little lamb, Hope Cemetery, Kennebunk
Oy. I’ve been thinking about this post all day, but never got around to publishing it — it’s one of those days, you know? Better late than never with the post, I suppose…
Another cemetery photograph today. Somehow this stone practically reached out and wrapped itself around my heart and would NOT let go. I must have taken 20 pictures of it before I finally managed to tear myself away. Head stones for children and babies are always heart-wrenching to me (to everyone, I’m guessing), but this one especially touched me and I thought about it for days after. I think it’s my favorite shot from that day. Something about the combination of such a young, innocent death and the language on the stone: “A little lamb safe in the fold.” Perhaps because it somehow evokes the pain of loss and the peace of heaven… Anyway, I love it. I hope you like it, too.
Ok, how about some lovely flickr favorites for friday? Behold:
rain day – Yesterday was like this — just wet and rainy all. damn. day. I’m pretty happy to see the sun today.
stockpiling – Cutie-cute pin cushions!
words – Good reminder.
Huh. For some reason, I’m suddenly craving coffee. I think right now would be a great time for an afternoon pick-me-up, so I’m off!
Assuming we’re somewhat motivated to get some work done this weekend, I plan to have another progress report on the renovation next week. Wish us luck. Have a great weekend — see you next week, friends!
