I remember a night in early summer
the sparrows were swirling
the sky lit up with such intensity
we laid on our backs...just watching
bookending the summer
tonight's sky was the same...
sparrows still playful up above
and the geese joining in, soaring high on their way somewhere far
if we only would have known all that would happen, all that could happen, in just a summer
and holding tight
it is that time of year again - Roid Week on Flickr
nudging me and my trusty 600 to get out and about
to capture the essence of summer
summer's bounty - our produce box from this week's CSA delivery
and good old golden sunflowers in the evening light
ah, polaroid, how I adore thee...
took a long walk with a great friend
from aspen to crested butte
on the west maroon trail
my senses were overflowing
the intense scents of the forest and fresh air
the sound of the breeze through the trees and the playful birds overhead
the incredible lighting
and stunning views
a great way to spend a saturday
colorado often gives the gift of glorious sunsets
and this summer the colored skies have been a plenty
but there is something more here...
do you see it? tucked in the dark cloud -
the little window in the shape of a heart
or is it just me?
am i seeing hearts everywhere
because i am focused on the heart
because i am thinking a lot about love these days
because of my new perspective
all i know is this
i am so very grateful
it has been two months.
time has never felt so intangible.
i went to visit you at the beautiful spot where you left us.
i walked under the bridge and along the railroad tracks.
i found these sweet heart rocks as i thought of you.
i took them up to the shrine and placed them there.
and a little black and white butterfly visited with me,
flying all around me and finally resting right next to you.
it was nice to feel your presence.
i miss you so very much.
