raindrops on roses...

my days in california are coming to an end...i return to florida early saturday morning...the day i arrived (november 24) it was raining in southern california...i shot these photos of the roses in my son's garden...i love my camera...

when it rains in california, it is dark and depressing...there is a gray fog over everything...that is how i arrived in california in a gray fog...mentally, spiritually, physically...it has been a difficult year...and though i am down, i am far from out...i hope...

hope is all we ever have...to keep us inspired and creative, and actually alive...
this little strip off light...
twixt night and night...
let us keep
bright...today

and if tomorrow shall be sad...
or never come at all, we've had...
at least...today

i will be back on sunday...rebecca

Dearest Rebecca... it has been a long time since I have visited.... I too have been going through some trying times.... surgery along with other things going on... I sat here tonight and simply read like a book each post ...all a new chapter in that book ...one which I simply could not put down... some I read over several times...

You drawings and paintings are so lovely... your photos beautiful but I was struck most by the profound lessons you have learned along your journey...

I want to wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

HUGS
