A splash of lightning foretells a rumble of thunder as my big blue truck breaks through the downpour. The storms provide a welcome change from the jungle like heart and humidity of the Appalachian Summer. I’ve had a chance to leave my mountain and run a few errands in the Kanawha Valley so as always I bring my camera. After the storm passes I consider the golden dome of the capitol building with its magnificent oaks and historical statues but there is no inspiration for me there today. A quick side trip to the airport leaves me just as unmoved. Perhaps a few spots that I’m aware of on the river will have a good opportunity for me. And there along the public stream access I find the Loosestrife is in bloom. And it’s being visited by a flutter of little skipper butterflies. While they’re typically territorial today I observed that they were quite cordial and happy to share the pinkish purple flowers. Maybe it’s the fresh sunshine after a storm or perhaps like the name implies Loosestrife has some sort of calming effect on them.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
