All Is Full Of Love | iPhone Photographer – iPhone Photography Article

All is full of love by Bjork has been in my head for a couple of days now. I don’t really know why, since I haven’t listened to it in a while.

I say fleeting because the leaf below the snow only looked like a heart…

My life has been much busier in Maine than it ever was on the west coast. Thats probably a good thing, but its gotten in the way of my creative time.
