Love the light of the setting sun.

    A wild swan always swims towards a setting sun. Always. A short story, I’ll let you decide whether or not there is any truth to it.

  15. This is just sublime. After my own Mother’s Day post about the plight of swans, your gorgeous photo and the Mary Oliver quote really moved me, almost to tears. I’ve shared this with my friend Jo, who absolutely loves swans, and with whom I’ve had recent conversations about the importance of gratitude. She will adore this post, as do I!
