3191 Quarterly, Issue No. 8 is our final issue in the 2011/2012 season/subscription. When I look at its pages I can really see where we’ve been and where we’re going. I hope you can see it too! We are excited for our next year of issues (limited subscriptions open on October 5, 2012) but I am enjoying sitting with Q8 for these coming weeks. You already know how I feel about Steph’s Branch Weaving project so today I wanted to show you a few outtakes from some of my Q8 pieces.

Up top: Film photograph outtake from Deep Spring. There is SCB, my oldest nephew, Miles, and myself sitting outside on a chilly May evening. It seems like ages since you were here, SCB. When will you come again?

Two up top: Film photographs from my piece about traveling to Colorado. The Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. Oh my gosh, I am still thinking about this museum. It’s incredible. I would go back in a heartbeat. I’m trying to figure out a way I can get back to Colorado asap!

Two up top: Film photographs from At Home. Miles in the morning after a sleepover (with his favorite cat: Scotch) and me holding the bottom of a lettuce. It was so pretty that I couldn’t get over it. Look at that pale pink!

Two up top: Photographs from a piece I did on our Leaf Collection. Miles and I had such a great time leaf collecting. We are going to have to do another collection this autumn. I’ll keep you posted.

I can’t quite believe that we have reached the end of August. Summer is not over, but, in our household, the ease and liberty of summer ends this week as we get back to school and work schedules.

September is not such a bad place to be—caught somewhere between nostalgia for summer and longing for autumn. It has been a great summer, not without its challenges and hardships, but exciting and beautiful and memorable, nonetheless.

We have fit in most of our favorite things. We have picked pretty much every type of berry. We have camped and hiked and swam in rivers and rocked in our hammocks. We spent hours on the road listening to Radiolab. We saw extended family and made babies giggle. We walked and biked our neighborhood. We slept in. We put fresh herbs in everything. We visited museums and saw amazing sights. We went to a movie in the park. We made smoothies and popsicles and called them a meal. We grilled dinner enough that we depleted our propane tank. Some of us grew a few inches. I shot rolls and rolls of film (a few shots of which I am sharing today).

While I am not ready for summer to end, I am ready for what is next. MAV and I have so much more to share with you. You may have noticed that A Year of Sundays came quietly to an end earlier this month. We have a new project up our sleeves which we will be starting soon. It is called A Year of Moments and will feel, I think, both startling new and totally familiar to those of you that have been following our projects all these years, stay tuned.
