Into That Darkness Peering

Darkness there and nothing more.
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before

~Edgar Allen Poe, excerpt from "The Raven"

Sun Dogs at the Dog Park!!!

This photo is a personal triumph for me. Catching sun dogs intentionally has been something I've been trying to do for ages but not managing to achieve. Sometimes I catch a sun dog without trying; that's always exciting. I really don't like the look of sun dogs (or most things) added into a photo with editing software (or apps, are we supposed to call everything an app now?)

Anyway, this photo makes me happy because I tried to catch the sun dogs and succeeded. I also think it's a beautiful photo of the river valley landscape and sky.

I makes me happy.

Laid Back in his LayBak

You browse books. I browse DVDs. We all have our own ways to relax and feel mellow.

Tiny threads, talons of death
Curling, clawing from above
Insistent, conspicuous
Life lives in leaves more lush, more bounteous, replete
Ignore that which demands, imposes, commands attention
the courteous, unobtrusive always offers more
the aesthetic, the emotional, the warmest genuine embrace
when you are ready.
to see past the dead, the gone, the pain.

For Jennifer
