April - fickle month
The morning's bright light speaks of summer's promise.
The air chills my skin with winter's farewell kiss.

White clouds scud along the horizon like sea-flecked foam in the wake of the setting sun.


I totally did not snap this whilst moving in my vehicle. I was at a stop sign *halo*.
I also wish I had a better camera for these shots than the mobile's camera.

The quality of light is stunning this morning. I awoke to a viridian world filtered through a veil of rain. It was a perfect moment to stretch out and enjoy watching the leaves dip and bow as rain drops danced down along them; and it made it that much easier to get up and go to work knowing that many more sights like this were awaiting me on my drive.



"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
~Jack London

I love geraniums. I love them so much that I am showing the geraniums that I have on my patio off to the world.



They cannot understand that the figure of a labourer -- some furrows in a ploughed field, a bit of sand, sea and sky -- are serious objects, so difficult but at the same time so beautiful, that it is indeed worth while to devote one's life to the task of expressing the poetry hidden in them.
-Vincent van Gogh
