...darkness and light...

battling against darkness
is of little use to the seeker.
taking arms against the negative
brings the negative into your heart.
what you must do instead is let in the light.
~1,001 ways to live in the moment


today we find ourselves
wrapped in a soft blanket of mist.
with the sun patiently waiting.
to slip through the folds.
frost heavy.
leaves that can no longer hang on.
falling gently to the ground.
light + objects = shadows
join us down under for SSS.
have you caught your wish leaf yet?
just BE.

We so often see only darkness, not realizing that even the tiniest light that exists is such an affirmative thing. Dark and gloom is a big picture we seem to gravitate to, so we must savor the little bit of bright that is out there too...

Superb shadow shot for the day and your words are always a wonderful to start any day, Robin! Thank you for the light on a dark, rainy day! Hope you have a great weekend!

we have yet to get our first frost, and it was a possibility this morning but it looks like we escaped it again. there are a few green tomatoes still clinging to the vines out there. thanks for the lovely peek into your frosty early morning. I love the hint of the sun's back-lighting. happy weekend to you Robin.

You captured this leaf just at the right moment. The hoarfrost is crystal clear wuth the shadow superimposed on it. Great shot! Have a good weekend.

Exquisite lighting, cameo etching of shadow and kiss of frost on this leaf! The essence of magic! A wish leaf of romance and dreams!

That leaf is mysteriously radiant...

SHADOW, SHADOW

Shadow, shadow drawing near,
You are all alone, I fear;
Let me be your new-found friend—
I’ll stick with you to the end!

We ALL need to hold on those words and live it each moment of our lives. And, what a difference that can make in this world!
Thank you.

Oooooo...burrrrrr...we haven't had those killer frosts yet, one was close, enough to drop the tomato plants...but I know it's coming soon,
with a vengeance I'm sure.

Yes, we're having fun with the new shop, sold a skull yesterday...SWEET...to a student mortician, how cool is that, a really neat kid...he also bought spider soap...today I put the finishing touches on the brain soap, you can buy a 5 lb. whole brain soap and cut it off as needed...told ya we were gonna have fun...ha! I'll be posting shots of it tomorrow.

I haven't been posting comments much these days, my computer is running so slow, it takes forever to do it...not enough time in the day!!!
