teaching this fall.
has taken a toll.
somehow i wanted to put a brave face on things
so here i am.
i hate being photographed.
these are some of the doings here:
shanna leino sent me this lovely elk folder
which i didn't need
but wanted because it's beautiful.
it's slight curve perfectly fits my hand.
i love the carving.
there have been mornings
early, before sunrise,
of misty skeins
days of these, but only a few photos.
the ladies appeared when i wasn't watching.
and moss and lichen continue to make soil
here from asphalt shingles.
there are a few rose leaves holding on.
and my old windows badly in need of scraping and painting,
become a mirror for an autumn sunset.
my camera is not doing well
but this funky old door
in need of paint and unpainted
because i love the texture.
autumn winds are doing their part.
sweeping leaves from their deciduous mamas.
and the light in late afternoon is brilliant
if it's not raining.
we've had a long lingering warm fall.
on my drive to work i spotted something wonderful!
far off through thick woods
invisible before because of the thick leaves,
a BIG power line travels.
and on it
this glorious huge nest.
those are STICKS not twigs.
and what i thought was a raven quarking and landing in a distant tree,
appears instead to be a hawk.
i have been making long, large prints
for a large book.
round the place i'll know that fall is here.
