… a great white egret takes to the air leaving the very cool early spring water of Lake Pleasant behind … crystalline and icy looking water droplets trail from the feet as they leave the surface of the water. Destination unknown.
The photo below is a fun one that I took after shoveling the snow from our driveway in Richfield, Minnesota … I think it was the winter of 62/63. Corky is seated on the snow bank enjoying the cool … that and several more winters in a row, two of which saw snow drifts to the eves convinced us to seek our fortunes in Southern California … we moved to Huntington Beach in the fall of 1967. I think we were 25 when I took this picture.
Side note: this was a very low quality black and white scan from a photo we had on the bulletin board at home and it was not in good shape. I used the new neural filter in Photoshop to colorize it and am amazed at the quality job it did … about 15 seconds!
Into the weekend for me. Enjoy the days as they come and share the joy you find in life with those you meet and greet. Life is terrific and we get to choose to enjoy it … no one can take that away from you.
