Welcome 2021

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “New Beginnings 52721” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The Ball has dropped and here in my little slice of heaven in West Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains the lights are low. Auld Lang Syne is no more than an echo in the forest. 2021 is just a baby. Like the goslings in tonight’s Feature Image the new year will take a little time to mature and find its grace. Treat the New Year well and it will grow strong and beautiful.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Looking Forward 2020-2021

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Looking Forward 120220” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The new light lingers on freshly fallen snow as I stand on the tracks and gaze along the steel ribbons. The perspective brings to my mind the flow of time as humans perceive it. The cross ties represent the seconds, minutes,hours or whatever unit you wish to break it down to. What really matters is the steps we take in the right direction. Over the past day or so I’ve been engaged in a conversation that has me looking at my past history and trying to explain how I got to be the person I am today. Of course there was a lot of missteps that affected my destiny. Places were stumbled and fell. But I got here.

I’ve tried to avoid the whole 2020 thing on my blog because I want this to be a place where we can come to enjoy a moment of peace. But whatever 2020 is it’s undeniable. I’m reminded of the picture that hung in one of my college professor’s offices. It was of a battered knight in dented armor with a broken lance and a chipped sword that had the quote “Some days the dragon wins.” That’s been 2020 for certain. However it hasn’t been all bad. I’ve had a lot of pleasant experiences in 2020 and I think if you try you’ll be able to name a few yourself. I have a friend who has decided that along with with 2020 she was putting some closure on her own past. She posted a picture of her journals in a bonfire. Symbolically cleansing herself of the person she used to be. She’s resolved that 2021 is going to be her new start in life. I think that’s a great idea. I’m probably not… no, I am definitely not going to burn my past but I think I just might in a small way put some closure on a few things that have been holding me back. It’s almost as if my foot is stuck in a few of those cross ties. Until I resolve a few things I can’t move forward to wherever those rails will take me.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Transition 2020

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “New River Gorge Bridge 113119” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

As I look up to the engineering marvel that spans the canyon before me the cold winter wind nips at ears. The New River Gorge sleeps on gathering it’s strength for the oncoming Spring. Even the river seems particularly tranquil as the cold water slips by beneath the Tunney Hunsaker Bridge.

The significance of this place on this day isn’t lost in me. I stand in a place of transition on a day of transition.

As I said the other day I make no resolutions for New Year’s Day but instead will make small course corrections throughout the year. In 2019 I learned that transition itself is a lifelong process. As humans we are in a constant state of flux. We’re either moving closer to our goals or drifting away from them. If we wait for one day out of the year to maintain course we’ll spend our whole lives adrift.

What will 2020 hold for us? Whatever we make it into.
