On one of the last evenings of camp, all the teachers and kids put on a talent show. Isabella wanted to sing a song on stage which surprised me at the time because she was such a shy little thing! Naturally, I wanted to help her pursue this uncharacteristic step of bravery so we painted a big happy sunshine on her shirt and we started practicing "You are my sunshine". It was so cute, the night she went onstage. She wanted me there so I sat on the stage floor beside her and held her hand. She sang her chosen song into a microphone in her sweet little girl voice, and there were many teary eyes from the innocence and beauty of it all (: I think this is one of my very favourite memories of all time, so when I came across this sweet little melody in the video up above, I thought it best to post it so I can come back and remember again and again. (:

I'll fly away



I took these while waiting in the car, Jude asleep in his carseat and Mom and Bella shopping for some last minute groceries. I patiently pointed my camera until the crow-bird decided it was time to fly. I love catching birds in flight. Magical, it is.
