Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #785 – TRYING TO KEEP MY EYES OPEN!


“My profession is to always be on the alert to find God in nature, to know his lurking places, to attend all the oratorios, the operas, in nature.”

Henry David Thoreau

I marveled at the simple majesty of the blending of matching colors. Wishing I could blend so well, to be able to match more than just my baseball cap with my shirt. I can only imagine this little beetle’s view of having such a seemingly coordinated place to fall into. To dawn my tuxedo (if I had one) and to just set atop a golden crown.

“Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.”
Henry David Thoreau

May you find a place that you may blend so well. ††† en theos ††† jim work
