on my mind

Throughout the day Jenna and I had conversations about the nature of creativity and art, and art for its own sake and its commodification. And as I watched our children play I thought to myself, I hope they're able to discover and do what they will love.

I totally think doing what you love is far more important than anything else.

I love love love your photos, and dinner looks great!
Doing what we love will never be a chore or feel like a job.
I'm hopeful for my kids too.

lecia, i think that they will. you both are clearly moms who give them love and freedom and fill their lives with wonder. the rest is up to life itself. they would have to fight it very hard not to, though, wouldn't they?

these pictures are so wonderful. love that first one best.

Your market always makes me envious!

I have the same hope for my children - with an added caviat. I really don't want them to grow up with the feeling that they "must" do something. That's what happened to me, and it's something I still struggle with.

And yes, I would love to come visit sometime! In fact - I'm hoping my brother and his girlfriend will follow through with their plan to move up to your neck of the woods sometime in the next year. It would give me an excuse to come as often as possible!

What beautiful photos, and profound and intense words. I have the same hope for my children.

Such gorgeous photos. I especially love the HUGE Lego airplane in the first pic. I would have two very jealous little ones if I showed them that one :)
