Sparkles

We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand - and melting like a snowflake. Marie Beyon

Thanks for your messages, took a couple of weeks off to sort some things and now back to enjoying what makes me happy sky watching and playing with colour.

Ok so some of you might not get the snowflake and beach connection, but for me the white sands and sparkling waters are about as close as I am getting for now. Enjoying living in the moment but with a plan.

Beautiful pathway to the ocean. Lovely shot--I'd like to be headed toward the beach for the afternoon. We've had enough snow in Kansas this year for both of us.

I would love to join you on that little sandy walk to the beach.

Sometimes it is necessary to take time off from blogging, no matter how addicted we have become.
