Sunday Stillness March 15th

Call it a clan,
call it a network,
call it a tribe,
call it a family;
whatever you call it,
whoever you are,
you need one.

This picture hangs in one of my favourite spots in Cuenca. Don Colon’s restaurant just across the street from the “new” cathedral. I don’t know who the artist is but when I find out, I’m going to look into purchasing one of her/his pieces.

This time next year

Of course none of us know about next year, really not even the next moment. But, “the good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise” I won’t be looking out the window at this:


or wondering if I want to navigate a walkway that is under ice:


and I especially won’t be asking myself if I can hang in there for a few more weeks of cold and snow!


Because, I will be somewhere in this beautiful city instead:

Cuenca, Ecuador

Cuenca, Ecuador

and I promise to post pictures from my window and of my front door on this day next year and we will all smile!

Sunday Stillness

I can’t think of a more lovely way to spend a Sunday than to have my daughter over to bake and decorate cookies. I helped by doing cleanup and taking pictures!


Sunday Stillness March 1st

My laptop has died so I have to carve out time on my sweetie’s………hence little blogging being done. My friend Ann has come to the rescue, though, offering for me to use hers when she is not. So…….I should be returning with more posts and also more visits to your blogs now.  Yay.

In the meantime, this is a shot I took while seeing Cuenca by tour bus. I played around with it a bit today just because, hey, give me a laptop and I can lose track of hours….days even!


Windows Warmth

Back in Canada under the cold moon


I find myself longing for the warm sunshine and colours of Cuenca, Ecuador. For now, this is the best I can do:


but I will return, to take more pics, to soak in more sunshine, to spend more time with friends. To make a nest for us.

In the meantime, I can sort through pictures and share more with you. Stay tuned for some great street art coming your way.
