LIVING BLISS

Saturday Morning
 Afternoon
 Night
 Teddy Bear and Bunny Bear
watching "Doc Martin", with me in the rocker out of frame
~*~ 
Though I lack the art
to decipher it,
no doubt the next chapter
in my book of transformations
is already written.
I am not done with my changes.
-Stanley Kunitz-

Sunday Morning
 
Afternoon
.
 Evening
"Ada"
She had an extra ticket for the crosstown bus and gave it to me

 ~*~


Scatter in me the seeds
Of a thousand saplings.
Let grow a grassy heaven.
On my brow: a sun.
This bliss is yours, Living
World, and alone it endures.


 -Yi Lei-

Heading Home
 Looking back

Ripe Rose Hips
Dry and Save for Winter

NOTE
Mild weather for two days but the heat and humidity
returns Monday Night for the week...and, so it goes.

It’s been cool and bearable here, too. These are exceptionally nice pictures. Did you get a new phone or something? I liked the paired photos depicting different times Of day.

No cell at all...I'm using the Pentax Optio-550 and you may have given it me when the old one was stolen. Barbara H did too and so I'm not sure but I know it's been a wonderful friend.
