Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

No...Not in Black and White~

No, not in black and white.  Very gray, ugly skies with one click of the contrast button...gone...wahlah...just like that. 
The American Black Vulture was souring above a dead White tailed Deer and I really like these birds.  To me they are quite beautiful, compared to their friends the Turkey Vultures.  Both are very useful birds and when they soar, it makes me happy...what about you ;~)

I got the results of my Ultra Sound, for those whom have been keeping up with such things.  I am certain all is fine, just going through the rather mundane and long days, weeks of getting the OK.  Instead of just one nodule on the thyroid gland,  the Ultra Sound revealed that there are multiple nodules.  This Friday I go to Internist again, and then he wants me to see an Endocrinologist.  Tomorrow, I see the Neurosurgeon about the 3 bulging discs that are putting pressure on my spine, in my neck area.  All goes along with getting older, and I am doing it with joy in my heart...
I am looking at the beauty that surrounds me and I feel quite optomistic, for spring is just around the corner and I am so looking forward to warmer weather. 
Have a wonderful day~

  5. the bird seemed to have fun. So did you. :)

  6. Riding the wind so blissful to watch. I can't help but take their photos whenever they pass. Caught one scratching its head while soaring looking down at me. Then again he may have been attempting to block the glare from the reflection off my hairless dome. Love the silhouettes.
