high anxiety…

“Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strengths.” Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92)

Colorful Transition…

A few days ago, I showed you the Pop the Cork rose with its creamy yellowish beginning. This pic shows the transition yesterday morning…pink tinging along the edge of the petals.

Transitions can be subtle…

The image below doesn’t seem to depict much in the way of being volatile or powerful. Yet, this image was as the weather transitioned from a few gusts of wind to, for the next several hours, sustained forty mile per hour winds with gusts pushing 70 mph in Portland and at 90 mph on the Oregon Coast. The front pushed up the Oregon Coast into Washington, skirting Portland, with nary a raindrop in Portland and temps in the low 60’s. 100,0000 residences were without power; traffic signals went out snarling rush hour/holiday shoppers traffic; and in one tragic moment a tree fell killing an 11 year old boy in a car and injuring his mother. Not a huge weather event, but the transition below was a perfect image of darkness over taking light.

Half Light of Dusk…

‘in the half-light of dusk’

“…in the half-light of dusk…before the night has plunged
things back into themselves there is a settlement in which
the external and the internal are continuous with the evening air
if you are alone at the edge of shadows you are not alone
the hours of light shine in you with a compacted energy that
also burns in tree and stone partly revealed and partly veiled..”

Thomas A. Clark, The Path to the Sea
