National Poetry Day

 

balboa-island

We love reading poetry. There’s something magical when you carry a book and take it into nature and read. We’ve also been listening to poetry on vinyl. You can hear the rhythm of the words, notice the silent pauses, while the crackle from the record echoes in the space. This Emily Dickinson poem is one of our favorites and we want to share it with you on National Poetry Day. As you read the poem aloud, it’s as if you can feel the motion of the ocean waves.

Part Four: Time and Eternity
CXLI

On this wondrous sea,
Sailing silently,
Knowest thou the shore
Ho! pilot, ho!
Where no breakers roar,
Where the storm is o’er?

In the silent west
Many sails at rest,
Their anchors fast;
Thither I pilot thee,—
Land, ho! Eternity!
Ashore at last!

Emily Dickinson

Crocheting by the Ocean

Lavender

We’re constantly inspired by nature that surrounds us. This yarn is called Lavender. We’re using it to crochet a shawl. We’re growing two types of lavender and daffodils, among many other things. Dried daffodils were used to tie sprigs of lavender.

Winter White Throw

“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

Our handmade white throw contrasts perfectly against any background, especially nature. It’s the perfect blanket to place on a couch, use as a bedspread, or keep in your car for outdoors. We’ve used them at the beach and forest as ground cover to relax and read. These throws are made of 100% acrylic yarn and are machine washable. They measure 5ft. W X 6ft. H.
