knee deep in weeds

notes on a simple life

the marsh

“Ours is an upbeat, a hurried, hasty beat. It keeps pressing us to go farther, to include everything so that we can savor everything, so that we can know everything, so that we will miss nothing. Partly it's greed, but mainly its curiosity. We just want to experience it. And we do.”
― Agnes De Mille

we gather to celebrate her birthday in the marsh. she brings us together; eight
of her friends, from all corners of her life. i feel honored to be invited, curious and
available to what the weekend my bring . . .

i marvel at her generous heart, and how
she is able, and so willing to hold space for us to all . . .

i am unable to put it all into words, wishing to hold much of it
close-in and private. i turn inward towards my camera with walks when i need to, and open myself up,
over and over and over again; reaping an abundance of goodness from the woman she has
brought together. i learn to compost the past, and bring forth fresh nourishing soil to plant new seeds in.
seeds of my liking . . .
