Happy New Decade!
May your emotional, psychological and spiritual vision be 20/20 this year.
Crab apples on our tree take on the look of having been ‘candied’ as cold, moist air crystallizes on the dimpled surfaces of the fruit. Hoar frost adds a lacy edge to the stems for an added touch of decoration. Although the air felt completely still, it’s imperceptible movement is revealed by the direction the crystal arrows point.

I couldn’t resist using some more coloured leaves for the desktop calendar. I love how the red and green remind us that Christmas isn’t very far off. Have you started holiday shopping?
If you’d like to have the calendar for your cell phone, you can save this one:
Last month, I posted some instructions for putting the image on your lock screen in case you need it.

It reminded me of the last time I waded into cold winter waters for some icy shots. I shared a number of those shots in this post which explains the frozen lake surface in the image below. It’s from the 2015 shoot I selected the image for our calendar this month.

This fall just as the lake was beginning to freeze over, a couple of branches collected frozen bubbles and formed a heart!
Last spring, I almost stepped on to this frosty heart just outside the door to our garage.
And I noticed this heart in a birch tree late last summer.
To me these are little messages of love from my Heavenly Father.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
Sigh. The last few months of my digital life journey have been full of speed bumps and detours. Equipment failure and replacement has had me scrambling to maintain a grasp of where all the bits and bytes of my digital data exist while hard drives and backups seem to play a cruel shell game. Meanwhile, from every side, messages about having a gratitude attitude bombard me. Reminders have been popping up from some unlikely sources and have helped me gain perspective. Of course, my digital stuff is just that – stuff. Life and love, family and friends are all far more important. And I am truly blessed!
So, while my digital files play hide and seek on the assortment of drives in my possession, I offer a desktop image from the past. I think it’s one worth repeating. Thanks for understanding.
