Dear Raul!

This is just beautiful :)

"Consider each seed", haha, magnificent.
Thanks for, once again, sharing!

Little children have Zen, down pat.

I've met Gabriel. He's many things - a steamroller, a mad scientist, a knee-slapping comedian, and a troublemaker. Zen he is not!

Love the picture.

Can't wait to see you and your family soon.

i love the poetry of this list, as well as the giant, abstract-looking apples in the background. He is beautiful, and to think he sat on my countertop once : )

I thought of your kids when I came across this site about 'counting' songs:


reminded me how my sisters and i use to sing "white corral bells" in rounds and how singing it use to bring equilibrium back in to our large (5) boisterous group
