grain, puddles, azure typewriters, sunshine, blooming, iambic pentameter and the like.


film grain :: reflections in puddles :: azure typewriters :: a walk in the sunshine :: crocuses in bloom :: wind-whipped hair :: mountainous ::  iambic pentameter (below) ::

 morning light caresses the pure white sheets
I'm wrapped, tangled and nestled in.  The mature
 door - scented and dosed in oak smells - creaks as
 she enters, her braids frizzy, her small gown
hanging wrinkled, a smile adorning 
her small lips. This is but a glimpse, a sip, 
a dream, a fancy, of the simple life. 

This weekend shall be of breathing, replenishing, making poignant memories, praising Jesus, reading your wonderful comments, and laughing over mistakes.  What will you be doing for Easter?

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.  - John 11:25-26 

ps true story:  I was vacuuming the floor upstairs, with a small vacuum part, so I was on my hands and knees, scrubbing away at my bedroom floor.  My hair was brushing against my face, and somehow hair got in my mouth and got tangled on my tongue.  Carefully, I attempt pull the hair out of my mouth and it doesn't come -- it's stuck on one the papillae of my tongue!   And, it's still there.  I've cut the hair so that all that's left is a small 'stump'... and I'm hoping it's dissolve or come out soon.  :)  Yes, this all happened a few hours ago!  


  1. i love you so much.
    and about that true story: whoa.

    postscript:: a hair caught on your tongue? now that doesn't sound pleasant. :(

  3. I love this. The pictures of the typewriter and windblown hair are just lovely.
    For Easter I'm going to early service, then helping with second service, and I'm wearing my new kind-of-Audrey dress. Your little catastrophe sounds quite perplexing! I hope it comes off!
    Have a wonderful weekend of praising Jesus!

    p.s. As usual, I'm adoring your soundtrack-- in particular, the "Up Theme song". In fact, I just learned it on the piano on thursday, and have been playing in practically non-stop. :)

  4. That iambic pentameter was lovely. And all of these shots have inspired me :)

    Yikes! Does it hurt to try and remove the hair??

  7. beautiful post, acacia. :) lovely pictures.

    and that story is weird! i had the same thing happen to me, actually. :P it does feel really weird, especially if you think about it and feel it a lot. but take comfort; it does dissolve or break eventually! :D

    -mikailah @ come by and visit! :)

    1. That's so neat that you had that, too! I'm SO glad to know I'm not the only one. Actually, today, I woke up and couldn't really feel that harsh pinch at the end of my tongue... it was gone! I'm thrilled. :)
      xo, Acacia

  8. Mhmm, these are beautiful, Acacia! One of my favorites is the typewriter photo. I love the simplicity of it!

    And the true story? Jumping. Geraniums.
