March Wanderings

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “March Wanderings 30420” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The cool night air is filled with the chorus of the Spring Peepers as the mists fall gently on the mountain. The water condenses and pools into tiny rivers that criss-cross the hillside. Soon afterwards the sun breaks over the ridges to unveil the new world left behind by the gently falling water. It’s a good day for wandering around. All throughout the mountains the peepers songs have awoken tiny sprouts with only 1 or 2 small circular leaves. The soft green moss seems to have a new vibrancy as it slowly covers the stones and logs. The change is still in the air but in not too many days it will settle on the ground like the rain and our forests will be green again.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

A Quiet Moment Of Connection

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Gentle Flow 31520” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The big blue truck eases gently from the pavement to the gravel. As I roll down the window the aroma of my morning coffee is interrupted with scent of the moss mingled with that of the stone and the sounds of the gently flowing water. I confirm in my heart that this moment is mine and silence the playback from my tablet as I exit the truck. There are certain spots in this world that are like recharging stations. Some are awe inspiring landscapes like the Grand Canyon but most are just little groves and streams. The smaller ones are no less powerful. They’re just harder to find. I suppose that it’s human nature to look for a big God in big places where nature is overpowering and generally speaking God will meet us in those spots too. But it’s the still, small voice that speaks volumes. All we need is to stop and hear with the intention of listening. The stone is the same age everywhere that there is earth and the water touches all parts of the globe at one point in time. It’s all part of creation and it’s all connected. Including you and I. All we need to do is take a quiet moment to acknowledge the connection with nature and it’s creator.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

A Few Minutes With The Giggling Stream

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Gentle Moments 30320” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The trickling sounds of gently falling water captures my heart and draws me into the edge of my forest. The little stream proudly displays itself as winds down the mountain from places unseen. As it makes it’s way to the river it playfully tosses the leaves and twigs where it may. The small streams have always carried a childlike spirit of innocence to me. As it flows through the forest floor and over the various stones the sounds of the the stream are more like giggling in my ears. I’ve always imagined that the water tickles the roots of the trees in mischievous play. It would be a challenge indeed to see if you could make a mighty oak lose it’s composure and laugh uncontrollably. And perhaps the odd creaking and groaning sometimes heard in the forest is just the way they laugh when a creek tickles their feet. And then somewhere in the forest the creek forms small pools where a magical jelly springs to life and becomes a school of tadpoles and the red eft waits patiently to change it’s color and return to the aquatic world that spawned it. Somewhere that’s not too far from the water but higher up on the mountain a small clay chimney rises from the leaves. This is where the blue crayfish dwells. Though seldom seen today they roam the dry land and return to their holes only to rest. And only a little farther upstream a doe takes a drink from the fresh cool water and waits in the thicket for the little one to join the world in just a few weeks. All are connected by the playful little stream and perhaps it giggles because it knows all the secrets of the forest.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Standing On The River’s Edge And Wondering About The Past

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Kanawha Falls 112420b” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Looking out access the mighty Kanawha River as it spills over the stones has become a favored activity for me. Even in the gray condition of late Fall and Early Winter I like to mentally lose myself standing beneath the willows and allowing the sound of the falls to wash away the mental clutter that builds up throughout the day. The stones look like an ancient stairway from a forgotten civilization that passed into the river long ago. In an age when the river was young and much smaller. I can almost hear the echoes of people on the stairs as they go about their daily lives of trading fish and freshwater oysters from the river for herbs and seeds that were brought down from the mountains. A young boy carries a bundle of sticks that have been grown and prepared for making a friction fire. His sister is trading a stack of hand woven baskets made from the ancestors of the very willows that now shelter me. There is laughter as old friends recount stories of their youth and lessons learned the hard way. In some ways life in those days was hard but they had time and space for each other. And that was what made it so worth the living.

The Steady Place

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha Falls 3920” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The evening light falls softly on the big river. The changing of the time has allowed me to reach Kanawha Falls with just enough light to set up my tripod and attempt a long exposure. I’m drawn to the rocks that are exposed as the water flows around them. The steady place in an ever changing world. My spirit recalls the lyrics of the old hymn “On Christ the solid rock I stand” as I watch the powerful stream of water crash over the edge. The flow of water is beautiful and calming from this side of the river but I wouldn’t want to be caught in it. It would be easy to be caught in the flow pulled down to the river bed. But on the steady place atop the rock there’s relative safety.

The world we live in is full of powerful streams of both news and rumors that would sweep us away and pull us under if we allow ourselves to caught up in them. But look for that steady place that elevated above the flow where peace reigns and dwell there instead.

Hey Friends! Just a quick reminder that graduation will be here before you know it. Lloyds Lens Photography is available for portraits!!
