Just a Closer Walk with Thee/Photography/#1LinerWeds

Being in Nature is the closest thing to worship that I can imagine.  In the presence of Creation I am humbled.  When I edited these photos, one of my Mom’s favorite hymns flashed through my mind.  And that is always my cue to listen.  I consider it her contribution to, and support of, my joy in capturing these moments of perfection.

News and Views/The #Free48

Last week was, well….was it just 5 work days? 

I spent my #Free48 (for those of you new here, that is my new word for weekend) doing a few projects and having some great creative time. I got some chapters finished in the book, added some touches to a painting, started a new watercolor project and even made a piece of jewelry!

I communed with bees, butterflies and even got out for a bit of a hike in the park today. I cooked a lot, got fresh sheets on the bed and managed to put the memory of that long week behind me. Just in time to start all over again.

Here are just a few highlights. I hope your days off were all you hoped they would be-and more!

“F” is for Friday, Fun and Forgetting…just what we did. 😀

I’m thinking of starting a rock collection. 🤔

Here’s hoping your next 120 hours be brilliant and painless. In the words of my dear friend, that Willy Nilly, Silly Ole bear….

Happy Trails! Oh! And watch out for aliens disguised as Threadwaisted Wasps! I don’t know if they sting humans or not, but better safe than sorry. Very elusive creatures…

Moments,

saved from

Nature’s tapestry,

woven in hues

of greens and blues….

Spun gold overcoats

and gossamer wings,

a thousand kisses

left on velvet blush

as the wind sings..

Embrace perfection

with tenderness,

cradled in your arms

it thrives, sublime!

Moments,

stolen unawares,

like precious gems,

seashells on the sand,

kept in heart’s

book of days,

and treasured

beyond measure.

How happy we,

the bee and me!
