...there is no map...



“ there is no map.
you gotta write your own.
you gotta carve your own.
you gotta sweat, cry, grieve,
laugh, and love your own.
and when you're all done,
that's all that will have mattered. ”
~terri st. cloud

if you are a shadow chaser.
you would not be alone.
you would join us here.
when the sun shines.
this time of year.
it's a good thing.
cause it's appearance in the sky
is days of few and far between.
just BE.
robin.

I WANT SOME OF THAT...sunshine...not happenin' here, it's snowing again, I might just be late for work, there's no one out on the highway yet.

It looks so warm and country cozy at your house and the pair of warm fuzzy paws is also a dream, Scratchy kept me up all night with hives...GEESH...Benadryl to the rescue again!!!

Thanks for the coffee it was a welcomed treat!

Stay toasty Tilda, more chocolate should do it...for medicinal purposes only!!!

I think the one thing I appreciate about Fall/Winter is the color of the late afternoon sun and the shadows it casts. I think in the warmer months, we are too busy to stop and notice these things. Beautiful shots!

Are you familiar with the Weekend Reflections meme? This post would fit right in!

If you had a map,
how carefully would you read
the lines and squiggles?
