Endless Rivers

of Hope

Two Flowers

In the Quietus

The earth’s music could be heard

We stopped to listen


In this period of quietus, I’m working on photographs of almost every flower we have in our yard. These are in a pot near the front porch. I was drawn to the splashes of dark pink, and the way they contrast with the bright white petals. Nature’s display of diversity.

There are silver linings and hidden treasures in everything we encounter; all we must do is listen and look.

        Oh dear….I was so hoping you wouldn’t ask me, haha!! I didn’t get a step counter yet–but thanks for the reminder…I’ll “hop” over to Amazon now and put it in my cart (because I DID look at them! I’m going to get a no-frills basic one 🙂 ) 😉💙

        Yeah I was almost going to get the $10 one that looks like you put it on your foot. I was just kidding though… don’t rush on my account. I’m still waiting to see if it really gets me moving… so far it’s 50/50 – sometimes yes sometimes no.
