My new friend R and I went to the Royal Botanics a few weeks ago. I haven’t been in a photo-taking mood for a while, but I took my dSLR just in case. Of course I forgot my macro lens and my tripod, so I got fifty blurry shots of pretty blooms and bees doing their thing, and then this one.
So yes, I am a walking cliché.
Hello. I am still here. June is the kind of busy that makes my eyebrows hurt, but 90% of it is wonderful busy, like spending time with my mom. Here is a photo I took of a bloom on the orchid she gave us last year. And if you are in or near Edinburgh, come along to the National Flash Fiction Day event I helped to coordinate.
See you in July.
It wasn’t what she said, but how she said it.
Not an unkind word, but the way the letters
like soldiers with pikes
were ready to do damage
and could wait to do it.
She could wait.
She was ready.
You probably already know that I am excitedly participating in Project 365, taking a photo a day for a year. But what I am really excited about is that four of my favorite people are also participating! Here are their photos for the first day of 2012 …
Are you participating too? Post a link to your set in the comments!
ETA: I have created a Project 365 bundle for Google Reader so you can subscribe to all of our RSS feeds at once.
One whole year of marriage already? How can this be possible? You’d think we had spent the last twelve months planning a transcontinental move or something.
Post-move, time seems to be slowing down a bit, which I appreciate because I want to savor each moment with my husband. (Will referring to FunkyPlaid as “my husband” ever get less thrilling to type?)

I had this great idea to finally post our wedding photos as a first anniversary gift. Due to some technical issues and my own rampant obsessiveness, this gift took a little longer to deliver than I would have hoped, but it is now finished.
