Light. January 28, 2008

The air was good today.

It was light in weight, softly lit, rich and smooth.

I headed up to the High Country, looking for a stream.


The woods were untrodden, the snow cleanly folded.


The brook was mostly frozen, rising occasionally through dark holes to play crystal bells,


Some hollow and deep, some tinkling with the motion of the unfrozen ice.


Trees listened intently through their scars, aligned like patrons in a balcony, straining to hear the quiet scene,


As the light leans westward, leaving the pastel lichen to wait


…for Spring.

I know, it’s fungi and moss, but “lichen” just fit better 😉

I cannot tell you how spiritually and aesthetically nourishing I find your photos. For that alone I would bake cornbread! [I did put the recipe in the comments thread.]

You take us on your walks with you, and that is generous and grace-filled. You have a great eye.

Well, Paul just said it beautifully.

It love your words and pictures posts. So beautiful and poignant.

Holy gods, can you make an image with both your camera and your words.

Thank you.

It’s like I was there CR. Thanks for the great pics…again. Now, how about some more grub?
