It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Wordless Wednesday: With a few words


Nina's Mystorian necklace and book.

Images of Asilomar and the Pacific Ocean.

"...Oh, good scholar, I say to myself,
how can you help but grow wise
with such teachings as these...
The untrimmable light of the world,
the ocean's shine,
the prayers that are made
out of grass?" ~m. oliver~

Thank you, Nina and all the people who made this workshop possible. I'm even beginning to love the ocean..., from a distance.

Another great post. I love to walk on the beach but do not like going into ocean. I prefer my pool. Thank you for your visit and nice comment to my last post. Have a great evening. Madeline

I love this quote!

The beachy scenes delight me! I'm due for a little sand between the toes. My trips to Monterey and Carmel always seemed to involve more fog than sandied toes. But I'm game to try again! : D
