A Marvelous Journey—-Monday, October 30, 2017

“A poet, a weaver of dreams, a man who makes glory from nothing and dazzles you with its making”.— Mary Stewart, The Last Enchantment

I remember I was in the 4th grade when I decided I liked to write down words. AND I liked the words to tell stories.

I grew up in a family of readers…both my grandmothers always read to me…one grandmother would read the newspaper comics to me, the other (a 1st and 3rd Grade Teacher) would read Little Golden Books to my brother and I, PLUS tell wonderful imaginative stories about her childhood in San Angelo, Texas.

Our parents were readers, therefore supplying my brother and I with all the books, comic books and fanciful reading material they could afford.

The Library was our friend!

I got my first camera in the 5th grade. A camera which used film, that had to be developed — took eons to get back and sometimes the photos were so poor they weren’t worth keeping.

As time progressed I finally had the ways and means to put both media’s together, via a blog.

What a joy!

To bring together the photos of clear or cloudy days, small brilliant moons, or violet-rose vaulted skies, or when pink light flooded our farm.

Together with WORDS!  What a marvelous satisfaction.

Then to bring both (writing and photography) these things together in one place to share with you I was finally able to share this shining place Terry and I call home.  Our farm.

A place that rests within our souls and breathes softly on twilight winds.

I thank you, my friends for allowing me to share our lives and the farm with you,

Love,

Linda

  1. I think it is us who should be thanking you for sharing your pictures and words – and your loving heart (and, of course Boomer) with all of us.
    It would be wonderful to have open space like that, not something that’s possible where I live, the sky circumscribed by buildings or trees and street lights hiding the stars. To be able to look across open land, to expand from the cramped views. It’s a joy to see the sky photos, the vista across the farm, to read your words.
    Thank you, my friend, I am truly grateful for you.

  3. It’s such a gift to grow up in a family where books are loved. And isn’t blogging wonderful: I too love images and words equally, and to be able to bring them together is a great joy, so I know just how you feel. I always feel happy when I see your sky photos especially.

  4. You do such a wonderful job of both and together they make everyone who stops by a little happier for having done so. How very fortunate to have both sides of the family be readers. Books add a whole new dimension to our lives. Today’s photos were wonderful and I loved the quote. Have a great Halloween.
