The seasons change, and we change. All things cycle, yet remain the same. An endless progression of birth, transformation, death, and rebirth, is revealed in the surrender of the warm and fertile months, to winter's formidable grasp. Pain may mark our rites of passage as often as joy, but renewal waits on each day's horizon.

  4. Lynda -

    This touched me... deeply -- both the image and the text.

    Thank you.


  5. Each stands alone, together they are very powerful and lovely. Thanks, I needed that today.

  6. Thanks, evlahos, KML, and merging point! Have a great day! Hope it's not icy where you are, as it is here...

  7. hi sparky and glorious hats,

    you have no idea how happy it makes me if my words and images have meaning for others!

    we each need to feed our spirit when we can. it takes courage sometimes just to look out at the world and say, "i still have hope for humanity."

    and sometimes the hardest thing is to have courage and hope for our own place in the scheme of things, and to say, "okay, i am blessed in many ways and i will continue to strive."

  8. The mystery is of quite another nature in your picture than in the one you so very nicely commented on in my blog (and much better expressed too!).

    I much prefer the mystery of spring than winter - having seen so much of it.

  10. Lynda you always have a nice way to frame the nature, and this is one of them. Nice post too, and so true. Anna :)

  11. lovely words Lynda...
    the perspective in your image is wonderful !!!
    it looks like paradise :)

  12. hello runee,

    going back a few years, i did not mind winter. i liked the clarity of it, and those intense orange sunsets behind the black silhouettes of trees. but the cold that comes with it, is no longer agreeable to me! (staying active helps....)

    runee, i think i saw at the Bussana Vecchia international artist's colony site, a "runee" who lives there. i was wondering if you have ever been there, or if you might be that person?

  13. Thank you very much, Karoly. I did check out your site. Good luck with it! The web is such a good place for marketing....

    Lynda :)

  14. Thank you, dear Anna. You always take wonderful photos yourself, and you have such a nice way of being positive and sweet, and a knack for sharing. I've enjoyed "meeting" you!

  15. This scene is in southwest Maine, Kim, which is now under two feet of snow! lol...

    So much for "Changes..." :0

  16. This is a wonderful shot, it almost looks as if all the seasons are combined into one shot.
