By Ted Grussing
… such a welcome presence and so I went for a drive this afternoon and went through some of the heaviest downpours ever … okay, I did have an appointment in Cottonwood I had to make, but I would have taken the ride anyhow just to be out in it and probably find an overview to park, turn the engine off and just absorb the beauty and sounds of the wind whipped rain … then there is the quiet beauty found within flowers like this Orchid I shot in 2015 … seems like someone is living within this bloom and disguising himself as a flower … or whatever your imagination tells you … a few tweaks to it and better than new.
Busy day coming up with a trip down to Phoenix and the real possibility of finding myself on the road in more storms … yep, I really love them! Some business to take care of and some friends to see, as well as checking out Lake Pleasant as I need to get back out on the water again soon. Hopefully the storms will raise the level in Watson Lake too, at least to the point I am able to launch my boat and get close to waterfowl and shore birds again.
Hope your day was filled with blessings, joy and friendship … just breathing is a tremendous blessing and should generate a smile or an outright grin … take a moment to think how great a gift that is. Have a beautiful day … lots of espresso too.
Lift my eyes from the earth, and let me not forget the uses of the stars.
Forbid that I should judge others, lest I condemn myself.
Let me not follow the clamor of the world, but walk calmly in my path.
Give me a few friends who will love me for what I am;
And keep ever burning before my vagrant steps the kindly light of hope.
— Max Ehrmann
