30 Days::Day 7

Ok, so I couldn't pick just one photo today. This little guy is serious about his accessorizing. From laying each tiny piece of jewelry in the "correct" place, to diligently placing all 20 bracelets on ONE wrist, to finally completing his work and dancing a jig so cool I only WISH I could imitate his moves. Every part of it I want to capture forever because it all together makes me melt and laugh at the same time. He has that effect on me...usually...not to leave out the fact that he can also drag me to the edge of insanity
Today I was attempting to be some sort of domestic diva, what with all the cleaning and laundering and organizing I was doing. It was a bit exhausting...because stuff like that never works out the way you envision when there are two very curious, very lively young folks around to undo all that you have worked so hard to mark off your list. It is days like that which always send me searching for the camera...to remind myself what the "work" really is that I have committed to. After that, I usually talk myself out of one more load of laundry...or, the case today, I just overlooked that neglected kitchen floor once again.
What really matters?
I would certainly rather be dressing up with my babe and dancing aimlessly just because we like the way our necklaces sound as they click together.
I can acknowledge that there has always been a trace of this urgency in my mind of figuring out what the important things are in life and just doing them. When there are seasons that present themselves where I am NOT taking part in the immediate urges of my heart, I feel most uncomfortable and off center. I have been reading some really beautiful lists that people have made of things that they would do differently if they knew they only had a short time to live...I think I am going to make me one of those lists. Because, I am that kind of a gal...I like lists.
I am also really attracted to this idea of living boldly and with a song of kindness that stirs those we touch to start their own harmony.
I am adding this linky do to my side bar. I'm gonna start making my love notes tomorrow...and I am stirring around a lot of ideas on how to bring this hope revolution into the song of my heart.
Anyone wanna collaborate?

I just love his sense of style, adventure and freedom! I am glad you got your camera out for this! I can just imagine him dancing around to the beat in his head and the noises of his jewelry.
