It has been a long gloomy season around here, gray skies, with continual snow or rain. Yesterday was sunny and I paused. Just warm enough to get out with only a fleece and vest, camera in hand.
I prayed a circle around our yard and captured natures red, skies blue, listened to the tall pines clap together as they swayed in the wind. I looked for the blue jay that has been hiding in the large lilac but all I saw were a few nests.
I needed yesterday to recharge and remind me of life beyond walls.
