texture tuesday ~ dreaming


a foggy 7 a.m. cup of coffee out on the front yard at the bay.
complete with bug net and small white dog.
every day should start like this, i think.
surrounded by silence:
just the high tide water rippling on the beach
the muffled gulls drifting by.
was gerry dreaming? 
nope. just waiting for a SAT phone signal...
so much for my henry d. thoreau moment.

i used kim klassen's "dream" texture on this photo taken a few days ago at ugak bay.

  1. Yes, I agree, everyday should start with the soft gentle sound of the water on the beach and birds. I am beginning to enjoy the silence of the morning more and more.

  2. I love it! Whatever the reality of that moment, you set the mood beautifully in your words and your image. So, you're from Brimfield! I've lived in CT for 20 years now and have been meaning to go to the antiques fair there every year but never have. Small world, huh?

  3. That's absolutely gorgeous! I do agree, every day should start like this. Or something like this. For now, all I can manage is to make breakfast in a hurry with a grumpy toddler in my arms before rushing through the early morning. One day.... Here's to dreaming. :)

  4. Deb! How did I almost miss this? It's brilliant.
    That's just what my Lu likes to do, sit on my lap that way, but 50+lbs of bulldog does not a lap dog make.
    A fine Thoreau moment, nonetheless.
    PS hope this comment makes it in. I've tried before but they seem to disappear into the void...
