Dusk to Dawn .....

Quick post. I'm so busy with Christmas, getting ready to the exhibition even through it is a little ways down the road, and fighting off a nasty cold! Painting every day, so should have some new ones to show you soon. Meantime there are moments of beauty. Sunsets and moon sets - both of which I captured on my camera. The sunset was so dramatic the other evening, it took my break away.

Dawn.  7:00 am this morning.  Moon setting over the mountains.  Just gorgeous.

Thanks for dropping over.  Hope you are nearly ready for Christmas.  I'm still running around like a mad fool!  Enjoy the season, whatever you are doing.

 “If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. (Don't Hesitate)”
