I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

I am dedicating this to my friend, Julia.
It amazes me to think about the people I have met on Flickr, and how I have learned so much about them and their part of the world. It's an incredible time we live in now where we don't have to be confined only to interacting with the people in our hometown. Now we can find people who are really like us and who share our dreams and aspirations, even if they live in another country or on another continent. Maybe you have to lead a secret life where you live, but here you can always find friends who accept you.
I often talk with Julia about the types of photos I want to take. We both share a passion for still-life photography. When my boyfriend gave me these Peruvian lilies for Christmas, I composed the fallen pieces into this setting. Julia always has a quiet, peaceful thought to share with me, and I'm sharing this with her and with you!
The book is John Burroughs.
