To me, this is a dream spot. A lone white house, surrounded by green, at the edge of the sea. On the cliffs above is a little whitewashed town, and just off to the left is Worm’s Head. A place to live, to write, to love.

This handsome gentleman was most flirtatious, blocking my path, spreading his feathers, and doing a full 360 to show himself off to all of his best advantages, trying to win my affections.

It was a gentle weather day, a blessing in January. We are preparing for Stock Show weather, which means C-O-L-D. It will be a high of 20 on Saturday for opening day. I know I’ve been rather boring lately, with little but the weather and an occasional thought. Trust me, I’ve been thinking, but mostly I’ve been workingworkingworkingworkingworkingworking. Another two weeks of constant work and I hope my thoughts and my blog will be more expressive. I miss me.

Quote of the day: “Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.” – Norman Juster

Should I be posting Christmas pictures instead of other seasons? I don’t know. What I know is that now that we are past the most recent apocalypse prediction, we might just hope that we have a new world unfolding before us – a kinder, gentler, more beautiful, more tender, more thoughtful world. A new spring born this Christmas season.

There are two times of day when it is best to shoot pictures – around sunrise, and around sunset. I am rarely up around sunrise in the islands, so we have to settle for the Golden Hour of sunset.

My favorite beach in the whole world. So happy MKL liked it too. It was wonderful to make new memories, and I came back with an extra-special glow.

Quote of the day: “Lies are a little fortress; inside them you can feel safe and powerful. Through your little fortress of lies, you try to run your life and manipulate others. But the fortress needs walls, so you build some. These are the justifications for your lies. You know, like you are doing this to protect someone you love, to keep them from feeling pain. Whatever works, just so you feel okay about the lies.” – Wm. Paul Young
