Thought of the Week: How can anyone not love nature? It’s so awesome and varied, so quiet and then thrilling…The sky was so dark this morning that when I tried to take pictures the stupid flash came on and all I got was dumb dark photos. I switched the focus to “night” and, whalah!, it worked better. (I really should read the manual more thoroughly. 🙂 )

rainy morning

The sky is blue now, the sun glistening up our hilltop neighborhood…
