Ms. Brooke (someone you should know #3)

gold hill school.

there are friends i go to for advice
and others for comfort.
others for inspiration
and others for encouragement.
others i go to when i need to rebel

and then there are those i go to for shear play!

before Andrea introduced me
to Jonatha, she had told me that
she could see us being good friends, that we shared the same playful
spirit and the same tender like one as well. and she was right.


from the minute I met Jonatha, I was instantly transported back
to 5th grade ~ with all the mischief and laughter and wildness,
only that age can wear so beautifully.
and not a second later our eyes could both well up
as we talked about the goodness
in our lives and how grateful we were for
how things have turned out.

she has become a dear and good and TOTALLY FUN friend and i love her so.

Jonatha is on tour alot and we sure do miss her when she is
she is out rocking it across the world, so I keep her music
playing on my ipod and it feels like she is always close by...

Her new album The Works has become my all time favorite but I wanted to share some more
fav's with you this morning...

Love you Jonatha!

***P.S.Oh yes, JBro is teaching a class at Squam this september
so check out the Squam site if you are interested.

wild ride, canon xti

i never dreamed i would have found love
the second time around.
i never imagined someone like you
to share the rest of my life with.
i never thought i would be so lucky to
have such an incredible man by my side.

i am unbelievably grateful for the day you were born..

changing some.

at ginger's, last fall

“Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don't change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow.”
~ Woody Guthrie

the wonder years, 1978

we had camp outs in our backyards,
burned leaves on the edge of the street,
made forts by the creek,
grooved paths through the woods,
built jumps for our bikes...
we set free the toads trapped in window wells,
built tree houses with trap doors,
played ding dong ditch,
and kick the can,
and hoops,
and running bases...
we made chalk houses on the driveways,
tried digging to china,
and climbed ever tree that would hold our weight.

there were
no cell phones.
no computers.
no ipods.
no x-box.
no fashion demands. (uh, clearly)
no reason to stay indoors.
no texting.
no ridiculous schedules for sports and cheerleading and competitions.
no HBO, no DVD players in the car, no large screen tv's....

....and i do not remember ever being bored.

kitchen table wisdom.


"Everyone is doing the best they can--
not the best they know how,
but the best they can. So to judge
others by our own standards is always a mistake." ~Dick Sutphen

boy do i have a long way to go...
