of birds and baby blue


..."You have to see this close your eyes!"...

...I do and there is so much beauty framed within... that I gasp...
(words from The Gap Year by Sarah Bird)
Cacharel Fall 2012 RTW

The giant red arrow, lighted now and blinking, shoots through the a sky that vibrates with colors shimmering and bouncing like aurora borealis...
(words 
from The Gap Year by Sarah Bird)
Photos taken by my guy in September 2012

Compared to this every other sunset I've ever seen seems painted on. These colors-swimming pool aqua, pomegranate ruby, neon green- go all the way through like stained glass...

..."Do you like the sunset I ordered for you?"...

...We watch the colors fade to deep shadowy tones...

...Like we are alone together in a submarine on the bottom of the ocean with a view of a world that has been hidden from me until this moment...
(
words from The Gap Year by Sarah Bird)
Me in Autumn 2006 

...Soon the bright plumes becomes an indistinct fuzz, like the down of all baby baby birds...

... I walked into the great room and wondered why I had stopped allowing myself to appreciate the glorious light streaming in...
(
words from The Gap Year by Sarah Bird)
Me at the park in 2006

...watched a milky way of dust motes that float through the  radiance. Each particle was so precious and perfect...

The Gap Year by Sarah Bird

..."You'll be the best mother you know how to be.
 Just like your mother was the best mother she knew how to be and wasn't always.
 Just like you won't always be. So forgive her...

Forgive your mother, forgive everyone, but most of all, forgive yourself. Okay sweetie?"...





My art journal page written in October 2012

It rained all weekend, but started getting sunny yesterday, all sun, all today. I saw a large bird flying through the sky, with a large wingspan.

 
I asked J, "What kind of bird is that?"
But he didn't see it.

He: "It might be a vulture."
Me: "You're joking."

He: "They have vultures at my work."

Me: "Eww. Really? You don't hear that in Utah.
 Look there's a vulture."


Instead it's,

 Look there's a seagull, 
or a blue jay, or a robin redbreast.

  3. I love how you mentioned that the colors of that sunset look like a stain-glass, that's exactly what I thought of when I saw the pictures. The layers of color and the definition really reminds me of how the glass is laid out and I love it! What a beautiful picture.

  9. lovely sky photos taken by "your guy" ha..funny how you adress him on the blog...
    I love your art journal pages, and the handwritten letter is just beautiful, I have never been able to write like that, and it slightly pisses me off because many drawings I've had the urge to write the messages in that kind of font but I just mess it all up..
    I often see hummingbirds in my yard and like to pretend the come to me to tell me secrets..
    take care.. thanks for the comments on my recent posts :)

  16. I love the hat in the first photo. Blue is by far my favorite color and I like almost all shades of blue.

  17. I forgot that the color baby blue even existed. I never see it anywhere (except in the sky, obviously.) And I didn't care much for it. But now I'm thinking I'll give it a try, because all of those runway looks are adorable. The first is my favorite. That geometric print makes the color suddenly look so modern. I really envy you for getting to see all those 80s bands in concert. **sigh**

    May the force be with you.

  20. Ooo, I love the icy blue with the bright red lips. Perfect for winter. The quote you picked for the sunset reminds me of the sky I saw today. I was hiking and when I reached the top, the sky was the bluest I've ever seen it. Like, it was so deeply saturated, I thought I was seein' things for a moment. ;) I love the older photos you post, even if they're only a few years old. They're always so joyful!
