Journaling: Sweet impromptu river gathering - Elaine said she’d come over after work; I texted Linette who said she’d send Russ & boys & come after her haircut. Then Daniel called & we told him to come. Elaine brought Kyler. Lily got here amidst all the boys and called Rachel to join us. As it got dark and thundered, we started packing up. Isaac ended up heading over to the Miles’’ and staying over night. A perfect time in the sun and water on a hot, hot day. August 2012.

Design inspired by: http://shirotokuro.com/the-rules-of-typography/ I know it doesn't really look like it -- but I started by rotating the inspiration 90 degrees clock wise and arranging my photos in strips - as in this piece . . . and then it morphed.
