Sunset Peace

Seems that I have some type of activity every single day in the coming weeks.  I have signed up for too much stuff and all the stuff falls in rapid sequence.  I miss writing and thinking, but those activities will have to be put off until that "tomorrow and tomorrow" which in my life does not creep into a petty pace but pretty much rushes by like a full throttle ahead storm.  (Can you tell I have been reading a British mystery that includes a protagonist who is studying Macbeth?) 


Anyway, I have yesterday's sunset to share with you as recompense.  There is something so breathtaking about how the sun will reflect off the water bathing everything around it in golden light.  The skies do not reflect much color when there is low humidity and/or low air pollution as in the spring, but the air is so crystal clear that it compensates for the missing.

I know it's a cliche, but there truly is something magical about spring in the woods; and not just in the woods, but everywhere else.

I don't have the American kind of dogwood here, just the lower shrubs which are grown for their coloured winter bark.

I think getting away from the computer is a good thing at this time of year - I must get out there again and look around me and get my hands dirty.

Happy Spring!

It sure is easier to relax and take a breath looking at those photos. Just amazing. So gorgeous they bring tears to my eyes!

Your photographs are stunning, as ever Tabor. My goodness girl, you certainly are living life to the full - isn't it wonderful when we enter warmer climes?

Had to laugh at the Shakesperian reference!
