“How lovely yellow is! It stands for the sun.”

~ Vincent van Gogh

When I was young I wanted a yellow kitchen. I never got it–and it’s too late now, tastes change–but I did make and hang a set of yellow gingham cafe curtains when my children were babies. They cheered and comforted me for many years.

These days, I’m not drawn to yellow, so I hesitated before getting down on the ground in the park yesterday to photograph these yellow blossoms. Turned out there was a whole cheery world down there and I’m glad I took the time.

Friday is typically housework day but I may put it off in favour of camera play this morning and, this afternoon, a visit with my bestie. I’m retired. I can make my own rules now.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
