berries & greens


all pictures SOOC.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. [Genesis, 1:1-3]

saw ... green grass, dotted with blueberry bushes, picked bare. weeds, grown high to neck level and skies so blue that the white of the clouds looked fake.
smelled ... blueberry scones, fresh from the oven. post to come.
heard ... heartbeats from hugs so close, tho sometimes not close enough.
felt ... dizzy from the winding roads that led to the berry picking, but then elation from the wide open spaces.
guffawed & chortled ... over inane, irreverent inside jokes only two loves can share & appreciate.
ate ... greens, organic & luscious, earthy & whole. {kale, sorrel, sugar snap peas, purslane}
listened ... bon iver and the Civil Wars. where have they been all my life?
commenced ... after a 4 month absence, finally picked up the crochet hook again & started a baby blanket.
whispered ... wishes for the future, observances of today, and stories of the past.

happy weekend, dear friends.

blueberry picking season has begun. enjoy these lovely berries the way God intended them to be: freshly plucked, ripe & juicy.

  5. Lan, I love your style - what you do, how you photograph it, and how you write about it. Now, if only blueberry season would arrive more quickly in the northeast. Then I could stop jonesing for a blueberry picking day like the one you had. Beautiful post!
