Frosty Mornin

My daughter Lynz and I woke up to the most beautiful morning. We grabbed our cameras and slipped on our boots and ran out to take pictures in our bathrobes..sorry no pictures available of those episodes. We owed and awed, took picture after picture til our fingers were numb. Then ran back inside excited to download our shots and share the results. It is amazing something so cold can be so incredibly gorgeous.

Scenes from this week

It is very cold here today, my pond is frozen, ice crystals cover the foxglove,
this morning the sky was clear and suddenly dark clouds moved across, an amazing sight.
The last picture in the group shows scenes from my area and cards I gathered at Wednesday's Yacolt Meeting of Citizen's affected by the proposed BPA I-5 Corridor Project. It includes the picture of kayakers I showed Mark Korsness Senior Project Manager for this project. I will write more about this meeting soon.
Prior to the meeting I stumbled upon NATURAL OREGON by Dennis Newman who was kind enough to ask if I would send him a brief summary of the Yacolt, Washington meeting. Please visit NATURAL OREGON to visit Dennis and his wonderful writing.

I am very grateful for everyone who attended the meeting in Yacolt Dec. 2.
The effort people are making to pull together and help each other is impressive.

Our Reflection in a Flower

My daughter took these beautiful pictures at Clark College this week.
She also attended the Yacolt Primary Citizen organized BPA I-5 Corridor Reinforcement Meeting with me this week, helping at the sign in table, setting up chairs and enduring hours in a cold school gym. She is a flower I AM forever grateful for.
When we sat down to look at the pictures we realized her reflection was in the rain drops on some of the petals in the same way we are all present in every word we speak, every action we take.
Often it just takes a closer look to see what is Real.
I love the picture she took with the Clark College Pen beside it as writing seems to be a daily part of my life now and flowers always and ever will be.
I hope you get to take a deep breath today and take a deep close look at this beautiful world that surrounds you. Where will your Reflection be?

Beautiful Full Moon

I hope you get a chance to see the moon as I did last night during these cold and clear evenings.
We are having a meeting at Yacolt Primary School this evening @ 7:00PM regarding the BPA I-5 Corridor Reinforcement Meeting.
Say a Prayer for this beautiful place.
Thank You,
