A tree forms itself in answer
to its place and the light.
Explain it how you will, the only
thing explainable will be

You’re probably wondering how I managed to take so many photos on Wednesday morning after I mentioned that I wasn’t able to stay outside for as long as I would have liked. I did manage to get in almost an hour of walking and exploring before I had to do the responsible thing, and go back indoors to get things ready for the day’s events.
I like this particular series of images because of the way the sunlight highlights some of the trees or leaves or snow. Clicking on any of the images takes you to the slightly larger version. You may need to do that to catch all of the bits and pieces of light.
We might as well have a look at Back Creek while we’re out this way.
No one lights a lamp in order to hide it behind the door: the purpose of light is to create more light, to open people’s eyes, to reveal the marvels around.

The wax myrtles in the woods and the meadows were so weighed down by the heavy snow that some of the branches were on the ground, stretched across the pathways. Wax myrtles seem to be made to bend, not break. They all sprang right back up as soon as the snow let go of its hold on them.
Dawn is the time when nothing breathes, the hour of silence. Everything is transfixed, only the light moves.
~ Leonora Carrington
That’s it from the Wabi-Sabi Ranch on this warm and wonderful Friday. Snow? What snow? It’s all gone now. Rain, on the other hand, is on its way. Looks like it will be a very wet weekend.
Do you have any plans for the weekend? M and I will be working around the property and the house. I’m hoping to get a start on the yoga/meditation room. There’s a lot of wallpaper to be steamed off the walls. Anyone want to help?
Thank you so much for stopping by. A big hello and a very warm welcome to all of my new visitors and followers. Thank you all for your likes and comments and visits. I appreciate every one.
Have a great weekend! Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
