Sunset Vibrancy

The sunset was amazing, tonight, ablaze with vibrant colors. No filters were used in these three photos.
I could not believe the fiery sky that I saw, while walking to my mailbox. I was in awe, wonderment, of nature’s beauty, her magnificence hovering above.
I took these photos, then stood watching, as the sky darkened into night.

I am grateful that I stepped outside when I did, and witnessed the sky’s beauty, its colors radiating before me.

Friday, is the beginning of the weekend. It is also the beginning of Shabbat, at sunset. These photo captures remind me to be thankful for that, and be mindful of the reason for Shabbat.

Thank you for visiting.

Curving Path



I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that? -Soledad O’Brien

Last Bloom

My canna lily plant is illuminating a bud for its last bloom of the year She has produced beautiful blossoms all summer, and part of the autumn season. This is her final curtain call.

Her leaves are turning yellow, as her time of vivid flowering comes to an end. Tears of farewell cling to the leaf. Goodbyes are difficult, parting is heartbreaking.

My outdoor plants mean so much to me, bringing joyous smiles to my face, each time I look at them. I nurture them daily, speak lovingly to them, gently pat them, trim their dead leaves and blossoms, and feed and water them.

They are not human, but they are living, vibrant beings, and I never forget that fact.

So long, my lovelies, until we reunite next spring.

Driving Around


This stream winds its wat to empty into the river. We crossed through the stream in a jeep.


Off we went, down a hill, across the stream, and back up to the other side!


The view from the top of the mountain was stunning!

Bridge Over River

We build too many walls and not enough bridges. -Isaac Newton

Bridges are happy, because they do not judge those who come to them. -Mehmet Murat ildan

Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.A. A. Milne

Thank you for visiting. I hope all is well with you.
