sunshiny wishes to savour every morning
and moony beams to go with the night wine
let the day start with, a feast for the eyes
and end with food for the soul



Beautiful post. Gratitude is everything. Good way to start out my Monday, thanks!


Lovely list, I think I'll follow suite! This is a great post project.

Oh, and thanks for the memories of Greenwhich Village...though it's been a long time, I once called NYC home.


I couldn't agree more about appreciating even the smallest of things. Today the sun came out in Chicago, and it warmed to the upper 70s - a good 20 degrees warmer than over the last few weeks. Very grateful for that.

Your apt in NYC looks as though it was a lovely, inviting place to hang your hat. Can't wait to hear/see more of your trip!

Lovely things for which to be grateful. I adore the idea of a yellow front door at your new house! :) xoxox

These are great shots! I love that August sign. Thanks for sharing!


Aloha Gillian,
I'm grateful to have you as a friend...and your mum too..
You're both to precious for words..
PEace, Kai


The first thing I did upon moving to my house was paint the door red. It is the only red door in the neighborhood. Your post, as you dear lady, is lovely.

I love signs too. I took lots of sign pics. Maybe I'll do a sign post.

Get it?

Sign post!!! lol

Aloha lovely.
You caught me in a lie. I said if I could have a second home it would be on Bleecker Street.
Well, I'd also take a second home in Hawaii. If I win the lottery, I'll have to choose....
aloha xo
and Mahalo for your friendship xo

Red doors are so exciting! You know that the person who lives there embraces life!

and may millions more fall on yours...we'll be rich together...! xo


I love your simple things post. I'm with you about snail mail, too. It's amazing that I don't buy online more often just to get more mail. I do love mail.


Simple things are best.
For me today it's this moment writing to you,hearing my grandsons voice in the background,my cool beverage,
a deep breath and feeling the love!

Gillian daSilva

Me too Relyn, love it. It seems so much more heartfelt!

Gillian daSilva

I was thinking of you this morning...wondering how you are doing! You must have picked up the vibe.xo


Everything on your list is the best!
A sacred space is important!



great images! tee hee why do they call it "Canadian" anyway? love your list and agree with you about the snail mail, nothing feels better than opening a letter from someone you love. Have a great Wednesday.


simple things are often the best for sure!


Neat-O. :-)

beautiful. simple is always best.


What a pretty and thoughtful post. I'm enjoying your blog very much! Found you through Christina at Soul Aperture.


"For any writer, photographer, or artist...a space in which to work can be completely sacred."
This is so beautiful. The simple things truly mean the most.

Can't wait to do this again.

PS: My heart began beating faster when I saw that first photo. It's positively stunning.


Isn't it funny how the simple things do ENORMOUS things for our spirits? I love the little journey through the Village. You're talking my language, Chica!!

Books, pizza, wine, yellow and red doors...let freedom ring, baby! :)
