...avoiding shadows?...

"do not anticipate trouble
or worry about what may never happen.
keep in the sunlight."
~benjamin franklin
keep in the sunlight.
to find the shadow today.
that's what we are doing at
no worries today.
just BE.

What a delightful shadow shot and the perfect words!! I may have a little trouble staying in the sunlight today as there isn't much, but there was lots of it yesterday and I did have fun! Always enjoy your posts, Robin! Have a wonderful weekend -- well, what's left of it there!

This leaf is delicate as it unfolds to capture the warmer Spring sun. In nature, perhaps even in out lives, there can never be shadows to struggle under without the beautiful sun giving us life. On balance, there is much more light than darkness. The beauty of the season allows us to think life affirming thoughts...

Keeper of shadows,
how many times must I hear it,
the keening of light?

LUV the new header, are they apple blossoms...is cold here today, no snow, but brisk, sweatshirt-kinda day. Covered my 2 tomato plants last night just in case, but all was well. Haven't planted them all yet, just to be safe, but boy the garden is growing fast, my Turk's cap lilies are over a foot high already, strawberries are budding and I am in paradise!

Gonna try and get that solarium(window shack) built this summer so I can have that rabbit hole and the dreams of a day in the sun. Barb is truly an awesome person, you would love her and her rabbit hole. I wish you could've heard the wind singing through the panes, it was mesmerizing!!!

Good day for coffee on the porch...out of the wind!

Hey Tilda...I'm singin' 'BACK IN THE WOOLIES AGAIN'!!!!!

I'm with Ben - why worry about something which may never happen? May we all walk in the sunshine - and keep a keen eye out for those shadows. Your image is simply beautiful.

Wonderful viewpoint of a tulip bud. I had to figure out what it was! Am I right?

EG Wow said...

Love the greens and the shadows that make the colour look even darker. Nicely captured.

I wish I could follow Franklin's insightful words. Unfortunately I am a worrier. Great macro! Joan

Hey Harriet said...

Very nice! I've been trying to keep in the sun today but have had to do a lot of ducking and weaving throughout the rainy periods!

Very true with the present generation.
