Great views from a cloudy day...

Free, open air... Wings pounding, I frightened the whole flock when I crept close to water's edge to take the photo. Suddenly, the water glassed over, the air hovering... I suddenly wished I'd set the camera to film a video... Because, suddenly the photo op was "vanished" right before my eyes... It reminded me of one of those speak easies in the Twenties that quickly turns into an office... Boom!
I wanted them to know me as a friend, intrusive only to know them, see them better... The seasons changing temperament much the same, one slick day of balmy weather yields to a rush of wintry, wet rain... Tonight I light my candle, a wood wick that sputters comfortable companionship... Listening to the rising winds, the rain splaying on the tired wooden frame of this old house... I gather in supplies to comfort my restlessness. And by supplies, I'm afraid I mean snacks! And a book, a deck of gypsy cards.. A little date with Netflix... Ball of yarn, and the thing I'm missing is a cat. I guess I will just get an imaginary kitty tonight, name her Sally... For all my good cats have been Sally... (Except Amber...and Koga... And Boots... )



I guess it's time to settle my thoughts, come back to center, to tuck in my wings for the night.
 

Sometimes a few extra minutes and an ounce of grey weather allow me to focus, center, and have a little down time .....at a local lake, in my own little niche, within my heart.

beautiful words and musings and feelings... thank you for sharing them.

it's gooood to write things down, and send them off into the universe. (mundane translation--type up a post and hit publish. :-))

Great post, Gayla. Sometimes those stormy, cloudy days allow me to "nest" also. It is hard for me to do that sometimes because I always feel like I should be accomplishing SOMETHING. lol Hope you have a wonderful day----you blessed my heart with this post- xo Diana
