I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Friday, November 11


This beauty graced my presence at the wetlands today
I believe it's a red-tailed hawk.
I saw freedom in him
A freedom we all share
thanks to Veterans alive and not 
from many lands
of many wars
throughout all time.

You really caught this beauty.
Grand sentiments but it is sad after all these years that our leaders still seem to think the easy option is war........suppose it is for them.

Laura, this post and a picture are so touching. You write so beautifully and your words always stay in my mind.

Yes, this bird is free. And your picture is reflecting it beautifully. Colors and contrast are fabulous. Against blue sky ( love this rich blue color) is a red tailed-hawk.

Very, very wonderful!!!!
