… nearly every year I get to send out a photo similar to this … nature’s way of expressing what she sees happening to the average person … governments way of spoiling the beauty of the rebirth that is Spring. Anyhow, I look forward to the opportunity of sending photos like this out. So, put it in the mail or file electronically … what’s left is yours until next year … second installment of property taxes come in two weeks, sales and gasoline taxes daily, taxes on communications monthly, plus, plus, plus.
A lot of gem work done today as I continue the sorting and organization of the collection … not my strong suit, but oh so necessary. Off to Sunset Crater in the morning and more shooting of the enchanted wood. Time with friends and time with One as she does her hunts … and when the day is nearing its end, some quiet time reflecting on the beauty of life and our tiny little planet … where is forever … and forever after that … or is it all now in the present?
Have a beautiful day … share a smile with those you meet and greet …
…I yield myself to the thousand enchantments of sky and field and wood,
and play again like a child on the soft green of the earth.
And as the God of the universe has made thee to bloom in tenderness,
so also may my heart be made to bloom again.
— Max Ehrmann
