Where our feet take us...

Evelyn: Haven't been dancing much... but tonight - new moleskins on my old converse sneakers while my dancing shoes practice at Bean Town - newly sueded. I fly and swing with familiar faces, content.

Internal Conversations

Evelyn: Have had a few dates, a few drawbacks, and disappointments, and the taste of something delightful but uncertain... so I ended a "date" early and disappeared to the causeway to stare at the stars. Solitude in a place where I have felt safe with a friend (who happens to be far away at school) and delighted myself instead on the possibilities between the stars, the moon, and the quiet chirp of cicadas. I have had numerous late visits here... lit only by the lights of the city and moon... and the gentle conversation with a trusted friend.  I miss those conversations... being wrapped in a sweater... as the breeze moves through ... the sound of a voice, easy and encouraging.

Speckles & Patterns

Evelyn: My friend Ed gifted me a lovely little magic panel box. It was part of a series of boxes leading to a message that sent my dancing shoes on a trip to Boston. Tonight was filled with discoveries as I figured out how to open the box... later discovering a geo-cache near Gulfport under the guise of grasses and horses.

Letters on a Late Night

Evelyn: Late night writing... late night chatter and friendliness ... late night knowledge and connection, alone with my keyboard, my thoughts, and an eager personality at the other end.

Evelyn: and then the rain stopped... and the carcasses of the flooding emerged in the wake of wetness.

Tea & Honey

Evelyn: As the rain continued to pour, Vinna and I made our way down wet streets to a girl-gathering tea & cookie party. I got to stomp, barefoot, through puddles to rescue my car from flooding, and return to a dry space filled with laughter and honey.

Media Consumption

Evelyn: Monica & Michael gave me a spectacular Shel Silverstein adult picture book that follows the path of relationships of every kind. I love it, not only for the art, but for the many subtle messages...

Making a Run for the Beach

Evelyn: My effort to get sand in my toes amidst lots of activity... exhausted and eager.

Puppy Love

Evelyn: Bud & Betty's pup, who is always eager for some gentle loving.

Atomic Era

Evelyn: Out dancing... and each table held a different group...

Dusty Rooster

Evelyn: Sometimes when I am alone, and it is late, and there isn't much to do because my kid is in California and I am bored, I really notice how much dust has been missed in a round of cleaning.

Working For...

Evelyn:  I can only guess that this is Monica & Michael's House Deck... and they are working hard to get things situated... and me.. I work for my bowl of Kashi and Blueberries.

Taking Things Apart

Evelyn: Largo is in a slow state of disassembling. Been hard to watch, unsure of what direction the school is taking, unable to ease the uncertainty that floats between renovations and changes.

Monday, June 11, 2012


Evelyn:  At work I am acclimating to big adjustments, yet again. New people, change in space, and evidence of what had been. It is late, and I see him staring at the space where my co-worker once sat... surfs up, there are some changes! Ride them out!

Going Bananas

Evelyn: I am keeping with my Nature's Food Patch visits. I have been enjoying organic bananas, as these sit staring at me to approach, make a move, and consume them.

Do Not Sit

Evelyn: We were thrifting along, having had Vinna spend the night. These were NOT for sale, but on display at a 2nd hand store - "Do NOT sit, NOT for SALE!"

Being Fed

Evelyn: I love when friends feed me! Stunning spinach salad, full of fruit, and a thanksgiving feast after a freezer was unexpectedly unplugged! YEAY.

I'm Bored

Evelyn: This is what you take pictures of when you are bored, it is late, and you are still at work.

On the Fridge

Evelyn: Justin began a series of art images that caught my attention. It has been lovely having them hanging on my fridge with other examples of his life.

Tuesday, June 5, 2012


Evelyn: Dinner with a friend who cooked an unexpectedly different and delightful meal. I felt appreciation for the care he took, the organization of his efforts in a one-ass kitchen as I plugged away at Javascript lessons. Conversations over papaya salad and steak...

Coming & Going

Evelyn: Morning beach walk, and for once I went to the pier. I paused to stand, just as she did, to take in the meditative lull of the waves moving along the pillars.

Thank you!

Evelyn: I love shadows in the early morning. I am appreciative that Justin and I finally got a bike pump, and I occasionally take my bike for a spin for 30-40 minutes. I haven't ventured as far as the trail yet... it is all about motivation and time. 

Friday, June 1, 2012


Evelyn: This was on a first date with a guy from dancing... and I thoroughly enjoyed meandering St. Pete after dinner. But what gets me about these two images is how perfectly the horizons blend, the peer running into the stream, the hill into the water-sky line...
