The Flu Bug and A Blizzard!

I wish I had Bailey's energy today.
She loves the snow, and plenty of it!
I've been plastered to the couch 
waiting patiently for the blizzard of 2015,
with the flu.

Red Amaryllis

I bought a bulb.
At Target.
I planted it, watered it, and watched it grow.
And blossom
Added one secret ingredient...
That was Love.

Wolf Moon

A bright wolf moon
has been lighting up the night time skies.
With the holidays gone,
it's time to gear up 
for the return of our little rolling stone!
Her little baby girl shower is on tap!
Friends and family will be celebrating with us
this weekend.
Here's a wish of safe travels and Love to all!
Happy New Year!

Peace

"To enjoy good health,
to bring true happiness to one's family,
to bring peace to all,
one must first discipline and control one's own mind
If a man can control his mind 
he can find the way 
to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue 
will naturally come to him.
~Buddha

John Lennon

I will always remember hearing about the death of John.
We lived at Honey Hill Farm when he was assassinated.
I used to listen to early morning radio instead of using an alarm clock to awaken.
It was early morning when the  radio host announced that John had been shot.
Only twice in my life have I been this shocked.
Both times, a John.
Kennedy and Lennon.
Peace to all.

December White

There's something about white.
 In December.
It's quiet.
It's peaceful.
It's pure.
It's beautiful.

Color

"I found I could say things
with color and shapes
that I couldn't say
any other way-
things I had no words for."

Weather or Not...

The weather forecasters are busy today.
With an unusually warm day on tap,
they're keeping their eyes
on a chance of  a significant snow fall
just in time for Thanksgiving Day travels.
"Just before death
of flowers,
and before they 
are buried in snow,
there comes a festival 
season
when nature is all aglow."
~Anon

Feeling Grateful

It's been quite chilly here lately.
The winds have kicked up.
The leaves have all fallen,
The days are shorter.
Winter is fast approaching. 
We're getting ready 
To celebrate Thanksgiving
this week.
My heart is swollen with gratitude. 
And Love.

Pink

31 years ago,
I was blessed
with my own little bundle of pink!
I was certain that I would do things differently.
Time would be on my side.
I would sort of re-invent the wheel so to speak.
Boy, was I wrong.
Time flew.
From new born to toddler.
Toddler to teenager.
Before I knew it,
she was in college.
She was married.
Now, she awaits her own little bundle of pink.
My Birthday wish to my daughter
is 
time.
Time to enjoy all of life's little moments.
Time to enjoy life's big moments.
Time to enjoy her every moment.
Sprinkled with confetti!
Happy Birthday, Tiff.

In Blackwater Woods

Look, the trees
are turning 
their own bodies 
into pillars

of light,
are giving off the rich 
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,

the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away
over
the blue shoulders

of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
 name is, is

nameless now.
Every year 
everything
I have ever learned

in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side 

is salvation
whose meaning 
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world 

you must be able 
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to 
let it go,
to let it go.
~Mary Oliver

All About Pink

I'm sharing some excitement today!
I just learned from my little 'rolling stone', 
that in mid-March, 2015, 
we'll be hugging a sweet little bundle of  PINK!!

My Beautiful Buck

I've watched his velvet disappear.
And then he showed up with this.
Hunting season is never pretty.
He seems OK in spite of his wound.
I hope  he has good health.

His Velvet Coat

.

This handsome buck stops by
to gather some seed
and share his beauty.
He's shy and timid.
And beautiful.
He has lost his velvet.
I hope to photograph that soon.
He ran off this morning before I could get him.

Happy Monday!

Sunshine On A Stem

This little blossom,
well, it's really not little,
is one of my favorite photos from
the Summer of 2014.
In my limited travels 
to and from,
here and there,
I notice flowers.
It always excites me
when the conditions are ripe
and I have my camera in tow.
And I have time to stop!
I love flowers.
I love sunflowers.
I've seen many different varieties
popping up around here this year.
Yellow, Auburn, Copper and Gold.
This one is just beginning 
to spread her wings.
"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you."
~Maori proverb

With love and hugs.
