Play Time

I had 15 minutes of "unreserved" time.


So I stacked a basket with antique bottles and part of an old quilt.





The sun was just about to tuck itself behind the woods.





 And perhaps my photos would have been crisper...


but this time of day...





...when sunbeams and shadows waltz across the meadow and two-step across the Maple...




…is my favorite time of day. (Tied only with the dawn of a new day).



So I picked a few stems of hydrangea and a several feathery double cosmos, and did some very quick arranging on our old picnic table.




Just enough time to catch my favorite light.


Just enough time to fill my heart and mind with what it needed.






Just enough time to make my heart dance,




Fifteen minutes…well spent.

    I so love your posts and images and thoughts, and I may not have the strength to always comment (I usually read them to relax when I'm tired), but I love being able to say thank you! :)
    Love to you,

  10. What an awesome way to spend 15 minutes, enjoying beautiful evening light and creating beauty! I wish you luck with your 31 days of writing in October. It was so good to see you on my blog! I've been so out of it this summer! I'm really behind on all my visits; but I think of you whenever I hear the word Nantucket. I hope that your school year starts off well and that you and yours are doing well!
