Following the Light 

8 Jun

One of the most fascinating things about living up here… Both through a single afternoon and through the seasons  is following the light as it slants down through the hills, vegitation and trees.  I especially like walking the land in late afternoon.  







A late afternoon spring ramble.  Oh my, it takes some scrambling to keep up with the shifting light on a daily basis!

And now for your viewing pleasure, a seasonal spectrum of the amazing light show we are fortunate to see up here.  Much less scrambling I can assure you









It is such a gift to follow the land and God’s light and grace through the seasons or even a single afternoon!

So today I realized it’s been a while since I’ve written anything here.  But you know, Life has a way of getting in the way…wood stacking, shoveling, sweeping, doctor and dentist appointments and of course work.  I tend to get caught up in what needs to be done.  But as my beautiful wife reminded me the other day, it’s also important to take time for the things you love!

we laugh a lot…still, after 14 years…my redheaded wife and I. 

chicken antics.   

my beloved pups.  

and our crazy, hunter supreme cat…Oliver T Posh.

So in the past few weeks I’ve been trying to incorporate more of what I love into my life.  See above and below photos.





Music, photography, and walking/hiking our land with my canine and feline friends.  Some  of my favorite things!

The flowers are blooming and the first of the garden put in…that’s mostly my wife.   And after years of research and a little bit of trepidation, my honeybees have arrived and been installed.  I am now a beekeeper!





That’s a lot to be grateful for!
