I found another road today. It was small but had lots of attitude. While the sun was waking up, stretching its arms and letting out a cheery “good morning”, I twisted and turned down this new path. It’s neighbor, a large stream, was the first to greet me with rushing waters, bolstered by the latest storm. A few horses were enjoying breakfast but were not too busy to give me a wave of their tails as I drove by. Old cabins, their fires just starting, were still sleepy eyed and not yet quite ready to be greeted. It was a beautiful drive. It was a replenishment of my soul and a reminder of how wonderful it is to be alive.
..i like this photo….
Thanks Suzana. 🙂
I love the words that tell the story about how the pictures came to be….
Thanks. Glad you like the words.

I don’t understand what you are saying.
It was meant as a joke im a little OCD about horizons being level
I guess I was just clueless on that one! 😉

David, you as well.
Wonderful photos. I love the horse one. Your photos make me feel like a five year because i always end up squealing over something in one of them. lol. And i agree with a comment up there , your words are awesome too. They often get overshadowed or overlooked because of your amazing photos, but i always take the time to read your intros because you always have something nice to tell. Hope you and Tod and family and pets have a very merry christmas!
Thanks.. Tasha.. Glad you like the photos. Thanks so much for your kind words. They mean a great deal to me. Hope you have a Merry Christmas as well.
