Looking out the living-room window today got me wondering about life and how very precious it is. Watching the leaves falling to the ground, knowing that change has come in our weather and how our lives can change in an instant through an accident or like my sweet husband, a gradual change over several years. We did not realize how precious those early years were, living our lives as if there was no tomorrow. But tomorrow comes and changes emerge, good or bad, and life continues. Oh this is all sounding so dreary, I think the weather along with the accident has made me stop and do a little life review. I have a lot of riches in my life, sometimes I just need to stop and realize how precious those riches are. Time being one of the most precious, something I so easily take for granted.
Having my camera with me is a precious gift, capturing the everyday beauty that surrounds us all is astonishing through the lens. Looking out the living room window the view is captivating. The dazzling yellows of the big maple tree in the front yard cast such a brilliant light yelling, "go get your camera and take pictures". Never one to argue with a maple tree, that is exactly what I did. Hope you enjoy my room with a view.

Until next time.......
