Adrift

I haven’t felt much like writing my feelings and doings in a blog lately. My fears for the future of us all is not something I wish to burden others with, although I know there is a time of rejoicing later. I am troubled in spirit.

I have a lot of things I would write about if I could just make myself sit and start typing.

Still…

I have been taking pictures of course, and here are some of my favorites.

The first is my new betta! I have a beautiful cobalt blue female, too, but I couldn’t get a good image of her.

One of my favorite flowers to bloom in the spare and dry autumn time is Lycoris radiata, a relative of the much larger pink ‘Naked Lady’ lily. These flowers come up from bare ground and get about 12″ tall.

This is a new banana leaf, unfurling. The three green tones caught my eye, the two shades causing a deeper shadow of color on the bottom.

The sun came up on the equinox morning, giving a twice a year shadow to my rusty sawblade collection.

The last one is a stunning green dragonfly that spent the night on my harvest decoration on my front porch. He just sat there in a cold stupor, giving me a great photo opportunity.

    I was able to look over the blog from FoodforThought the other day at lunch. (While I had my classroom door locked so I could get a tiny dose of sanity mainlined before my high school students came back!) I was not able to sneak enough time to email you about the lovely photos. . .but I was able to save the dragonfly to my desktop, then display it on my Promethean board (big projection screen connected to computer!) for the kids to see. . . .a small bit of grace in an otherwise really stressful week for them. Thank you.
