The rattle of dry leaves brings a winter rhythm to the wind’s lonesome melody in the empty lake. I’m only able to tolerate a few moments of exposure to the cutting breeze. But the big blue truck has an excellent heater and I ease the lens through the small gap to capture the oak leaves as they hold the light. It only roughly two weeks until the New Light begins I tell myself. It’s my understanding that the Native Americans didn’t make a winter camp in the mountains of West Virginia because of the darkness. The gray skies and the mountain’s shadow can seem to be moving in on you at times. But the light of a good fireplace and the warmth of a close friend can make it easier to bare. While the truck is parked I open the lid of my thermos and the aroma of the coffee fills the cab. There’s nothing like your favorite warm drink on a cold day. The wind dies down a bit giving me a second chance to try capture the light in the leaves. It’s enough. I make my way back up out of lake bottom while holding onto the light of my own. The light in my heart that guides me and keeps me warm.
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.
