round and round

the world we go

losing sight of what we know

spinning fast

out of control

delving in darkness

that masters the soul…

Lord, help us

help us quick

free us from what

makes us sick..

love will turn this world around

compassion and kindness

can make us sound…

weekly photo challenge

Weekly Photo Challenge: Under My Feet

We got out yesterday to do some more exploring. Mr. G. is feeling a bit perkier after three shoulder surgeries and being somewhat confined in his activities. The challenge for this week is Beneath Your Feet, or however you choose to interpret. We discovered an area not far from where we live, called Cascadia, where the So. Santiam River flows. We hiked to the Soda Creek waterfall. The water level was low but it still made for good photo opportunities.

birds

Why, Why, Why?

Today our world is all abuzz with questions…The why’s of many unanswered questions.

DSC_0025-003The sunflowers are looking more ragged each day, but the little birds of a feather don’t care. They are getting fed.

DSC_0032-002Look at the two little faces on the left. They appear to be looking at me. I wonder what they are thinking?

DSC_0052Despite the wind, they were busy chomping away.

DSC_0063-002Look at this!

Sunflower Pandemoniun

DSCN8393I am changing things up here. With much enthusiasm I planted Sunflower seeds, and Sunflowers are what I got. Tall towering ones. I call this post Pandemonium.

The bees are feasting and loving life right now.

Majestic beauties, you have enriched my days..

It is a serious thing

just to be alive

on this fresh morning

in this broken world..
