With today’s sunset, I focused less on the sky and more on the sunlit branches cast in silhouette.

A paper umbrella, its red fading in the sunlight.

Powdered cinnamon about to be measured for apple crisp.

Steve’s well-used cook books. 😉

A golden yolk … too runny for me to eat, but so beautiful in the morning light.

Well, after a long day at the computer that left me with eyes sore and lower back aching, plus the host of other things that happened, I was starting to get a little grumpy.  Not seriously so, just enough to make me feel a bit sorry for myself as the work day ended.  I leaned back in my chair with head thrown back wondering all sorts of thoughts.  That’s when it happened.

I turned my head just a fraction of an inch and out of the corner of my eye I saw color.  As if someone had taken a paint brush dipped in orange and blue and browns and pinks and just a hint of gold and raked the dripping bristles across the sky.

Even as red gave way to indigo and soon to darkest night, I felt my day lighten. No matter the few aches and pains and issues I might have, I was reminded in a relatively few minutes, how lucky I am in this life.

Belle Isle Marsh Reservation in East Boston, Massachusetts is Boston’s last remaining salt marsh.  It is a family-friendly, dog-friendly (i.e. watch your step!), easy to traverse recreation spot.  Because it is near the airport, there is often the interesting juxtaposition of a plane flying over as a white heron or mallard duck or any number of other seabirds look up at a fellow winged beast.

It is a regular hiking spot for Steve and I.  I enjoy photographing the foliage in silhouette against the sky …

… and the end of season seeds and berries about to hit the ground.

He enjoys collecting juniper berries for one of his special sauces. 😉

You can read more about Belle Isle here.  And, you may read more about Steve’s Juniper Berry Sauce in the near future.  Yum.  Meanwhile, have a good Monday, folks.

Long ago, I found two white feathers in the deep dark woods beneath a towering tree.  At least that’s the story I told a little girl in need of a fairy tale.  In fact, I found these lovely wisps in an art store.  I tucked them into a blue vase.  Awaiting inspiration, I guess.  Well, this Sunday, inspiration flooded through the windows as sunlight … as always, illuminating life’s simple beauty.
