New Hampshire on an early morning walk. It is May, I’m taking my time enjoying the fresh morning air, not thinking about anything else but the moment.
Only now am getting to see some of the pictures I took during our time away. A holiday is time for me to wander, some pictures were taken with my Lumix, others with my iPhone. Slowly I will get to them, for tonight, I wanted to drop in and say hi… I’ve missed you all. It wasn’t till we were on our way back today that I gave in and bought an Acer Notebook, sorry to all you Apple peeps, I simply can’t work away on an iPad like I can a Windows/PC…
You won’t see a lot of sunshine, just a lot of fresh mountain air, and the fresh new buds of new sprouts. When the windows were open we could hear the crystal clear water cascading down the mountain side through the gorge. Looking out from out two side windows, all we saw was the drop down to the forest floor. Already the bears have started to stir, one guest who stayed in one of the back “cabin/rooms” saw a bear wandering in the wooded area, in back of the Inn a few days before we arrived. We were advised not to let our dogs off leash or unattended.
We did drive down one day into the southern part of NH, where the bigger cities are, we didn’t stay long, a few hours. that was all we needed before we high tailed it back up north into the National Forest area, where we were staying, Holidays are never long enough, but, we know we will go back, and really, I missed being home, and chatting with you. Go figure. I love my time with you. Makes me feel good. Now I’ll be able to catch up on what you all have been doing.
It is late in the day, but to all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day.
Sometimes we have to do what we want .. no matter what. Ringo decided he was going to come to visit. I saw him before he arrived, only I had my own ideas, but his desire to be present over ruled my half-baked idea.
That is what happens in life, we may want something, we have it in our mind, just what we want or what we need to do to achieve or get to our goal, However along the way, it just didn’t or doesn’t work out that way. You followed the steps, you went forward the way you thought you should, and when you got to the end.. It just wasn’t the same. Not that it was a negative or simply not to your liking, it just wasn’t what you had, had in mind.
As an artist/writer, or other creative soul, it is an experience that happens to us often enough. We are good at adapting, truth be told, we kind of like the hiccups along the way, It allows for opportunities to experiment and usually go beyond what we have grown comfortable with.

I remembered I had a picture that would give a visual on what some areas are like in our part of the world right now. Many people have been and are dealing with flooding. Not just one or two areas, many places in the Province, not only cottage country, any where, there is water. Our lakes, and rivers are swollen and over flowing their banks. People are scrambling to save what they can. There have been thousands and thousands of sand bags filled and carried to numerous destinations. Still the water rises.
According to weather specialists, we’ve not seen the likes in decades, records have been broken. The climate changes the world is experiencing is all very real.
Please pray for those in need, and give thanks of appreciation to the many generous souls who have come forward to volunteer their time and help to those who are having to face the raging rising waters, and watch helplessly as their property disappears under the incoming tides.

The attraction just happened
it was a piece in the ground, we needed to dig out..
took hours to break and dig it up
when I saw it, I couldn’t let it go
it now stands in the garden
I’ll enjoy it all year round.
Happy week-end everyone!
