afternoon light






















She reads books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.
~Annie Dillard

Each time I open the blinds in the kitchen, it feels like the light is saying, "Hello. It's so good to be here."

p.s. The book above is The Long Now by Uta Bartha favourite I return to often.

  8. It definitely says so in the picture. I love how you take the mundane and make it magical.
    And the choice of quote couldn't be more proper.

  9. Great! I think this is perfect, too. I wonder the light you have caught is shining out of the book.

  16. I just started reading my first Annie Dillard book (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek) last night! After spending a day soaking up the sun and walking ankle deep in mud at the arboretum, it made me tear up repeatedly! So many beautiful sentiments and such a sense of wonder. I love it.
