YES, IT HAS BEEN A WHILE....



And though I haven't been posting about it, life has unspooled with rich variety, great joy, and enormous speed. I have moved, twice, but I am like that employer who looks all the way around the world and finds the perfect candidate for the job (the job being to shelter me) right in my own backyard. So I have settled once again--in quite different ways--in Rhode Island and New York. Moms Clean Air Force is growing strong, thanks to all your support. And I have Other Projects going. So I'll simply share bursts of photos when I can here, until I sort out what goes where, which, when I think of it, is one of the great challenges of life in general, to say nothing of writing.

All this to say, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, and I move more deeply than ever in slow love with this miracle of a world in which we find ourselves.



And I marvel at the ways people find to decorate the beach, knowing the tide will soon wash them all away.

We were here, these clam shells seem to say. And we left you something. We enjoyed making it but we didn't think too much about it; we scooped these shells into the sand, scalloped the edges of a picture that framed a long, wandering, rather intense conversation....

Or so I imagine the scene.

What more can we ask of one another that we move through the world paying attention, taking the time to care, and leaving behind gentle traces of beauty?

CONGRATULATIONS on your new "cabin in the woods" -- overjoyed you are able to find a new home in Rhode Island, for it's clear you love it so much and it feeds your soul.

Thanks for the beautiful art from the beach (and your great interpretation).

Love the shells, saw so many this summer, as my visiting granddaughter is completely obsessed with collecting them. I have them in pails and piles at my front entrance and back entrance. My granddaughter decorates them with sparkles and paint, giving them as gifts to everyone. I have them everywhere, loath to throw them away, they are in my kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms including under the beds and wedged between cushions I find them everywhere. A few went through the washer and dryer a few days ago! A constant reminder of summer gone by, and those summers long ago when her father did the the same thing.
