Walking along Lake Michigan’s shores in Chicago Lincoln Park I was graced with the springtime explosion of these bright cheery blossoms. “Hope springs eternal”; but here spring brings forth eternal hope.
‘Tis a joy to capture the wonders of the continual harmony between the earth, sky and water.
The science teacher in me is taken by these images all taken on the same morning a few weeks ago. They unintendedly show motion in three forms of matter: solid, liquid and gas. The “liquid” image stops the dramatic motion of an energetic Atlantic Ocean. The “solid” image is evidence of past motion of the sand. And the “gas” image shows seagulls and clouds aided by the winds above the Atlantic Ocean near the shoreline.
Too practical and sterile for the appreciation of God’s wonders for you? Me too. So I wish you a wonder-filled day as you enjoy the images for their grace and beauty.
Cool violet blues, pale greens, back lit by the calm afternoon sun. Soothing tranquility sets the mood as I enter. Silence is a respite, and this Friday afternoon, after several weeks of trying to work patiently through an unrelenting minor health issue while unsuccessfully attend to work like the professional I consider myself, the scene in my garden settles the chaotic voices in my mind.
My False Indigo has risen and bloomed. The smooth oval leaves and small pale flowers manage to remind me of life’s beauty and my multitude of blessings. Life is perspectives and I choose to embrace these grace-filled moments.

When the air is cool and the season warm, grasses and dew are nature’s instant breakfast.
