In This Vast Universe

“Your beloved and your friends were once strangers. Somehow at a particular time, they came from the distance toward your life. Their arrival seemed so accidental and contingent. Now your life is unimaginable without them. Similarly, your identity and vision are composed of a certain constellation of ideas and feelings that surfaced from the depths of the distance within you. To lose these now would be to lose yourself.”

~John O Donohue

In this time of refection and thanks I want to thank all of you for being a part of my life.

Love Ro


  1. Thank you for all the long walks and beautiful scenery, for silver texture leaves and stones set so beautifully they make me want to practice and practice the art of metalsmithing until I get it just right. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday week.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all in the Darrow home today...and may all 2- and 4-legged creatures have VERY full stomachs :o). (!)

  8. These photos are exactly what I've come to expect from you... re-imagining your world, finding hidden layers of creativity and looking very, very closely at all that is beautiful.

    I have been so thankful to have gotten to know you this past year, Ro. I wish we'd become friends sooner. I feel like I'm leaving too soon. Good thing I can still follow along on your walks via this blog! Oh, and I'm sure we'll be back at least once or twice a year to visit. xoxo

    I love you to pieces Lisa, and I am so grateful for your friendship and your contribution, you light up my days with your amazing spirit and your zest for life...♡♡♡♡

    I hope you had a good one too Sandi, I always appreciate your kindness.

    Isn't it something Harsi, to meet the girl practically next door right here. I often struggle with spending so much time on the computer but then there are times I'm grateful. I'm so happy I met you, a "kindred" one, tangled spirits love and respect for nature. I wish you all the best with your move but know this, the deer and I are going to miss ya.xoxoxox

    We were at the beach Lori just like you looking out over that vast ocean, giving thanks. xoxoxo
