Fade '09

As another year, (n a decade), sinks into the west, I bring you my fav photo of the year. Feels like I've been sitting on this cupcake forever, but actually just since that previously seen sunset at fav beach in October.
.
After leaving the beach lot that evening, I'd stopped at the nearby golf course for a minute to fidget with items on the seat. Looked out the window, n behold! Yet another sunset miracle- the silver lining! The sun was down, but the clouds held the gorgeous, eerie glow against the course vegetation. I associate this vision of wonder with African savanah scenes... n I can hear drums while looking at it.
.
Also, I'm reminded of the "Survivor" tv show, because yes, I've survived another year. I'm glad to still live in this non-city place near the Atlantic ocean where I want to be. It often feels like camping out here, too... Where every now n then I'm reminded of the most beautiful pieces of Creation helping me to find serenity n peace in my soul.
.
A fleeting moment (year, decade), to be remembered, n shared...

The last paragraph teared me up, that I have such a fine friend who delights in simplicity, a friend who sees and shares the beauty of the biggest little things in life.

Thank you for the gift of that sky. I hear dancing feet to those drums.

MB, Salute (with green Tea, sent by Ellen)! Lets have enough time n money to visit more often-

Lynn, Glad you've enjoyed it. Yes, the younger one. Lets wish the year is kind to us...

JanF, Awww- it gets me emotional too, but I'm thinking alot lately of some who are departed, n also all the incorrect naysayers who told me long ago I'd have to move-
Praise the Creator for allowing me to record n relay such beauty.

BB, It looks like an ocean of carrot colors- you know where all the carrots have gone? (You ate 'em!) Happy New Ears to you too!

Paige, Thanks- Happy New Year!

Talon, No matter where you live, sights so special are rare- conditions having to be just so. I'd thought the sun was down, the show over- I was wrong, n so glad to've needed to pull over!

May your folks n furry folks have a happy n playful 2010!

ThommaLyn, I almost waited until Feb or so to post it- But what the heck- it fit my theme, as I "walk to the beat of a different drummer"-(Henry David Thoreau) N I knew you all could truelly appreciate this today.
Thanks, Have a fantastic New Year!

Oh my gosh!!!!!! How beautiful!!!! I can't find the FOLLOW button on your blog and I want to be a follower!!!! What is wrong with ME that I can't find it. Can you direct me to it? I almost missed this wonderful post. I read about your love from three decades ago just now. Very poignant. Would love for you to blog about that. <3

Bubbie, Thanks. I'm sorry I don't have a follow button here. You'd have to type it in (copy paste url) on your "edit profile" blogger dash-board option page. Some folks have, so I know you can.
I can't upgrade my blog template for widgets n formatting without losing control over my cherished link list, so I choose not to. My code changes are made manually. ESR is made to be simple for fast loading on my slow connection.

BB, my turnips are still alive under the new snow, n plastic out on the deck.
