An April Walk

On this quintessential April morning, I step outside my door and inhale the the cool, clean renewal of the times. This new season inspires...

...the Earth to rinse itself from the storms and detritus of wintertime.

Green hues, brilliant in their newness, return once more...

...while pale pink blooms in spite of the grey April sky - full of hope for brighter days to come.

Aged moss thrives amid ancient stone, hillside societies that thrive on the vertical lifestyle...

...and purple cones sprout pleasantly from the dirt, waiting for those nourishing April showers mixed with the sprightly rays of a spring sun.

Happy April!

  4. ah yes, thank god for april and rebirth!

    i can't thank you enough for your comment on my post about the tubs. you're right, i often can't cry when i need to and it takes something so silly and unimportant to bring it out. last night i was able to, it began at the beginning of my hour long subway ride--euf--i was that person that falls apart in public and people stare at, and it gets so bad that someone has to hand them a stack of mcdonalds napkins--which happened. awesome. it was awesome. not. but good things will come. i have faith. or i'm trying to and that's something.

  5. I want to get cool vintage photo apps for my iPhone! Love these shots. Yay for springtime! xoxo Katie
