this is my view. my vantage point on the couch. in the gloaming of morning. i think gloaming is meant to be evening. but i like it for the dawning of the day too. i haven't tidied or made the room camera ready, but that's ok. this is a very alive room. and there is no hiding it. now i have stella tucked against my hip under the quilt with me. i love catching these moments. it's one of my favorite things about my phone....there is rarely a moment i can't attempt to turn into a photo.
i just stepped out onto the porch to bring ellsworth in from his night wanderings. and although i'm barefoot and barearmed in a light little white nightie, there was only pleasantness outdoors. the light was thin and gray and i had braced myself to get hit with a slap of cold. but the air had no chill. even the floorboards of the porch on my barefeet were comfortable. i think the winter is behind us and may is bringing the scent of green and the sounds of life.
the windows are filling with light now. i love this hour as the day starts, the stillness and the quiet of night turning to day. oh, it reminds me of my favorite movie in the 80s. i can't help that i still love it. 'ladyhawke'. the medieval tale of a lover's curse, each of them human half the time and animal the other half, never meeting as humans, but living with their counterpart, a hawk and a wolf. and almost touching as humans in the seconds between night and day.
my day has arrived, and i think i'll head directly to the studio. and work in this fresh energy for an hour or so. before i dress and make breakfast and have a bath.....the routine can be such an interruption sometimes.
