It is morning Up North. O, Ivy, and I loaded the car and left home yesterday and after a couple of stops, we were on the open road headed east, then north. We pulled into the cottage driveway a little after sunset, but the lake was bathed in blue with a crisp orange and red northwestern shoreline. Venus and Saturn provided bright white punctuation marks in the evening sky. B and W followed in another car a few hours later.
It’s sleepy and peaceful this morning Ivy sleeps on the footstool in the front room while O watches a video on the iPad on the couch. B and W are still sleeping and I am here struggling with the right words to match the photos.
I cannot even begin to count the number of trips we’ve made to this place – we’ve been here at least once in every month of the year. Each time I am here, I snap a photo, or two, or more. The sun sets in different places each season and gradually shifts from the northwest in summer to the southwest in winter and back as Earth revolves around the sun and shifts its tilt away from the sun and back.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
Ecclesiastes – 3:1
This week the Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge subject is – Muse. All of us have some place or something that interests and intrigues us most and we take photographs at different times or simply retreat to when we need to reboot and restore.
1. any of the nine sister goddesses in Greek mythology presiding over song and poetry and the arts and sciences (capitalized)
2. a source of inspiration; especially : a guiding genius
I never tire of watching sunset, or looking at the lake, or sipping coffee in the front room, or sitting on the deck reading a book, or just being.
We’re here. Today is gonna be a great day, I know it and I can feel it, so I’d better jump up, jump in, and seize the day. Making the days Count, one day at a time, one moment frozen in time, just being.
Where do you find your muse or inspiration?
This post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge at WordPress.com, but it is inspired by the lake. Have a wonderful week.
