postcards from squam

art-awayoflife
the above photo was actually taken in provincetown, though i thought it appropriate as the opening shot for these postcards to you…

art really is a way of life…
as important to me now as breathing.

and how wonderful it was to go to SAW and be surrounded by such beauty & creativity. sometimes, i wished the magic few days would never end though in my heart i know that if i could have this all the time, some of the sparkle would wear off. i also know that i carry that magic around inside of me and can connect into it whenever i need.

speaking of beauty, check out the breathtaking view from the dock outside my cabin at squam lake… i’d been in for an early morning dip and was in the water, floating quietly in the stillness of the morning as the sun rose over the horizon. those are my footprints along the dock as i jumped out to also try and capture the beauty of this place in order share it with you.

i realised on this trip that i AM a little bit country (not sure about the rock ‘n roll – i’ll get back to you on that one). these boots were found in provincetown and they completely satisfy my alter-ego’s cowgirly desires

a little bit country

i’ve got a couple more posts coming, as i want to share with you some photos from a couple of the classes i did and tell you more about the wonderful, wonderful people i met. hopefully you can get a sense from these few photos of how inspiring and suited the rockywold deephaven camp on squam lake is to getting the creative juices flowing.

    girl… you DO carry magic inside you. it’s what makes you shine and draws people to you like a spell. that’s it, i WILL have to move to london ha ha. that way we can go off on photo expeditions throughout the city and top it off with soy lattes. love, love, love you.

    It really does look like a beautiful place and appears to nourish so many people on so many different levels. I think that I may have just drooled all over my laptop while looking at the picture of those sx-70’s ;-)
