“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” ~Helen Keller

Oh! Don’t worry about it Lily! But I’ll say a big “Thank You” for doing that. I am having so much trouble visiting blogs. It’s really what I want to do! I just need about 12 more hours in the day!
They should get things together on WP! 😉
Do you think we could find someone to pay us to read blogs? 🙂
What a fantastic idea! You are a genius! Let’s get an ad ready! 😉 tee hee…
I always wondered what ist feels to soar the sky like the a bird does. The freedom, the joy, the peace and calmness, the feeling of being close to God who made Nature in all its splendor. Beautiful post my friend. Like a ray of sunshine on a brand new day!

Thank you Gail! I’m so glad you stopped by! We sat on the porch of the inn and watched the colors change over the valley below…it was beautiful.
What a very beautiful picture! 🙂
Thank you, zelmare! I had fun that evening with a pretty sunset. I saw the bird, but didn’t think he’d show up! (he doesn’t really!!)

Nice “peaceful” image Judy.
Thank you, Jim! I did like that one…except the bird looks rather “stuck” on the tree! I pushed the shutter a split second too soon! 🙂 I’ve missed your blog with all my travels. I have to get over and get my Scottish “fix”!!
