The blue hour

Late summer is a time for the blues —

Time for the happy blues;

Boat

Time to gaze in wonder

At the ripples

Ripples copy

And enjoy a golden sunset

(And a dog).

Blue clouds

  16. How exquisite and beautiful. We are awaiting word from my family across the country to tell us that my darling 93 year old aunt has died. She’s in a place of waiting now, no hunger, no thirst, no conscious. These photos brought me such peace this morning. It’s a place I hope she is drifting. Thank you so much for an image that truly touched my heart.
