2.12.14 – Seen: Stars and Word Game Loving Vikings

February 12, 2014


Thank you for all your sweet, generous, loving comments and emails. Tim and I both so appreciated every single one of them and felt buoyed up by the collective kindness. It does feel a little weird to just keep blogging in light of my last, very personal post, but, since blogging soothes me and is one way I organize my thoughts and feelings, I figure why not?. It also feels good to keep the rhythm of this blog going, even as the rhythm of my daily life is still a little shaky. 

Two things caught my attention tonight as being particularly awe-some.  One was these images by Alessandro Puccinelli.  I’d love to be tucked up inside that camper with Tim and Alex with all those stars shining down around us, a million miles away from NYC and the upcoming snow storm. 

The other, almost more wondrous, was the news that a 900 year old Viking coded message was finally decrypted and read “Kiss me”? I mean, what!?!?.  I guess it turns out Vikings loved to play word games … which tickles me no end.

Just wait and see… I may give up Brooklyn and pick up a new lifestyle in one of these! THANK YOU FOR SHARING THESE! AHHHH ! too much snow.

That gorgeous photo made me think of a blog post I saw somewhere…Erin of Elements of Style maybe?…about a place in Southern California that rents out trailers that sit on a cliff overlooking the Pacific. It really struck a chord with me. For some weird reason lately I’ve been very attracted to tiny living spaces.

Oh, Abbey! I’m just catching up on my blog-reading and so just seeing these latest posts. Sending you hugs and love. I admire your ability to write so powerfully and bravely about your pain and heartache. It can’t be easy to share these things but hopefully there is some solace in doing so, as well. Thanks for sharing your world and your humanity always with such grace. You inspire. Miss you! XOXO.

I’m glad you stopped by even with your hurting. The Viking code tickled me too. Perfect for Valentine’s weekend, the timing.
