Gone ...

I drove out to Loxahatchee Park this evening, I just love watching the alligators play at dusk. This park is one of the few places to take a decent sunset photo here on the east coast of Florida.

     I was a little disappointed with the cloud coverage in the west so no sunset photos, even more disappointing was finding that the tree in the photo below is gone. I guess it didn't make it through the hurricane season last year.

     I'm reprinting the entry I wrote last November when I took this photo. The words mean as much to me today as they did the day I wrote them. Your voices have become very important to me, they help me to explore and define my own.

Shades of Blue ...  

     When you look at this sky is the color of blue that

 you see so much different from what I see?

     Is the blue that you see determined only by what

 you have always known or by what those that think and speak

just like you see?

     I am grateful for the privilege of learning to listen to

voices that are not necessarily just like my own, I often

find comfort and solace there.

great pic but when I look at it, I can see the beginning of a scary movie just beginning with this shot of a dark night with what looks like a bewitched tree coming to life. Steven Spielberg would love it !! lol

That is a nice silhouette. Love the blue color of the sky. Too bad the tree is gone though. A westward view is gold :-)

From what I saw, not much made it through the hurricanes last year. I may be coming back your way...
