my name is maura. i am 30 something. forever wandering and wondering, in awe of the ordinary, constantly seeking color, contrast, music that begs for dance, a good book, conversation, someone to hold my right hand. things that top the list: making pictures, an unexpected smile, owls, freckles, half birthdays, lip gloss, peonies, poppies, chopsticks, yoga, rain, crickets, connecting dots, hand-written notes, long walks, cashmere, the silence of trees, new friends, the first sip of tea, sourdough bread, vintage dresses, dusk, farmers markets, mango. my gram says it best with sleep is delicious.
