I don’t keep (as in maintain) a journal. I do have a journal–actually I have lots of gorgeous journals (all blank)–but I do keep (as in hold in a given place) a journal in my purse and occasionally I write things in it. What I find that I do more often, though–especially now that the iPhone takes such amazing photos–is take pictures.

Which means that often when I want to write about something here, I start with my photos. What did I take a picture of–and why?

I began this site in September of 2008 and I’ve written at least once about how I chose the photo at the top and the Annie Dillard quote. I had bicycled by the Days’ Cottages in 2006, 2007, 2009, but never stayed in them. They are outside of Provincetown, and my visits to the area always had to do with P-town.

The first week in June, I headed north to stay in these cottages, and over the next couple of months, I’ll be periodically posting about the six days I spent in my little cottage.

I also have lots to say about all the great books I’ve been reading (yes!)–not a bad one in the bunch. Is this because I’m tossing the ones that don’t grab me instead of finishing them? Interesting….

So pull up a chair and get comfortable : )
