Now That Was Close!

If I can stop one Heart from breaking 
I shall not live in vain 
If I can ease one life the Aching
 Or cool one Pain
 Or help one fainting Robin 
Unto his Nest again 
I shall not live in Vain
- Emily Dickinson

He allowed me to get quite the "close-up" - 
landing right where I was standing :)  


On The Hunt

"Nature” is what we see— 
 The Hill—the Afternoon— 
 Squirrel—Eclipse—the Bumble bee— 
 Nay—Nature is Heaven—
 Nature is what we hear—
 The Bobolink—the Sea— 
 Thunder—the Cricket— 
 Nay—Nature is Harmony— 
 Nature is what we know— 
 Yet have no art to say— 
 So impotent Our Wisdom is 
 To her Simplicity.
-  Emily Dickinson


No Expiration Date

The greatest thing about dreams is they don’t expire. They can lay dormant for years and when you pull them out and dust them off, they shine like new.
 ― Casi McLean

Monarch butterfly from my archives.  Haven't seen any so far this year -
 but I have seen the caterpillars. 


Keep Calm And ....

Mourning Doves preening - 
they are such affectionate birds :) 


Should I stay or should I go?

As I was going through some pics from a June outing, I saw this one of the Cedar Waxwings and the first thing that came to my mind was: "Should I stay or should I go?" by the Clash.

That was one of my favorite songs back in the late 80s. I thought it was fitting that I used a texture that had musical notes on it (right hand side) 
Anyone else remember that song?  It sure brought back some fun memories for me :)


Make The Right Choice

Every day brings a choice: 
to practice stress or to practice peace.
~ Joan Borysenko


Caught Peeking!

This new day is too dear, 
with its hopes and invitations, 
to waste a moment on the yesterdays. 
 ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
