From all I may be……

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, 
There is a rapture on the lonely shore, 
There is society, where none intrudes, 
By the deep sea, and music in its roar: 
I love not man the less, but Nature more, 
From these our interviews, in which I steal 
From all I may be, or have been before, 
To mingle with the Universe, and feel 
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

Lord George Gordon Byron

some days……

There are some days when I think I am going to die from an
overdose of satisfaction.

How the light gets in………

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything …….That’s how the light gets in.

~Leonard Cohen

two eternities…….

The meeting of two eternities, the past and future….is precisely the present moment.

There are things…..

There are things that we don’t want to happen but
have to accept, things we don’t want to
know but have to learn, and people we can’t
live without but have to let go.

Sunsets, Sunrise and Boats

Sunsets, Sunrise and Boats

Since I love sunsets and sunrises with boats….I thought I would post a few of my favorite ones.  They always bring back such fond memories of warm summer evenings or crisp autumn mornings….

Smoke is rising from the chimneys and drifting in a lazy stream across the bay on this crisp fall morning........

A warm summer morning.....all is calm

One of my favorite boats.....the Ferry to anywhere!

Leaving Lopez at sunset.........

Even little boats are

Tug boats too......
