solace is found

along a garden fence

comfort among shadows

leaves of green flutter in song

Gayle said...

Lovely. My comfort today is in watering my vegetable garden, being careful not to dislodge a spider that lives amongst the tomato plant leaves!

Erin Wallace said...

This is a beautiful photo! Unfortunately, I haven't had much solace today - it's been incredibly busy here what with a toddler and a teenaer down!

mrs mediocrity said...

Part of it was coming here, this is always such a peaceful space. And I am about to leave to go running, that is my meditation. I love just that small bit of bright green in this photo, perfect.

very pretty; i like the assorted levels (three) almost as if a lens has been placed in front of the iamge

My comfort today?

Coming home to my sweet man. His smile. His hug. The way he immediately rubbed my feet with lotion - for a half hour.

Beautiful, elk. My comfort today is knowing that I'll soon be seeing my family. I'm attending a surprise birthday party for my twin brothers (their 50th) and several have flown in from different parts of the country. We're having a sleep-over!

Kellee said...

Truly gorgeous image. The textures are astounding.

I miss seeing your extraordinary photos! My comfort is in knowing that we are born into perfection. There is nothing holding us back from experiencing perfection. I'm grateful!

gently fluttering leaves, like birds, are so calming.

Candace said...

We need solace. Mine is being home for the weekend with nothing much to do but the usual chores and relax.

I still can't comment on your blog from Wordpress, it's the only Blogger one I'm still having trouble with :(

Ellie said...

I love this, relaxing in the shadows of our memories is where I find comfort~

Char said...

Marcie said...

Gorgeous shadow-work. And thanks for the link to the 'from here & there' site. I might just have to play along.

My comfort today was in the company of our relatives who live and work in Holand. Now I am enjoying this fantastic photo that you posted. :-)

emily wierenga said...

oh this is breathtaking... i find solace in the same, today; in green flutter leaves and black earthy shadows... i'm retreating, trying to find myself amidst a swarm of people... trying to find God, and seeing him in the stillness of nature. you bless me, friend.

beautiful image. i find comfort in closing my eyes to the warmth of the sun.

elizabeth said...

I just keep saying "oh!" at photos today. There must be something in the air. This photo makes me feel so happy and dreamy. There is just something about it.

Suvarna said...

my comfort lies in the eyes of my beautiful son today, such a joy to be around.

Suvarna said...

oh and love this beautiful image :-)

margie said...

my comfort is seeing the grandchildren in a few days, a daughter flying home, a son returning from a trip to israel and europe, a daughter returning from africa, so grown up, all our children.

Tracy said...

Uplifting image and words today, Elk... Comfort today was sitting out on the patio for lunch in the sun with my hubby on a regular Monday, us both working from home--felt briefly like summer vacation for an hour! :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

I love this, the light and shadow, the almost but not quite absence of color... beautiful.
