The Brief Opportunity For Joy

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Skipper In The Mists 82821” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The late summer is a time of haze and mists for Appalachia. What ever rain falls is quickly recalled by the sun and soon rises up from the mountains giving everything an ethereal feel. The little butterflies and bees waste no time between showers and the Ironweed nectar is irresistibly sweet. They’re drawn in to it like gravity. As I approached the feast with my lens they are too compelled to feed to be concerned about the giant hovering a few inches from them. And a few even decided to test my bright red shirt just in case I too was one of the blooms. Late August and early September is often a wet season and the little ones know that the break from the rain is temporary.

We should consider that own opportunity for living is always limited. There are always seasons of joy and seasons of sorrow. If the little butterfly was afraid to risk being caught in the next downpour he’d stave to death in fear of clouds. But instead he boldly snatches every second of joy he can find. We too have times and seasons when opportunity seems limited by circumstances but I think that we can learn from nature and aggressively grasp every single moment of joy presented to us.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Announcement 2.0

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.

I want you to join my group on MeWe:
