The sun has set for the last time –
Leaving behind the beauty of a life well lived,
And a man much loved.
(I’m taking a break from this blog for a couple of weeks due to my father’s passing.
I’ll read your comments, but not reply.)
The Our World meme will be up and running as normal.
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.
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.

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.

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 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.

It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac

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.

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —
That’s when the sky romances the earth
With its beauty.

Throw out the line

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

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.
