GEESE and LIGHT


It's been a quiet morning here on the north shore. Out back, a flotilla of Canada geese drifted by in uncustomary silence, as the rising sun dappled the lawn and the breakwall parapet. Inside, a small ray of sunlight bent itself through one of the crystal sun-catchers that hang in the front window, and left its mysterious geometry on the wall beside the goose bowl.

Those geese must be locals. I haven't heard any migrators overhead yet. Have you?

I love the shot of them just floating together there.

They're beautiful as always, Deborah! I love the geese! Haven't seen many up here yet. Hope you have a lovely day! Hard to believe it's the middle of the week already! Guess time really does fly when you're having fun, but I'm a little reluctant to see fall just yet.

Your observations of the morning light are so lovely.

Two neat sights. I know the geese are loud passing over, I will have to listen next time I see them in the water.

I think that little spot of light is beautiful. Once in a while I get one in my kitchen sink.

Love that bowl.

The sun is noticeably lower in the sky now and comes in windows in a different way at this time of year. Such a pretty gift from a ray of light.

This is indeed a flotilla! I love light slanting across the land.

That's kind of magical, that prism on the wall.

This morning on the train, the sun caught the edge of my rimless glasses and made bits of light dance all over my newspaper.

So few words but they speak to me so much.
