Deer Through Forest

Out of the Forest

Out of the forest came a creature. I stopped the car, and had to take a photo, through my rolled down car window. As soon as the lovely deer heard the camera click, he/she turned around and ran back into the forest.

I realized that Eastern thought had somewhat more compassion for all living things. Man was a form of life that in another reincarnation might possibly be a horsefly or a bird of paradise or a deer. So a man of such faith, looking at animals, might be looking at old friends or ancestors.”

Wednesday Photographs

Apparently, as I took the photo, above, the rainbow that was visible, split itself between the leaves and branches, and gave an odd effect within the finished photograph.

Much of the inner river area that runs near the lake (the Sepulveda Basin and Dam) is basically dry right now, and not high at all. We have had a bit of rain, which has given the Los Angeles River, that flows near the lake, a bit of water, but not much. The river is normally fairly dry in this area. The other tributaries can be fairly full, especially after a rainfall.

I have been busy catching up on some reading. I managed to finish two books.

I am about to go for my daily walk, which means that I will drive a short distance to the lake, and take my walk there, this morning.

After that, I need to run some errands, nothing of great significance. Once I am home and settled, I will write a couple of book reviews to be posted at a future date. I have about six to write, and hopefully I will finish at least two of them.

I hope you have a good Wednesday.

View in Winter December 12, 2012

view in winter

Winter views with barren branches
pointing skyward in the chill

Earth tones once green and lush
fade to naked brown in winter

The mountain dotted with snow
white breaths shining against clouds

They all await the spring
when flora and fauna thrive once again

When showy blouses and greenness are reborn
