One Observing

A Curious Person's Photographic Notebook

Still winter here

Still Winter Here

The sightings of spring daffodils, crocuses, cherry blossoms reported in other places, I envy. Here, winter still reigns. The trees, too, beseech the bright sun for their flowering. But no comfort comes.

Winter begone. We acknowledge your power, your spare beauty. But our hearts now require sweet warmth and lush blooms.


A Greeting of Light

This morning, sunlight entering a front window. A magical greeting.

Holy Ground

Wherever life takes you

“No matter where life takes you,
the place where you stand at any moment is holy ground.”
