a few thoughts on details…

  After a very full few weeks, I gladly found my way back to the river on Sunday. Austin is home from NYC, and he and I both had lots to do for the coming week, so after walking a bit, found a space with a picnic table to get to work. He found solitude by the river’s edge. I stayed at the picnic table. I kept hoping he was being more productive than yours truly. I started to workRead more

Silent Sunday

So I took a long walk by the river today and wanted to share some of the sights seen. It was beautiful. I mean, it always is, but the newness and fresh colors just seemed to pop today. I snapped  hundreds of shots, but limited myself to sharing 10. (So here are 19, lol 🙂 )  A picture is the next best thing to being there right?!  Hope you enjoy the ‘walk’…   “Prayer should not be regarded as aRead more

And a man in a red coat on a woodsy path, along with a hugely oversized raccoon helped me “get it”, and speak it and do it…”speak softly and carry a big stick”, that is! You see,Read more

diversions

It’s happened quite a few times in the past few weeks. After dinner and a day of teaching, I’ll get in the car to run a few errands, and find that the car isn’t going from point A to point B in an efficient way. Nope,not at all. It seems to take the long way and end up gravitating to one of a few places with wide open spaces where I can see the sun going down..kind of melting intoRead more

Standing Still

I can hear it before I see it.  Some days it’s louder and faster and more powerful. Other days it’s slower and  more quiet and peaceful. But I can always hear it before I see it.  I know plants can’t hear. But I’m sure there’s some sense of the water raging by. And spiders hanging by threads inches from the waters edge….I’m sure that they are aware of the powerful force of the waves beneath them. And rocks,…more like boulders,Read more
