dusk understood

dusk
as the day draws to a close ... the sun drops behind the trees
much undone ...unsaid
whisper
the soft shadows gently wrap up the hours of light
unassuming ...unbelievable

Thanks for visiting my little blurgh...I am so very glad I found yours because of that.

I too, am red turning grey. Maybe we were separated at birth?

I'm gonna have me a little look around your lovely images and words.

these shadows are gentle and nurturing, the feel very homely and safe. If that makes any sense.

I have a tendency to get lost in the clavicle bones of a woman. Such loveliness. Always reminds me of the novel 'The English Patient.'
Well done with the play of light and the dance of the shadows, in other words.

The last few days have been all about me, me, me, and now I find the time to visit others. I came here first - something told me to. This is calming & soft & feels like an understanding. Thank you.

you should blow up the self-portrait (i'm guessing) and frame it. yes.
