I just straggled in from school, after a long day at work.. more then just a little weary, so glad to see you all here, catch up with your day, see your photos, wonder who would post a new one, and show us the day...thought to myself, I hope I can find that Borders thread of Calmacs..let me see, where did I find that...so many new ones here, so many new faces and great photos..it is sometimes hard to remember!
And, here, it is.. this new series presents itself. I agree with Quentin , of all the series, this one is the one that soothes my soul..maybe it IS the colors, or the conture of Mother Earth, as she basks in the diming light. With the promise of sheltering darkness, and restful sleep..you know they say women look their best in candle glow, so too does Mother Earth...that gold apricot glow, mixed with the greens, blues..while the diming of the day continues. It always makes me happy.
With all the bad news in the world today, earthquakes in China, and Typhoons in Burma, Tornados, Hurricanes that ravage us all, it is good to see the earth at rest here, as she toys with the light..makes me believe, that all is well. Thankful that most of us are safe, scattered all over the face of the earth, presenting the gifts of the day to each other..if your passion is trains, ducks, lightshows, cars, cats or dogs, it matters not. That we tirelessly post, from photoj's critique, to Gordons vast knowledge, BPs birds, It makes me happy to see the things that make YOU happy... There is nothing as beautiful, to my eye, nor as restful as the Borders captured for us all..just to remind us it is our sameness that connects us.. thank you Calmac, for a beautiful reminder.
Well done, my friend, well done.
something for you..one of the best songs ever penned, by your countryman Van Morrison...this is the song that goes with the Borders..
