Sunset

Deep purple

One morning in late November,

Just as the ice was forming on the lake,

The houses on the far shore were lit up like a necklace of lights.

Dawn.jpg

One in particular was ablaze —

What a glorious view it must be from those windows!

The sun rose slowly

Turning the world into a tapestry of lilacs and pinks,

Stitched together with clouds.

The ghost of Christmas past

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.

This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar

About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy

Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.

A timely reminder that there is beauty

And  joy and light in the world.

Light burst

If the sky could be a musical instrument —

It would be a trumpet burst of light.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season

Full of light and joy and love.

September swim

September has been magically warm.

One evening, my daughter and I went down to the lake

For a sunset swim.

The dogs dived in for joy

While the sun cast its orange glow

On water and stone.

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake

Balloon.jpg

And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

Magical horses

Up on the Downs in Sussex, England,

On a magical sunset evening —

Layers of golden hills

Glow like jewels

While horses graze

And rainbows sparkle.

Romancing the earth

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —

That’s when the sky romances the earth

With its beauty.

(Picture taken in Ericeira, Portugal.)

Throw out the line

And catch a beautiful

Summer sunset.

(Lots of events planned over the next coming days, so I won’t be able

To visit your blogs. But thanks for your visit!)

Sunset surf

After the heat of Lisbon,

It was wonderful to escape

To the seaside village of Ericeira in Portugal.

We stayed in a beach house

With gorgeous views of the sunset

And surfers gliding over the golden sea.

On Thursday, I’m flying off to Portugal again with the kids —

Time to enjoy Lisbon and then

Off to the beach for

Surfing and sunsets.
