Saturday We Sat Within a Frozen Cloud — Tuesday, January 10, 2023

Nothing but silence

Generously filling every nook and cranny

Freezing onto eyelashes and animal fur

A cloud sitting on top of us, in way below-freezing temperatures.

(It was lovely)

Seasons are Always so Vibrant —-Thursday, December 1, 2022

But, one thing I really enjoy the most

And it doesn’t matter what season it happens in

Is when we get fog! 🙂

Momma always told my brother and me, that fog was a cloud that sat down on the earth.  What a joyful, and delightful thought it was when I first heard it, to even right now at my very elderly age!

At Some Point —- Sunday, May 22, 2022

“At some point in life, the world’s beauty becomes enough.  You don’t need to photograph, paint, or even remember it.  It is enough.” — Toni Morrison 

When I was little my Mother used to tell me, that whenever we had fog (Fog is a rare and beautiful thing here in the High Mountain Desert)

That a cloud came to Earth for a rest.

Saturday morning, we woke to a cloud sitting on our part of the Earth; resting.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

 

When the World is Full of All Things Possible — Thursday, November 4, 2021

Just before the sun comes up

When the sky is grey and the earth still black

Or when a lovely, wet grey cloud sits down on the land

I can feel the God(s) at work, walking among us

Then as the sun starts arriving–the magic grows stronger and stronger

The first shafts of light trim the horizon; the very air starts singing with the ancient songs of Earth, Wind, and Sky.

My heart, my mind, my soul lifts my personal melody of joy blending into the tingling vibrations surrounding everything.

From my heart to your world,

Linda

 

A Cloud Sat Down on the Farm —- Sunday, October 3, 2021

We woke up to fog one day after the rain

The world is all silent and close

Moisture settling all around us, and on  us,

The quiet washing the world anew!

From my world to your heart,

Linda

Our World Woke-Up in a Cloud — Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Tuesday Morning, we woke up in a lovely cloud

The air dense and thick; all sounds muffled even unto silence

Creating a twilight land

I enjoyed walking about in the beguiling silent-fog filled light

What a soothing way to start the day.

Raptured by Frozen Fog — Monday, January 6, 2020

The fog as been beautiful the last two days

So thick and dense clinging to anything it possibly can—making me feel lost in a wonderland

I love being out in it…the air so heavy it settles on my skin, hair, clothing

Gradually the sun starts to burn through the frozen frost making the corn bales look like french knots on an embroidered lacy field

It takes a while for the earth to brighten and melt, but for a short lovely time our farm and the surrounding area feels like another time

Another planet where everything is impossibly different

I love being out in frozen fog; for the peace it brings

Then it melts and scatters; leaving the blue, blue sky.

It’s all love for me…there are so many things to love—right here, right now.

Clacking Trees —Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Winter brings an interesting phenomenon

Things which are unusual, at best, seem to occur

With a slight more bit of frequency

Winter has it’s own glimmering twilight, so different

from Spring,

or Summer,

or Fall

The colors are much different, filled with lavender instead of hot oranges

And the trees sigh, instead of sing—swaying and clacking in the cold.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

Soft Echoes in the Air —-Thursday, January 17, 2019

, A cloud sat down on the farm today…it was lovely and beautiful

Making sounds soft and close; the feeling tranquil

And just so you know…there is always one!

Yep..always.  And she can jump an electric fence just like it isn’t even there, not even touching the toe of her hoof on the wire.

The Earth Surrounded in Wrapping —- Tuesday, November 6, 2018

Yesterday morning we woke to fog

The sun peaking through more like candlelight that sunshine

It was beautiful!  The earth so much warmer than the air, decorating everything in rich drops of moisture

A wee cloud filling each and every crevis on our farm. Interlacing each building and piece of farm equipment together creating a secret, but trusted spot.

From my world to your heart,

Linda
