Much in Common

I marvel 
so little is required
to keep me entertained
birds, beasts, nature  
Crows are favorites 
We have much in common 
They can fly 
I long for wings
Height is an issue
but then
with wings
what's to fear?
And so
I send you this crow
who is
very possibly
observing its reflection
...I marvel
so little is required
to keep me entertained...

Common Ground

Though running at high speed the last couple of months, my trusty little Canon G11 camera is always within reach. It provides great opportunities for shifting into a calmer gear when needed. As the coming weeks lead into winter, things will slow a "bit" work wise, which means more energy for posting some evenings. And I can tell you, there are a LOT of images just waiting for their time on seamistandsunsets. 

This has been a wonderful spring/summer/fall for some of the local environmental events I participate in and others I've visited. Good weather days, good public involvement and a good deal of information shared with folks looking to make a healthy difference; one stream, one bird, one garden, one fish at time. Knowing that what we do individually impacts the world, gives us common ground. (No pun intended.) I have much of that captured in pixels and will be sharing it as time permits. They make me feel so very hopeful, these determined, hard working volunteers and committed professionals who move us forward. I'm honored to know many of them and to see the results of their efforts. 

So, a toast to those environmental volunteers, professionals and those of you hanging in here with me during my dry spells. I really appreciate your visits!

No opportunities for writing lately.
This gathering of letters will be my stand-in.
Yes...that will do for now.

A Gift

This sunrise, caught from our deck, was a gift. Now, only two weeks later, my morning commute is near dark. How quickly fall light shifts. Soon I will be coming and going in darkness once again. Not a bad trade off for the colors in the shifting tree leaves. 

Do you see the face just left of the blue waterfall of clouds? Mother Nature. What a card.

Hope All is Well

No time these days for jotting thoughts. 
Thankfully images don't need coaxing for posting. 
Hope all is well with each of you. 
Enjoy the week ahead!
