Reminds me of the front yard of Dorothy's house from The Wizard of Oz.

this picture is really something. i even like the way the shadows cast on the grass!

Lost

The joy and beauty of "women's work" have been lost to us.

Staying home with a child has become a betrayal to feminism; working, to the ultra-right, is tantamount to sin.

I've worked in an office all my life, and stayed home with a child. I can't imagine not having a career--but the pleasures of nurturing, and making a home, have been the most fulfilling to me -- as sure as the breeze that blows the laundry dry.

wow

my god, what a beautiful shot
