A Ride in the Country

Waiting for the larger light

Candle light shows a small and intimate look and sunlight blazes, but there is a larger light out there still to come our way and ignite our endings.  We are fascinated by the possibilities of all lighting, but this amazing … Continue reading

Nights Skies

I am told we never look up anymore. Out in the middle of the night with my dog waiting for him to decide a warm interior was better, I did look up at the sky. The stillness chilled me at … Continue reading
