The greens are losing their grip
Softness fading to crisp
Forecast of coolness
Green becomes gold
and yet a freshness prevails
A change going come, embrace it!…monos en theos…†…jim

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.

“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
“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
