Never are voices so beautiful as on a winter’s evening, when dusk almost hides the body, and they seem to issue from nothingness with a note of intimacy seldom heard by day.
~ Virginia Woolf
snow is coming tonight
a cold weekend ahead
perfect time to stay in by the fire
and decorate the Christmas tree
Wishing you all a wonderful warm weekend!
decorations have been brought down from the attic
each day I put up a few
taking my time
enjoying every minute
the tree will go up this weekend
sure would be nice to get a bit of snow!
And every year there is a brief, startling moment
When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and
Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless
Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air:
It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies;
It is the changing light of fall falling on us.
~ Edward Hirsch
on a clear and frosty Thanksgiving morning
bundled up in heavy layers
we took our traditional hike on the nearby lake trails.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
~ Melody Beattie
for your images
I am so grateful!
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!
And I wish everyone a wonderful rest of the week!
