i love you in the morning and in the afternoon, i love you in the evening underneath the moon

so today we slept. i mean we really slept, perhaps more than any one has ever slept before. well ok that may be an exaggeration, a habit of which i think i am prone to, but none the less there was a lot of sleeping and i am simply making sure that point is known. last night however, there was not nearly as much sleeping as one would hope. i think that goes a long ways to explaining todays activities. i don't know why but cohen felt it necessary to whine from his crib every 2 hours last night and no amount of singing, rocking, or feeding was going to put him back to sleep. he was a man with a mission and that mission was to drive his mom a little crazy. the mission was accomplished.

i silently willed him to fall asleep and lucky for me my wish was granted sometime around 10 am at which point he fell into a deep slumber that lasted most of the day. it was around noon that marko and i decided to join him in bed for a family nap that carried on well into early evening. i couldn't believe my eyes when i awoke and saw the clock. some days are meant to pass without hurrah. today was one of those days.

so i found myself thinking about photographs this afternoon, more specifically what your photographic style says about you. i would hate to think that i am one of those "type" of people who have to find some deep philosophical meaning in everything. sometimes it is fun to ponder though. take me for instance, you may have noticed that i have a tendency towards macro photography, that is i like things up close and personal. if i had a better lense i would get even closer. i like to take the large and see it small, to disect the detail. but there are others who stand back and see the larger picture. they take the shots of the skyline, i take the shot of one window in one building, the horizon reflected in it's pane.

so does this say anything? the obvious answer would be that i only see the individual, i don't see the larger picture, how we all connect. but i am not sure that is true. maybe it is in the detail that i am trying to connect us. this philosophizing is a fairly inexact science i think. but it still makes me wonder if i shouldn't be taking more pictures from "back there" so that one day i can look back and say that i saw the space and where we all fit into it. this is as close as i got today, which i must admit isn't very close at all. i am working on it though.

Beautiful day! I too stumbled upon your blog looking for this darn song my 2-year-old has been singing today...where the heck did she learn it? Yes!!! She's singing skinamarinkedinkedink, skinamarinkeedo. Thanks for the reminder of those beautiful baby days when life stands still and everybody catches their breath....they are very few.

I too was looking for the origins of "skidamarink", I really feel like there was a part of my childhood when I heard that song. It now haunts me and I need to know where it came from!

I am a Grandma that loves this song and trying to find all the words. Lily, our granddaughter, was visiting us and she sang this song often with some of the words...she's 4. I had her sing it to me off and on because it is adorable and find myself singing the words she sings..enjoy reading your sight, too! I will treasure this song even at 60 yrs. old!! Thanks, Nan
