Shadows and Light

The afternoon light through my old water glass windows makes these wonderful shadows on the wall.

Simple, everyday things. So beautiful ... and always there if you just pay attention.

I am reminded of the old poem by William Carlos Williams. It has been repeated so much, it has almost lost its original message. (But not quite.)

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

I was away for Thanksgiving too. Great to be back home. I had spotty 3G and missed your blog!

I love not only your outlook and views of South Pas but also your outlook and views of life!

When are you returning to your Patch column? I miss it.
