When clouds visit the earth, I pay attention. I love to walk in the cool misty silence and feel the quiet stillness that is nature. All of our fragile treasures wrapped in soft cotton skies, just like I wrap my favorite family ornaments at the end of the Holidays. It is funny that sometimes, I feel I can see things more clearly when walking in a fog! I think this picnic table is just calling out for me to sit and enjoy drinking a warm cup of coffee and a beautiful dreamlike scene.
This is one of a series of images I took of a glorious foggy December morning!
It was Christmas Eve morning and I woke with a list a mile long of things to get done in preparation for company and the big day approaching. Then I took my pup outside for her usual routine and as hard as I fought the urge, I could not resist. We went in and I fed her. Then I grabbed my camera and was out the back door.
It was so peaceful, cool and quiet. Nature just seemed to tell me to stop and absorb the world around me. Stop and think about the reason for the celebration of this season. Why do I stress so much about trying to make things 'perfect' when just being together and paying attention is really all that matters! Look into their eyes. Listen to their words, their laughter, even their cries. Feel the warm hugs and the feeling that we are ok together. A room filled with love doesn't really need anything more.
And so, I enjoyed my time in the silence . . . and then I enjoyed my time in the loud craziness of family too! Whatever faith is yours, we are all one. We are all equal and we are all loved.
Thank you so much for looking at my images. I appreciate that very much.
I am very concerned with our environment and have decided to donate any money I make from any sales of this image to the ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE FUND.....because the Earth needs a good lawyer! We all need to speak up and support efforts to protect our environment. We will not get a second chance!
