“I climb the door instead of a tree
Just to crawl with myself walking free
What if I’m a lizard beneath my skin
Changing my colours of the human I’ve been”

Glistening Trees

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ~Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Winters in Vermont left me with some fabulous ‘ice covered tree’ photo shoots. Although I don’t miss the cold of the winter, living in the South, I do miss the fall and winter photo opportunities that the trees granted. I hope you enjoy these glistening trees with the sun gleaming through the ice and snow covered branches.

Life’s Like…

I prefer the quote, “Life’s a beach.” However, one of my Gram’s favorite sayings was, “Life’s like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.”

Sit A While

“When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?”~ Ralph Marston

Keep Going Little Engine

“I do not fear failure. I only fear the “slowing up” of the engine inside of me which is pounding, saying, “Keep going, someone must be on top, why not you?”       General George S. Patton
