I wish each and every one of you, who make the time out of your life to visit my blog, a very – what fits you – merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, good Kwanzaa, good Festivus, pleasant (belated) solstice. Thank you very, very much for your patronage. I wish you a prosperous new year.
Another visual treat to help us through the dog days of winter. A gloriously blooming rose from my yard in Texas, on a December 17 many years ago. Coming across this photo after some years caused me to smile. Bitter cold days lie directly in our path to spring. I will do my best to appreciate them, to give thanks that I have a warm safe home, good dogs, and a partner, companion, best friend to share life with.
This Red-tailed Hawk rode the wind yesterday, graceful, silent, a pleasure to admire. It was lunchtime at work yet it was right to dash outside and photograph it, then lower the camera and watch with a smile on my face and in my heart as it continued to soar.
Make time to reflect on and give thanks for being alive, being in the world.
