"Every time you leave home,
Another road takes you
Into a world you were never in.

New strangers on other paths await.
New places that have never seen you
Will startle a little at your entry.
Old places that know you well
Will pretend nothing
Changed since your last visit.

When you travel,
A new silence
Goes with you
And, if you listen,
You will hear
What your heart would
Love to say."

John O'Donohue, from 'To Bless the Space Between Us'

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

I know I won't have the time tomorrow to be on the computer, so I thought I'd wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving today. I hope it's a wonderful one for you!

Love to all, Victoria

Cattitude From Max

Oh, HI Dad. What am I doing?

What are YOU doing?

Dad, I don't want to get down. As you can see, I'm being perfectly good. With the emphasis on 'perfect' as that applies to me and everything I...what?

Oh, all right, you don't have to be rude! I'll get down.

OK everybody, look out below! I'm coming down!

Dad can be such a grump. Sheesh.

There, Dad...happy now? I'm going to take a nap with Stella. Yeah, whatever. Now get that camera out of my face. What? Oh, right. Please.

Sunday Sunlight

I took this July 27, 2010, down at Lake Gregory in Crestline. It's one of the smallest lakes up here but it's my favorite because it isn't lined with boat docks.

Faeries Friday - Neve

This is Neve, which means 'snow' in Italian. She lives on the tree in my studio, which I leave up all year. It has a winter theme and there are several other winter and snow faeries that like to perch on its branches. It is supposed to snow tonight and they're happily anticipating me leaving the studio and going back to the house so they can fly out and have fun. Maybe I'd better do that right now...I think I'm starting to hear Faeries grumbling over by the tree!

Strange Behavior

Autumn is behaving very strangely up here. Some trees have turned, like the one in the photo above, some have turned and dropped their leaves. Some didn't turn colors, their leaves just turned brown and they dropped them, while others are hanging on to their brown, dry leaves. Then there are the Dogwoods; some of their leaves turned colors about a month ago, while the rest of the leaves remained green. Most of them are still green today. I can't remember an Autumn as strange as this one...I hope this isn't the way Autumn is going to behave from now on. I find it very disconcerting!

Too True, Emily...
