Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #891 – A Restful Glow

It is most alway fruitful when I decide to take a mindful stroll around my small grounds. On a casual glance, I will not see. When I don my macro kit and keep my eyes open it almost always becomes a seek and you shall find proposition.

With the oppressive heat, it is not until around 8:00 pm before the temp drops to a tolerable level. I spied this wonder about a foot higher than eye level. It became obvious that he was at rest for the night. He sat in the same place waiting imperturbably while I found something to elevate myself to his level. I was able to hold one of my lights back behind him to send light through his wings. It gave the heavenly glow to the photo that I felt in my heart.

Be in the Moment

by Rick Tocquigny, author of Life Lessons:

Mindfulness is a terrible thing to waste. If mindfulness is not your closest traveling companion, test yourself the next time you see a beautiful sunrise or sunset.
Can you stand still for a few minutes and watch our Creator’s artistic skills at work? Happiness and peace are staring you in the face. Tranquility and beauty are there for you to behold.

“Let happiness catch you.” — Angela Cartwright

I went out and was waiting to catch a full moon rise. I waited and I waited, and then I turned around and on the next sand dune to the west was the great red ball of life screaming at me like a little kid, “take my picture, take my picture!” Yes be in the moment, but also be aware of what is around you in the moment!!!!!!
