Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #807 – A nice greeting

140819DenBut_3479

It was a pleasant change to travel back to West Texas. We did enjoy the great sky vistas and the dry heat was nice for a change.

But as Dorothy so wisely repeated, “There is no place like home …”

We know few people here at our new digs, but I have never lived at a place that just feels so quickly and warmly like home.

Our evening walk was heralded by this lovely swallow-tail roosting for the night in our back yard. I wasn’t sure if he was there to just rest, or to welcome us home. I will take the latter thank you so much.

There is no place like home wherever it may be…†…monos en  theos   jim

“I made stupid decisions as a kid, or as a young adult, but I’m trying to be now, I’m trying to take this lemon and make lemonade.”

Somedays all of the stupid decisions can seem so hard to make up for! Here’s to not making sour choices!    en theos monos ††† jim

“The eye should learn to listen before it looks.” 
― Robert Frank

Oh gez, the more I learn about photography, the more I realize that I don’t know. Now, in the midst of my mindfulness, I have to listen for images also?

Makes me even more hard of hearing!

Stop, look, listen then make the darn photo.   en theos monos ††† jim

IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #706 – ENJOY THE CALM

“When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.

There is magic in its’ fragrance,
There is solace in its’ taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.

And the world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.”

~ Unknown author

I actually drink more coffee than tea. Yet, the alure of the romance of tea, the whole ceremony of brewing and serving pulls on me with a constant force.

enjoy your morning with the beverage of your choice. †  en theos ††† jim

IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #685 THE LONGING FOR…

“Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.”   Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our high is supposed to reach close to 90 degrees today. I wish I could just enjoy it and not pine for more. Knowing that winter will return and wrinkle any too soon growth. I somehow apply that logic to me and feel scared that even at my age I could prematurely bloom.

Our weather today is so pretty and yet it draws heavily upon my heart.

I wish and wonder for summers rebound.

A bud, a bloom, baby birds hawking for mothers return

I long to mount the road, a blue road.

Flowers abound away from urban sound.

I long for flowers and small roads, the fading of  human touch

To be adrift with the sound of nothing but the quiet heartbeat of nature.

enjoy your weather and our mother nature that is around in all seasons…en theos ††† jim

It is even a grander adventure and there is much more to be seen with fours eyes instead of two.

Happy Valentines day to all, may you enjoy it with the one you love, I will!   en theos †††jim

So yah, this is basically a page where you'll be seeing a whole lot of weird texts that come directly from a twisted mind. Hope to inspire some, and distract others. Shall I say enjoy? Have fun anyways, and stay just the way you are, cause everyone else is already taken ;)
