Monday, first day of the week

Poudre River in Winter

Poudre River in Winter

Cloudy and overcast skies this morning. Looking and feeling like winter, probably because it is. A few snowflakes could be seen on my walk to the bus stop. I thought, sorry, there I go again thinking, I could add to the wintery mood if I converted this image to black and white. They, those weather guys, say we are only going to reach the low 20’s today. I’ve decided to NOT wear my sandals, so my biggest decision for the day has been made. I’m now at the Lory Student Center to read and write. Will meet a good friend for brunch later. Have a super Awesome week!

Every day, priests minutely examine the Law
And endlessly chant complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn
How to read the love letters sent by the wind and rain,
The snow and moon.

Had coffee with Abbie, my oldest granddaughter, yesterday. She is one of four wonderful gifts my children have gifted me. Hope you have a great day!

Lost Horizon

Fog and light snow at Lake Loveland

Fog and light snow at Lake Loveland

This image is from 2011 and was taken on the west side of Lake Loveland. The fog and light snow created a scene with seemingly no horizon. It is a simple image that I converted to black and white. Our weather forecast is for a 30% chance of light rain and snow both today and Monday. Right we’re at 17 degrees and overcast skies. Hope your having a great weekend.

Trees at Sunset

Trees at Sunset

This was taken 5 years ago and is a pair of favorite trees I visited a lot. I have not been there for quite some time and wonder how they would look now. Good grief, we are less than a week away from Christmas.  It is coming up too fast. I noticed we are expecting to have a bit of cooler weather for Christmas. They say snow Thursday through Saturday then single digit temperatures at night for the next 5 days. Brrr!

Being Present

Being present is about living where I’m at in my own shoes. I cannot live in the past or future. Being present is being awake. Acceptance. I’ve heard it said,  “Reality is only experienced when we live life in the present.” May I live today in the present!
