I wish I had some inspirational words to go with these images but I think their tremendous beauty is pretty inspirational. I miss the Anhinga of Florida.

We got rain here. I’m hoping for a weekend reprieve. Meanwhile, the novel moves forward. Peace.

Quiet Christmas Moments

The National Battleground was closed on Christmas Day so we stopped by the Cemetery. I’m sure it wasn’t everyone’s idea of a fun way to spend Christmas afternoon. But we’d had lots of fun for a week. A visit to any cemetery with a long past history is always a treat for me. I wonder where we will end up next year…..

The cemetery is filled with unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers

Sometimes I am drawn to the epitephs, others just the sheer age of the grave

This tree looks like it found a place to die..

It’s just like a stone neighborhood

I Mean It’s #SoCS!

For Linda Hill’s #SoCS prompt today.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mean(s).” Use it with or without the “s,” any way you’d like. Have fun!

Mean:

C31EB17F-5308-436A-AEA4-27B96A077025

a) to have in mind as a purpose:  intend

Those stairs are steep and I mean to climb them!

0CFC7AD6-8A50-4598-BE8F-DBB8EE3D6F1A

That bartender, I mean she knows how to mix a drink!

 

b) to design for or destine to a specified purpose or future

Nature was meant to be loved, cared for and protected…

2)

a) Lacking in mental discrimination: dull, contemptible-often used in negative constructions as a term of praise.

”Dismantling the government is no mean feat. “

b)  characterized by petty selfishness or malice

”a mean, surly man”

 

C7A04F45-F5E6-4BC5-AE19-CC00CC705C08

3) excellent, effective

”That restaurant makes a mean seafood platter!”

4) Occupying a middle position, intermediate in space, a position between extremes.

 

Serving as a means, intermediary, something intervening.

 

A middle point between extremes.

 

 

By all means (most assuredly: certainly) we can accomplish great things when we work together.

Okay Dan I think I’m ready for those technical words now…

And that beer!

Don’t Fly Away/#SoCS

One might not even notice the brilliant, elusive winged mystery darting to and fro among the blossoms like an effervescent spinning rainbow of magical grace and wonder.

Can you see her there? There and gone too soon. Every evening at sunset she arrives and dances, but is only there if one takes time to notice…
