IF – Capture

Capturing Memories. Available here.

i started this piece after writing my last post. her little heart reads “remember.” funny how it all comes out.

we are headed up north tomorrow for a camping trip for the remainder of the week. we are so looking forward to the nights in the campground, which is on the coast, playing scrabble in our tent. during the days we’ll be surfing (me, included), lounging, reading, hanging with each other and our dog, bella. and the best part? my good friend ali will be joining us (all the way from the east coast) with her fiance. good times, good times. i’ll write when we return, pictures included.

Sending much love,

    this is a great piece. perhaps she is remembering something sad. the words in the background help create that feeling. really nicely done.

    Gorgeous. I like the colours in this piece. There is something melancholy about the lady that took me in. You can probably say that she stole my heart and make me fall in love with her.

    Ths is really lovely. I always click on your name because one of my best high school friends was Kelly Rae Tomayko. Your name always makes me think of her. Hope you have fun camping with your old friend!
