Giving Thanks

I find myself giving thanks for all the things that cost nothing and are worth everything.

Autumns Last Gasp


, , ,

Like many New Englanders I love fall, and can feel gloomy as the color drops and blows away.  But as I reflect on it theologically, Fall’s last gasp reminds me of the hope and faith found in Renewal.  The Earth is preparing to go dormant in a kind of death, with its certain promise to resurrect in Spring.

I thought this was a perfect day to enjoy Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge.  One of my favorite spots in the city which seems to magically blend history, art, nature and community on holy ground and air filled with life’s untold stories.

Grey Inspiration

Head of the Charles Regatta 2014

Two weeks ago I watched the men’s 70+ event at HOCR/2014, followed by the women’s 60+ event.  While not a “picture-perfect” day for photography, there was something perfect about seeing all that grey hair out on the water.  Inspirational. Humbling.

Sweet Autumn

My Dear Glorious Autumn,

You are gentle, you are sweet and our time together far too brief.  I wish I could follow you around the world.

My Day of Summer

Walking along the dunes of Ogungquit Beach.  Soft shades of grey, green and blue. Gentle sounds of surf, seagulls and wind. The sensation of cool sand moving between my toes.

Dunes, Ogungquit Beach, Maine

I hate the question “did you have a good summer?”  I don’t remember what it’s like to “have a summer” – today is my summer.  It is enough.
