poem

Almost Spring

earth stretches

and slowly awakens

from its  slumber

in no hurry

to please the masses

shivering from the cold

in its time

the earth warms

the ground beneath our feet

the activity of green growth

begins to make an appearance

and very soon

there will be an explosion of color

how very good our God

is to us

as He gifts us

with the beauty of Spring..

When the Winds Blows

This photo was taken on March 3rd on a beautiful day on the coast of Oregon, Lincoln City to be exact.

People and dogs were out, and some children romping about in a small stream of water draining off a cliff. Beet red feet, and appearing to be having  the time of their little lives. Most adults were bundled up and snug in their jackets.

Then there was this kite surfer, I am not sure if that is the right terminology. I was intrigued as we watched him set up his kite on the beach, before he got into the water. I could have watched him for a long time. Not only would I consider him brave and adventurous, but very strong too. Another man, eventually joined him and I am sure it is a heart pumping thrill. It was a lovely afternoon, and we did find some tiny rock treasures and a few agates, which made our day.

I would like to address a problem with Windows 10. The computer we purchased in December has baffled me. For some reason when I transfer photos from my cameras to computer, they have ended up in different destinations. Some are easy to find and then others are somewhere on the computer. On top of it, I am no longer able to use Picasa, which was one of my favorite methods for photo editing. I am not the brightest light bulb in the world of computer technology, but I admit, it has not been a fun experience. I am over the frustration, somewhat and will make the best of it…
