I was cleaning up and found a bracelet I made many years ago. A fun, colorful find on a rather gray day as we await the snow in New England. Be safe. Have fun! 🙂

Scarf1

Silk Cashmere Scarf modeled by Adina Richardson Lundquist. Photography by Rodrigo Larios.

You know me … the journey began with sunlight. It shone on the gold stenciled wall of Trinity Church in the City of Boston. The image had been digitally printed on silk before, and wonderfully so, but this time we were looking for something to be woven to enhance consistency in color and durability over time.  So, through good word of mouth, we chanced upon talented fashion designer Donna McNett, noted for her love of and background in architecture. She worked with the image, teasing out certain colors and characteristics, to produce an object of great beauty. The resulting silk cashmere scarf is warm in winter and cool in summer, and is large enough to be worn as a shawl or even a sarong.

It was a treat to learn from Donna as she shared her creative process along the way.  I am thankful for the different levels of collaboration that is possible in this day and age. Many thanks to Donna of DonaScarves for producing something exceptional in aesthetics, function and quality. Thanks to Adina Richardson Lundquist for braving the cold to model the scarf (and its matching cuff bracelet) and to photographer Rodrigo Larios for sharing his skills.

I glanced out the window and saw something drifting down from the sky.  At first I thought them the biggest snow flakes I’d ever seen.But when I went to the window I saw that they were in fact feathers. I looked up and around, and there it was on top of a nearby utility pole, a hawk feeding on its kill.

As I tried to focus my camera around the oak tree branches … thank goodness, they are still bare … the hawk stopped feeding, spread its wings and flew away only to be immediately replaced by another hawk. A mating pair perhaps.

These were large birds but it was not a sunny day so perhaps their outstretched wings which seemed so large to me cast no shadows down below and that’s why all the people standing on the sidewalk below the pole never noticed nature at work above them.

I am indeed perplexed by this world today – the ugliness, the violence, the pettiness, and the thoughtlessness – but I do find serenity in the woods.

three birds amidst the berries

Even as I compose this post I hear birds around me in the cityscape and so …

… I think I shall rise to go outside with my camera and see what birds in city branches I might capture on this beautiful day.

These birds, berries and branches were photographed this past weekend in parks located in Boston, Newton and Saugus.
