  1. He knows...he'll take care of your tender heart...

  2. the old man smiles >as he walks the young man's path >he once was

    __No longer having to "Face the Pace."
    __Yours, a beautiful, and truthful 'state' of life's processes, Kristin; we all reach that 'site,' and at least, we can 'smile' some.

  3. Thank you both! :) I took this photo in my hometown...half of our town is down the hill and the other half is on top of it. I was driving up the hill toward home in a holiday tizzy. I see this view of the river every single day of my life, but for some reason in the middle of all the busy commotion, it caught my eye in the rearview mirror. I turned the car around, parked at the overlook, and spent a few quiet moments there. I allowed myself to forget that to-do list for a few precious minutes and I just sat there and breathed and watched the river moving hurry or rush for him. It reminded me that there will come a day when I won't be so busy, but that in the meantime, I must stop occasionally to take in the scenery. There is so much beauty around us if we just make the time to notice.

  4. nice picture! drove through there just a while ago. :)

  5. From your eyes to the river and beyond, I can just imagine the people running in circles within each of the houses visible, and those that are not visible.

    There is something romantic about a slow, steady course, unwavering - like the warmth of long ago dreams that still comfort us on cold dark stormy nights, melting the restlessness our souls into a peaceful sleep.

    Happy Holidays Pilgrim - Your village nestled by the river looks like a nice place to be.

  6. Great set, here Kristin :)

    its difficult to imagine river as an old man, though,

    Hope you had a great Christmas :)


  7. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year.

    I've been catching up on your poems and photos and need to pause and enjoy them.
