-lake michigan--september 2011-

Time it took us--
To where the water was.
That’s what the water gave me.

:: the coffee shop

my favorite coffee shop.

i just can't seem to get over:

the old-timey stretch of street it's on.

or their chalkboard menu.

or their delicious veggie sandwiches.

or the designs they put in my latte foam.

i find myself always taking the same seat.

at the counter that faces the window.

sipping slowly from my mug.

sometimes reading a book.

or sometimes gazing out at the world around me.

there are always such engaging people scattered about.

who don't mind at all.

when you break into their conversation.

desperate to know the title of the incredible book they're reading aloud.

i find myself breathing easy here.

unfolded perfectly between--

its peace.

and its vibrancy.

:: quick garden tour

the garden. from Ashley Fauls on Vimeo.

i've never utilized the video mode on my point and shoot.

so i decided to give it a little novice go.

a "one take---less than 60 second" tour of the garden.

i love that space.

see if you can spot the butterfly...
