For 2012....

May your new year be bountiful,



and not too scary.

Happy New Year!

Was it light?
Was it light within?
Was it light within light?
Stillness becoming alive,
Yet still?

A lively understandable spirit
Once entertained you.
It will come again.
Be still.

Season of light

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

Random sightings

All that we see or seem 
Is but a dream within a dream.

Found items

As light as....

Not being a "tool" sort of person, I can only guess what this would be used for. Anyone else know?

Party, party!!

Always found during Fall.

Feathery mix

I wonder what bird left this?

Northern Flicker annoyed at our interruption.

Why a duck...

Something completely different

While attending a concert at the local philharmonic, we came across a couple of unusual phrases in the program guide:

"The piano plays short fragments that coagulate into the main theme of the finale..."

(Thank god the fragments coagulate; we certainly wouldn't want the finale to bleed to death)

"After the customary recapitulation, the composer launches an enormous coda..."

(Our cat has been known to launch an enormous coda from time to time)

A few scenes we came across during the weekend--

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil?

As always, your comments welcome...
