...8.12.12...













brent james music
as i sit.
on the deck.
with the warmth.
of the sun.
the steam rising.
from my coffee cup.
the flag.
gently flowing.
in the breeze.
i am grateful.
that i am able to sit.
in my rocker.
and take in the beauty.
that is around me.
without fear.
i watch that flag.
and i am grateful.
for the freedom that it stands for.
and i am grateful.
for those who.
sacrifice(d).
breathe in.
a moment of silence.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.
robin.

hey pretty cool moving flag pics on the top...very fancy.
I love the shots with the red fallen bud on the white chippy chair the best.
Very reverent words.
From time to time I remind my children just how blessed we are to live in this country..and try to help them understand what it is like to live in other countries..though I myself can hardly relate or understand.
Cheers,
Leah

I agree! Gratitude abounds and am in awe too, of those who fight for our freedom. Something to never take for granted.

Woah, I thought I was seeing things as I started to scroll and saw the flag moving!


And what is that kitty doing in the tree? ;-)

Your commentary/prose AND your photos, Robin, are always superior work!!! And this is no exception. I especially like the kitten up the tree, and the lone fuchsia blossom on the deck.
