Happy Sunday!

A classic layered landscape for Sunday…peaceful, but with enough going on to draw you in (imho:)). A homage to the quiet places and the quiet times in our lives…all too few these days. I have to make myself take the time to find the places, or find the time to find the places, but it is always worth it. I always come back refreshed and restored. Not a very original thought, or a particularly original experience…but then that is one of the things that affirms for me the fact that we are all children of the same creative spirit…the fact that there are few of us so dead that we can not be refreshed and restored by a peace we have not made…that in fact we can only break and not better…makes me more aware of the family I am part of, of the heritage we share. This is a good thing. And, given the befinits of the experience of peace itself, it comes as an extra bonus too. What a deal!

    Steve – how I wish I’d clicked on your name in Steve Creek’s website long before this. You are some photographer – and that you share your joy in nature and in being alive is such a gift. Now I have tons of beautiful viewing to go through as I review your blog – when it’s not crazy getting ready for Christmas of course… but I wanted to add that your message about finding the quiet peaceful places hit home.

    Last night looking at the stars while the dogs roamed sniffing out mice – and often despite cars driving by on my busy county road frontage or planes overhead… their are moments when the beauty of it all is deeply peaceful and breathtaking at the same time.

    Merry Christmas – thanks for sharing your gift!
