A wanderlustagraphy post about youth? or perhaps it's about activity in midst of a landscape. I'm not sure... but I enjoy how playful they are.

Hope you enjoy.


PS- The wanderlust bug has finally gotten the best of me. I won't be updating next week.
I'll be flying down South this Saturday to get into some trouble. It's Mardi Gras in Cajun Country. Aaaaeeeiiii.

Destruction of the land...
The great ones.. eat up (the land) of the little ones.

Last night in the New York area it was forecasted to snow up to 6". I awoke excited to see the blanket of fresh snow over my dirty Brooklyn neighborhood and all I found was rain.

Today's post is in response to my disappointment.

It's forecasted to snow tonight. We'll see what happens.

ps- I finally updated my wanderlustagraphy link section. Sorry for such delay!

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
~Khalil Gibran (from Death XXVII)

A mini-curated update on death and dying... organic structures... and life cycles..
in a subtle or not so subtle combo.

I don't have a bold statement for why I wanted these three together and felt they were at home together..
but I just had that feeling in me and went with it.
