blue river, wilbur wright fish & wildlife area, henry county, indiana

In summer, we lounged in the river here and took respite from the heat. The river continues to flow despite the cold, it is nearly the only noise in the snowy wood. The energy of the flowing water keeps it from freezing solid. The sun shines brightly and warms us on the sides facing it. We continue to flow despite the cold.

i’m so happy that we were able to visit this spot again in winter. richard is right; the cool river and shade that the tall trees  provided was a much needed respite in the 90 + degree heat that day. but today, we dressed in layers and utilized the toe warmers  on the underside of our socks in anticipation of the 15 degree temperature. no matter what the season, i’m hopeful that i will always make a positive contribution to the flow.

How do you contribute to the flow despite the cold?

peace,

richard + julayne

Happy New Year

January 1, 2011


la salle county, illinois

happy new year!

as i was helping richard with outdoor chores today, i noticed the pink sunset through the slats of the old barn at the back of his property. curious, i walked into the barn and snapped the sunset through one of the knot holes in the barn wood. i thought it was a nice frame for the sunset.

my hope  for the new year is a simple yet abundant year full of good health, happiness, peace and love.

what is your wish for the new year?

peace,

julayne
