I began this blog a decade ago, when I was inspired by another woman's blog that had one beautiful photo a day. I took photos of things in my corner of the world, and sometimes added poetry. Then, over time, I began to concentrate almost exclusively on my art making, and my original intent was mostly pushed aside.
I'm feeling the need to go back to my original intent, at least for a while. Winter seemed long to me, and I was plagued by nagging illnesses - nothing too awful, but enough to sap my energy and enthusiasm for making art.
So, for now, I want to return to more frequent photos of things I find beautiful in my life. I have a new camera that I really enjoy, so that is part of it. And maybe I'll hunt around for some poetry too.
This is our local library, the Hedberg Public Library. It's quite close to our house, so I visit several times a week, to find books and books on CD for the car, and to research for my cemetery walks. In the spring the Bradford pear trees out near the road are glorious, as are the tulip beds. We've been given nice weather for a few days, so they are showing off their blossoms in a spectacular way.
Yes, I am aware that Bradford Pear trees have their detractors, but today I am enjoying the blossoms.
