On The Edge Of Changes

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Golden Days 63020” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

A little goldfinch carefully explores the trees near the creek. He most likely saw me coming ling before I knew he was there. Unwilling to abandon the hunt completely he continues to search for seeds and insects but he meticulously keeps as much vegetation between us as possible. The breeze carries the scent of mints growing in the creek and in the distance I hear a woodpecker laughing. The sunlight has taken on a yellow tone that’s mirrored by the colors of the wildflowers. Soon sprays of goldenrod will dot the landscape in some places and create a yellow sea of bloom in others. A longhorn beetle floated past my peripheral vision and disappeared into flowers and I know that somewhere on my mountain a large buck is cruising the forest preparing to scrape his mark into the landscape. In spite of the humidity I’m seeing a few leaves falling into the still lush forest floor. By the track of the sun it’s less than a month until Fall but I’ve already seen Asters starting to open their eyes. Change is a progression of little seldom noticed events. Sometimes it happens so subtly that we don’t really know we’re in the middle of it. But if we can just look up from all the distractions of the artificial world that lives in the box on our desk or the box on the wall or even the little box in our hands we can gain a better appreciation of the time we have and what it means to be a part of the natural world.

Subtle Signs


As the dog days of summer slip away into ether of the past I find myself noticing the changing color of the light and the world around me.  A golden hue is subtly ebbing it’s way over my mountain. The yellow flowers of the black-eyed susans and pale yellow of wingstem foretell the turning point of seasons and in just 48 days old Sol will grow weary and begin to sleep late. Already forest sees the young bucks with their antlers thick in velvet as they spend less time with their herd and in solitude seek out the unclaimed grove which will be their kingdoms. Image Titled “A Secret Gathering 81019”

My  fascination with the natural calendar begain as a child laying in bed in mid summer.  In those days we lived in a double wide trailer and no air conditioning except for windows that would crank open to vent the heat and screen that kept most of bugs out.  In August I would often fall asleep to the sound of the Katydids as the cool night air spilled into the room bringing scent of change with it.  The old timers would remind me that when Katydids started to sing it was more or less 6 weeks until Fall. In the natural world change is seldom as noticeable as turning the page on a calendar but instead it’s the small subtle signs that whisper clues to those who listen.

The Graceful Visitor

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Graceful Visitor 71020a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Delicate wings dance gracefully across the quiet country road on a warm breeze. She seems to hover for a moment over the hood of the big blue truck that’s stopped. I couldn’t help but think of her as a living smile happily seeking lives to touch. A messenger of God to bring good cheer at the end of the day. She sails down the sunbeams and comes to rest on the black-eyed Susan. She only hesitates there for a moment before finding the next soul to bless. A moment was all that was needed to be a source of peace and joy.

Where Sunshine Gathers

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Where Sunshine Gathers 63020a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Golden light soaks deep into the earth and there it takes root. Throughout the cold and rain it sleeps and grows awaiting it’s appointed time. The days grow long and warm. Like draws like as the sleeping light awakens pushing it’s way to the surface. One by one they open and release the sunshine back into the sky. And we who are bound to the Earth are caught up in the flow of the light which warms both body and soul.

A Day On Peter’s Creek With The Quiet Ones

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled ” Black-eyed Susan and Daisy Fleabane 63020a”and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Days are special in my Appalachian Mountains. I have really become accustomed to the reletive isolation and tranquillity. I sat next to the country road and listed as a bluebird made his calls going from branch to branch. I could only catch a flicker of blue feathers through the canopy. However that wonderful song in the warm breeze is still carried in my heart. As I open my ears and draw the song into my soul I also find a few gold finches on the other side of creek. They too stay deep in the leaves. I take a deep breath and pull in the scent of rich earth on the edge of the forest. With my eyes closed I can feel the rays of the sun gently caress my face. The wings of a grasshopper buzz by my ear as he floats over my shoulder and towards the bright yellow flowers to my right.
Soft and delicate the flowers just seemed to be quietly waiting to be noticed. Who am I to deny them the adoration they deserve?
