Pieces of brightness from the weekend:
- We celebrated Arlo's 12th birthday.That was a good day, for sure. You can see him in the photo above with his requested chocolate cake (with chocolate ganache layer inside) and candles glowing. Not pictured: his friends around the table and cold midwinter outside.
- I found this colourful bright wool rug in the op shop. Woven, geometric jewels.
- I've been listening to this album quite a lot these days: The 9th, by David Kilgour and the Heavy 8s, with poet Sam Hunt. So rich in sea and forest imagery and local history, not to mention New Zealand landscapes at night, and other magical thoughts.
