Shutter Click & Chat 12/14

Trees are Earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.

These two young trees are just outside of our front door, and yet I have repeatedly failed to notice their beauty until today. I stepped out just before sundown to call Yael in for dinner (The tiny figure in the playground is her.) and there they were. Well, here they are. Have you any trees to share?


Shutter Click & Chat 12/21 Sights of the season.

Recognizing that we aren't all gearing up for Christmas, I've left this one celebratory generic. Show me something wintry, Christmas-y, Hannukah-y, Solstice-y and more, just share a symbol of the season as you see fit.

Peace

I loved the quote by Tagore, very clever. Lovely trees, too. My trees, alas, are bare, they have shed their clothes until the spring.

Greetings from London.

trees are some of my favorite people! Thanks for thinking of us non-Christians at this lovely time of year. As much as we enjoy the side -benefits of Christmas celebrations (wow! Look at those lights!) we do appreciate a nod of awareness....

Thanks for posting this. It's lovely. It reminded me of a similar photo I took a few weeks ago. I'm working on a blog post about it now. It's funny the things we miss, that are right in front of our eyes. I believe we find them just at the moment we are supposed to... I also enjoyed the hunt for Yael! :)

I'm wondering about "Shutter Click and Chat." I'm sure you blogged about how it works somewhere, but I haven't the energy to search. Can you direct me to your original post about it... or tell a bit here (I'll check back)... or stop over at my blog and leave a comment (post title, "Watchful Treasure: Lone Autumn Tree Afar"). Thanks, and NO RUSH!!
