about me


i am glad to have you here at a spirit of simplicity
my name is Kara

My husband and I live near Boston, Massachusetts in a quaint and picturesque harbour side town

which was established in 1629.

i am an amateur photographer 
and writer of poems 

a bard

i am a daily walker
i am a beach comber

and a wood-sprite elvish girl

i am a gardener

and a gleaner in fields

i am a part of the nature that surrounds me
 a singer of songs
and a lover of life
i am a farmhouse cook
i am a gatherer of sea shells and heart shaped rocks

  and people to love
and driftwood sticks

I am a bicycle rider

I am a help-meet
and a reader of books

i am a needle worker
i am a birther of daughters
 a mama to many

And a grandmother to two

i am a pre-school teacher

i am a wife

i am a sister

a daughter

a lover

a playful child

a lady of light

a believer that God is love

 i am a friend to all

i am part of the great tribe

on this one planet

i am stardust

  7. Oh ... this is a beautiful About Me page. You've give us such a lovely glimpse into who you are. Thank you!


  8. I love your page. It makes me want to walk with you on the beach collecting seashells and admiring God's creation in your part of the states.

  9. ...and that is why I am blessed by your posts.

  10. Beautiful. Nice to meet you Kara.

    I'm a southern girl, a native Texan, dipped across Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina and into New Jersey before descending back in the the warmth of the lower states. Home. Happy. Loved. Heading to the beach. To Read. To write. To reflect. To reconnect. With myself and the love of my life. 36 years later, he's still a keeper.

  11. Hello Kara, what a gentle place to ponder through, lovely photos and words.Like you, I too with my wife are islanders, all be it on a slightly larger one (aprox' 8 by 5 miles) gently being lapped by the seas of the English Channel, just off the north coast of France.

  12. Kara, I must bookmark you. Lovely. And I'm a tad envious of where you live!

    must be so rewarding.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
