2012.11.17 Beauty unfolding

There is so much about this crazy life to be grateful for -
so much goodness, so much support, so much life.
Even when the steps take great effort and the breath is labored,
there is beauty unfolding,
in shadow and in light.
~ Tracey Clark

2012.11.11 What the world needs more of

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows,
spectacular skies and serene lakes.
It has enough lush forests, flowered fields and sandy beaches.
It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day.
What the world needs more of
is people to appreciate and enjoy it.
~ Michael Josephson

For the beauty of each hour 
of the day and of the night, 
hill and vale, and tree and flower, 
sun and moon, and stars of light; 
Lord of all, to thee we raise 
this our hymn of grateful praise.
~ For the Beauty of the Earth, verse 2

2012.11.07 Those nice bright colors

Kodachrome, it gives us those nice bright colors
Gives us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah!
I got a Nikon camera, I love to take a photograph
So momma, don't take my Kodachrome away...
~ Paul Simon, Kodachrome


2012.11.05 Find its way back to me

And somehow
seeing that clear light break over the city
reminded me
that if clear skies can find their way back after Sandy's wrath,
then light
will surely find its way back
to me as well.
~ Adrienne Scanlon

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord is the rock eternal.

2012.11.01 After it is found

Creativity is not the finding of a thing,
but the making something out of it after it is found.
~ James Russell Lowell

And what did I find?  Trees and grass.
