I started with the group Tell me a Story in March 2014. The object of the group was to take 1 day in the month and blog on it. It has been fun, and I have learned a lot about the different members of the group. Along the way I became an Admin of the group. This year I asked the group member is they would like to take things up a notch, and perhaps for the year, blog on a quote. The interpretation is open, blog on how the quote speaks to you personally. The quote for this month is as follows:
Every now and again take a good look at something not made with hands – a mountain, a start, the turn of a stream. There will come to you wisdom and patience and solace and, above all, the assurance that you are not alone in the world.
~ Sidney Lovett
When I looked at this quote my thoughts obviously turned first to nature. Nature in itself is an untold beauty for me. Looking back at the quote the words “not made with hands” stood out. It is not made with hands, yet it could be created. This past weekend we had tornado threats over a couple of days of the weekend. Added to that we had a whole lot of rain. Each morning I go outside to feed the ducks. Walking back in I passed a tree orchid that I have. Truly a parasite on a palm tree because I think it only flowers once a year and then only one stem off the multiple bulbs that it has.
Facing directly towards me was exactly what I was looking for. Created in nature… Beauty beyond expression. Masters at building. Although I am not sure that I would want to be alone in the world with the creators of these masterpieces.
It seems like the spiders have had a spurt in web building in our back garden. Combine that with rain and you have a beautiful piece of creation in front of you. Halfway through taking the images, I was photobombed by a squirrel. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of the quote.

I love going out with Amy. As a mom, these are special moments, captured in the click of a button. Especially now that she is living so far away. I managed to convince her that she needed to take walk through the Morikami Japanese Gardens and Museum. The grounds are stunning, the walk is about a mile long. If you are looking for a place that captures the beauty of nature and the subtle hints of the Japanese culture then Morikami is definitely worth a visit.

In December Jen asked me to take some photos of her for her Christmas Card. I love working with her. She is a stunning lady and a beautiful person all round. I have wanted to get out into a park with lots of trees and Jen was up for doing that as well.
