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.

Snow on the Hills, and Other Moments

It has been a snowy, bitter cold few days the temperatures, today, ranged from seven degrees, earlier, to 13 degrees, right now, and dipping lower, again during the night.

Am I upset? No. i am grateful to be in the here and now, on this first day of 2022. The topside holds promise, for the future days to come. There is so much that I appreciate in life, and each minute, hour, day, brings comfort, joy, and satisfaction to me, in so many ways.

Those ways are difficult to articulate, but I am content, and feel loved, and cared for. I am validated by the very existence of those who surround my heart, my soul, with unconditional love. They have brought meaning to my hours.

My family, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extensions of my genes, bring me joyous moments that are not definable through prose, but through emotions. The same is true of my handful of dear friends, who I have known for decades.

I am excited to see what the year will bring, what memories will be made, what photographs will be taken, to document treasured interactions.

I wish you all a wonderful 2022, and hope it exhibits joy, love, and comfort to you.

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.

What Do You See?

Clouds always amaze me. Their beauty is illuminating, along with the vision/s I might see within them.

I love what I saw in this cloud. I turned my head sideways, and the image had me smiling.

Cloud art intrigues and amazes me!

I wish all of you a good week.

Sunset, Shabbat

It is Friday morning, which means Shabbat begins at sunset tonight.

Here are four photos taken last night, during sunset.

The first two looked somewhat ominous with those dark clouds. Then within seconds, the clouds moved on, and the illuminations that remained were pastel-toned beauties, with soft grey tones within the pinks and lavenders.
I appreciate all of nature’s sky scenes, darkness, lightness, sunsets, and sunrises. Sunsets appear distinctly different each day, and so do sunrises.

I wish all of you peace and joy this weekend. For those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom!

Moon Between

This very grainy photo was taken on May 26th. The full moon was nestled between two enormous clouds. I liked the brilliance of it, illuminating the bottom cloud’s edges.

Speaking of evening, Shabbat begins tonight. For those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom.

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for visiting. -Lorri
