red berries missed by the birds?
winter is over, heat and humidity looms, as the live oak tree throws pollen to the wind and Baron suffers from his multitudinous allergies
I look down at the fallen leaves that crunch under my weight…SNAP!

“When you are old and gray and full of sleep, and nodding by the fire, take down this book and slowly read, and dream of the soft look your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep.” -William Butler Yeats

For anyone still coming by my blog, be happy I didn’t post anything during the month of January. The political atmosphere in this country (USA) has caught me up and wrung me out. And this is only day 18 of the new administration, with 1424 days left to go.
So far an in-law has stated that people that believe as I do are “whiny and hysterical.” A senator from the state of Florida has stated that people who believe as I do are “left wing extremists.” I offer no apologies for believing as I do. I will understand if anyone ‘following’ me wishes to ‘unfollow’ me, that’s the beauty of the button.
I reserve the right (until it’s taken away from me) to state my opinions on this blog. Be assured that I lean toward a subtle approach (most of the time).
So here we are…today…6 February 2017. And after seeing the post of someone I follow I decided to take the quote they shared and use it as my mantra for the remainder of the year. The quote,
“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” -Thich Nhat Hahn
I choose to spend my year photoing/drawing what’s happening at earth level. However, I will not be taking my eye off of what’s happening politically in the USA.
Theanne L Crossett and Baron
PS to Ste J, I’m rereading ‘1984’
