Reflection Fun

A beautiful Spring afternoon
reading, snapping and enjoying the simple life.

Weekend Reflections w/James

Alice in Wonderland

Lucy and I were out and about snapping shots of nature;
When I spied this 'Pennsylvania Pothole' in the State Park
on the edge of a decided drop-off.
Some kind soul had marked it to warn other drivers.
Thinking the RG would be interested
I proudly showed him the pic on the computer.
When I turned to make a comment, there he sat
with a Cheshire Cat smile on his face.
I should have known.

Happy Rainy Friday

The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow

As it did today
and quickly hid behind the clouds

Today I am thankful that we can
know the sun is always there doing its job
seen or unseen.

Winding Road

This may have been the first time
I traveled this road in 
the 'rolling hills of Pennsylvania'

When I viewed this photo
I had this thought: I need to slow down.
(in thought, word and deed)

In days past I would have stopped the car and 
captured this barn without bi-secting it.
(although it is fairly well balanced 
as far as the tree is concerned)

resolution: This week I will stop and smell the roses.

In the Present

and thankful for the past.

Someone has said that the past predicts the future.
That comes to mind when I see the signs of
spring surrounded by signs of the winter that is passing.

♫ you can't have one without the other ♫

Daffodil Rescue

A recent snowfall creased the stems

Resulting in failure to thrive. 

By trimming the stems short

Their beauty can be savored.

Rough Week . . .

a little droopy
from snow and low temps

and the promise of more to come.

2He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ 3and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’
---Matthew 16:2

An adage appears in a poem by William Shakespeare. He said something similar in his Venus and Adonis (1593)

“Like a red morn that ever yet betokened,
Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field,
Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds,
Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.”
