Solitude in the Snow


Dock Square was quiet...

...a lonely bench at the edge of the sea, as the
sky and ocean become one.

Down the road, our favorite house sits alone
on the rocky cliff.

Home Again


... the sunset took on the look of a watercolor
sky tonight, back in
Maine after visiting my
parents for a month.

It's so nice to be home but I do miss them already.
Fortunately, Skype provides us with an opportunity
to visit anytime from a distance, so I can join them
for breakfast!

A Movie, Winter Beach in Maine

D sent me a little movie that he took yesterday
of one of the beaches where we walk.
Hope you enjoy the serenity of the sea and
the cold wintry beach from the warmth of your home.

Snow in Maine


D sent me snow photos this morning reflecting
the recent snowfall yesterday in Maine.
This is what I am missing while I'm
in Connecticut where there's only
4 or 5 inches of snow.
Actually, I love the look of all of the snow!
It's like the winters of years past when we
were children.
It will probably still be there when I return
home next weekend.
What kind of winter are you having?

Another Snowfall

Snow gently fell throughout the morning,
another day in Connecticut.
Being snowed in, I spent the afternoon
watching an old movie
with my parents and
doing some drawing.

Gentle Snow


...snow gently fell in the late afternoon.

Early Sunday morning I peeked out of the
window as the streetlight cast a glow and
a single bird visited the bird feeder.

Light Snow Tonight


Looking through the window this evening,
reveals snow lightly falling in the glow of the streetlight.
We could be in for a messy day tomorrow, snow and
freezing rain. I'm still in Connecticut.
Will be continued....

Here it is Wednesday late afternoon...just a dusting of
snow and trees are coated with ice, all is slippery
in Connecticut.

Tools of the Trade



My brother stopped by  my parents
 house to do some fix-it-up things for
them and he brought his tote bag 
of tools. 
I set my tote bag of my trade down
besides his and the contrast made
me smile. I couldn't even lift his!

First Day of 2009


...catching a glimpse of the sun setting
while on a short walk around my parents
neighborhood at the end of the
first day of the New Year.

ps.
D sent me this photo...while I'm in Connecticut,
he's back in Maine. To raise money
for charity
this morning, brave folks
took a dip in the ocean, the air temperature
was about 9 degrees. D missed the big event
and by the time he arrived by most had left.
There were a few folks still there and you can
see someone running out the ocean!
