After The Churning

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha River 80420” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The sand covered trail leads me through ancient groves of oak, sycamore and elm. My foot slips slightly in deep loos sand as I step over the driftwood left behind by the last high water. The sun falls softly through the canopy occasionally illuminating native wildflowers on the edge of the pathway that calls me ever foreword towards a destination unspoken. Tiny mason bees are seen as floating duff that moves against the mild breeze. The trail continues to urge me onwards until I reach the open spot by the river. This is why the trail brought me here. I am delivered to the place where all the chaotic ripples of the falls settle into the flow. The place where the tumultuous past is separated from a serene future. Nothing is lost in the flow. The river is still whole in spite of being shaken by its drop through the stones of the falls. The debris that was gathered on its trip to this point has be broken by the rocks and deposited in the sand to be left behind. The churning that was had at the hands of the falls helped free the burden from the flow and river contines in peace having been cleansed. So to is lives of mankind. Those times of churning and chaos break up the debris that has gathered in our lives so that when we are settled we can leave it behind.

Sitting By The Kanawha River

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “By The River 71420” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The mighty Kanawha River rolls lazily through the valley making it’s way to join the Ohio River on its way South. The sheltering shade of the Oak and Sycamore invite me to escape the heat of the midday sun.Image Titled “The Alabama Headed Upstream 71420b”

The cloudless sky merges it’s hue with river as the unmistakable sound of a tow boat announces that a barge is moving back upstream for another load of coal.

It’s the Alabama. I know very little about life onboard one of these boats but I’ve always thought that converting one for touring the Eastern river system.

The boat soon motors out of sight and the wake subsidies once more into a consistent texture leaving me to settle back onto the tailgate of the big blue truck and enjoy the gentleness of the shade and river. And of course, watch the Cardnial as he returns to the railing of the old gang plank.

The Lesson Of The Sun Catcher

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Sun Catcher 42820” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The afternoon sun fills the valley as the big blue truck drifts along the berm of the Midland Trail. The Spring rain will return but for now the sundrops dance on the surface of the river giving it a magical appearance in my lens. The three rivers are swollen with the rain but not to point if rage. It’s just enough to cover the rocks and make it look more like a lake with three arms. Most of land is fully awake and the Redbud has dropped it’s bloom in favor of the heart shaped leaves. It’s those leaves that caught my attention. Backlit by the sun they seem to hold onto the light in a warm embrace. The light is their life and purpose in this world. Without it they cannot grow. But they can’t survive without the rainy days either. Even on the banks of the three rivers they would wilt and die without a balance of the rain and sun. As I gaze at the glowing leaves they seem to whisper the secret of becoming strong. It’s a balance of embracing the light as it is given and accepting the rain when it falls.

We don’t get to choose between the two and one without the other would be a disaster for us. We have to learn to rejoice in both.

At Rest

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “At Rest 21620” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

I’ve been told that if the devil can’t hold you back then he’ll push you forward. The modern world is constantly humming with it’s hustle and bustle and there seldom seems to be time to take a breath.

I look at tonight’s feature image and think about how chaotic and choppy the water seems to be. Like the modern world it never really stops moving with ripples that go in every direction and eddies that swirl around threaten to toss you about. But if you can that place of stillness like the little structure in the water you can hold your focus even if it’s just for a moment.

Winter Sanctuary On The Kanawha River

Hello friends!Tonight’s feature image is titled “Winter Sanctuary On The Kanawha River” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The evening sky fades into a velvety blue as I near the end of my daily journey back to my mountain. The glow of the headlights pierce the darkness to reveal the yellow lines that guide me home. As I pass through curves the radiance of sodium lights casts their luminance against the darkness ahead of me. The majestic old inn stands near the river with its Victorian columns and stone walls that surround the grounds welcoming all passers by into sanctuary for the night. As pulled into the parking lot of Methodist church on the other side of town I could still the inviting glow of the lights from the Glen Ferris Inn. The reflection danced on the water with sky in it’s indigo hue. I knew that I had found tonight’s feature image.
