Crane and Plum

white-hot summer sun
crane seeks shelter in plum tree
still lake reflects sky

    • Six degrees?! When you’re frozen you have no choice but to be Zen-like, right? We were in the low 80s today–spring-like temperatures…a warm Christmas for us this year.

      Thanks, Victoria…Merry Christmas, sweet friend!

      • Lost the desire to blog for a bit, but sitting down one day I said to myself, Hey, I’ve read all these books and still reading, why not blog about them. Thus a new category was started called Classic Men. Although each entry is about a main character of a book, I generalized it.

        Hope you enjoyed your Christmas Holidays. 🙂

        • I’ve had my down time on blogging too… But I like your idea…why not work off your love of reading and write about the characters. I’ll check it out.

          Had a pretty quiet family dinner and evening with our large (and growing) extended family. Hope yours was a pleasant one too. xo
