hello spring! words by e e cummings, music by mozart and flowers lovingly captured by teamgloria


it’s spring!

firstly some music!

and now some poetry – intermingled with flowers that we took yesterday on a walk with who-we-are-in-RL for her birthday.


Spring is like a perhaps hand 
(which comes carefully 
out of Nowhere)arranging 
a window,into which people look(while 
people stare
arranging and changing placing 
carefully there a strange 
thing and a known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

e.e. cummings


O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have

fingers of
prurient philosophers pinched

,has the naughty thumb
of science prodded

beauty       .how
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive

to the incomparable
couch of death thy

thou answerest

them only with


e. e. cummings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAbirthdays are getting easier and easier.

they used to be (almost) unbearably painful days for reasons we cannot divulge but which had (occasionally) nothing to do with us. the passing of time can be (if one lets it) be pregnant with regret or awful deeds OR – and here’s where we return to the sunny channel once again – they can be a deep but quite lovely Sigh about Everything that’s happened and what-is-about-to-happen-next and gosh-did-that-really-happen and did we get back to LosAngelesAgain (yes!), is who-we-are-in-RL now An Author (hurrah!)

in the meantime, there’s always mr. Mozart to wave us into a springtime of deliciousness…..

isn’t Monday always filled to the brim with potential?

we. think. so.

do you?

  1. I’m still adjusting to the Spring forward and now this, “prurient philosophers pinched”, which might explain it. Reading a wonderful novel on my Kindle and I’m 95% done. Better start looking in that cupboard of yours…

        1. *humble_bow*

          when Emerald has told you her last, do email who-we-are-in-RL and she’ll send some story extracts to see which one you’d like to read in the garden on a soft summer’s afternoon with a nice pot of tea from that splendid crazy teapot recently spotted on mr. instagram

  2. I am now pretty psyched about each birthday because I think, “Another year? Made it! Whoohoo!” and then I say thank you to the stars above et voila! ;)
    Bisous et merci pour tout cette beauté…

  3. Such delicious spring goodness! e.e. cummings is a favorite, especially this time of year. Happy belated to you. 1969 was a good year – I’ll be hitting that mid-forties marker, too, soon. I like to think that I look better than at 25! And my dear husband tells me it’s true (good man). Here’s to a year of amazing things for you! XO

do say something - do :-)
