monday night sunset

I took a walk out at Fumee tonight and then stopped at the Lake Antoine boat landing for pics of the sunset.  The first pic is from Fumee on my walk Saturday morning.  The next one is from my walk tonight.  The rest are from the boat landing.

black and white afternoon

These pics are from Dec. 22.  We went out snowshoeing on the south side of Big Fumee.  I got some nice pics of a pretty little creek that runs along the trail for a ways.  I decided they looked best in black and white so I converted them all for this post.

Lake Antione Sunset

I took this shot without realizing that my flash was on.   I think this one turned out kinda cool.  I’ll have to try this more often.




two choices

There are always two choices,

Two paths to take.

One is easy,

And it’s only reward is that it is easy.




perhaps love…

Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself.  Not to whom I want you to be, but to who you are.

~Antoine De Saint-Exupery~

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, Love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel

And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of change
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

~John Denver~



If the principles of contentment are not within us, no material success, no pleasures or possessions, can make us happy.

~Light From Many Lamps by Lillian Eichler Watson~

It isn’t necessary to search for happiness in far places.  It is everywhere around you and about you.  The quest for happiness is always in vain unless you can find it within yourself, within your own heart and soul.

~Maurice Maeterlinck~

Very little is needed to make a happy life.  It is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.

~Marcus Aurelius~



a winter’s tale

Some children of earth are privileged to spend a long and sunlit day in the garden of the earth.  For others, the day is shorter, cloudier, and dusk descends more quickly as in a winter’s tale.
