It has been over two years since we lost our home of 30 years to wildfire. Yet the loss sometimes feels as fresh as when it happened. It was the home where we raised our children and where in the last year or so we were there was also filled with remnants of our parents’ homes and earlier ancestors as well. People say “it is just stuff”, but it is much more than that. It is one’s history- encompassing not only ancestors, but the marking of our children’s lives in photos and keepsakes, and our own.
I saw this tree at our local golf course and loved how it looks like a heart.
A glorious sunrise makes a good reminder.
Another photo from Santa Fe. Quote by William Wordsworth.
Having a wide vista of sky yields lovely pictures; each day different and each one lovely.
This sunset scene looking east from the Walter Hansel Bistro parking lot was such a beautiful reminder of God’s goodness. We were headed into the restaurant with friends, after the husband’s miraculous recovery from an unexpected illness.
Daily Graces #317. If you look closely at the rock overhang, there is a man hanging over it taking pictures. !!! I took this photo on one of our trips to Yosemite; always beautiful, always awe-inspiring! This is from Glacier Point looking at Yosemite Falls. You can see both the lower and the upper falls here and some of Yosemite Valley.
Bringing in some fading hydrangeas from the garden I laid a few onto a piece of canvas fabric I had painted for a photo backdrop. Loved the look so took a quick few shots with my iPhone. A perfect foil for today’s Daily Graces post.
One of my very favorite Maui photos. So wonderful to be enjoying the morning and hear the clip clop of horses’ hooves coming down the road. This view looks out towards Lanai. Found the quote online; no reference was given.
So nice to put some of my collectibles back out on display as the floor re-do makes progress. Roses in the garden are in full glory!
